When we talk about strategy games, Age of Empires is probably the name that comes up the most. However, this historical strategy game had a very successful spin-off that the players also loved. Age of Mythology was a game in the Age of Empires series which took its inspiration from Greek, Norse, and Egyptian mythology. It was similar to Age of Empires in gameplay but followed mythos and not historical events. The game had a huge player base and was a massive triumph for Microsoft. However, even with such success, we haven’t seen another game based on the spin-off. However, a couple of industry insiders are teasing players about a new installment in the series.
Accredited industry insiders, Jeff Grubb and Jez Corden, recently teased the return of Age of Mythology in a series of cryptic tweets. Jez initially tweeted that Age of Mythology was a “pretty cool” game. Afterward, in a reply to someone saying that we need a new one, Jez said, “that it would be pretty cool”, with a lot of periods, hinting that he probably knows something about the game’s revival.
that would be pretty cool………..

Later, Jeff Grubb also joined in, retweeting Jez’s original tweet, saying that the game “could be cool again.” This, again, tells us that a return of Age of Mythology may be imminent. However, this could just be nothing but two people having fun. However, the tweets do seem to point towards a revival of the real-time strategy video game from 2002.

Developers of the game are also interested in making a new installment to the franchise. In 2019, one of the developers behind Age of Mythology said to Gamerheadquarters in a statement that “they want to, and it makes logical sense”, but “but that decision has to come from Microsoft“. This, of course, is no confirmation but it’s reassuring to know that, at least, the developers do want to revive the franchise.
Considering the game’s mega-success, greenlighting this project wouldn’t be a big headache for Microsoft. Therefore, it is very possible that Microsoft gave their go-ahead and the revival has been in the development since. Still, all of this is speculation as of now, so do take this with a grain of salt. While some evidence does line up, nothing is certain as of yet.
