Microsoft is planning to bring certain console and PC games to mobile platforms as part of a deal with Japanese smartphone game maker KLab.
The mobile version of Age of Empires will reportedly come to iOS and Android by the end of Microsoft’s current fiscal year, which comes to the end of June.
Here is a statement from Microsoft to Polygon:
Today, KLab Inc. announced a licensing agreement with Microsoft Corp. to develop a mobile version of Microsoft Studio’s Age of Empires franchise, which will be initially developed in English for iOS and Android and launched globally, with plans to release the game in other languages and on Windows Phone in the future. Some reports included incorrect information about additional Xbox Live-based games on iOS and Android but there are no further announcements beyond Age of Empires at this time.
