Age of Empires: Definitive Edition - Release kurz vor eigentlichem Termin verschoben


Das Remake von Age of Empires I wurde von mehr als nur einigen Spielern sehnsüchtig erwartet und stand auch schon kruz vor der lang ersehnten Veröffentlichung. Nun hat der Entwickler das Spiel kurz vor Release verschoben. Jedoch nicht nur um ein paar Tage, sondern ins Frühjahr 2018. Als kleiner Trost sollen dafür nun umso mehr Spieler in die Beta eingeladen werden. Wahrscheinlich nicht zuletzt um ein detailliertes Feedback zum aktuellen Stand zu bekommen. Das offizielle Statement wurde auf ihrer Homepage bekannt gegeben:

Hi all,

When we set out to re-release the original Age of Empires (as ‘Age of Empires: Definitive Edition’), we had many debates over the extent of restoration that we should undertake. The challenge of re-releasing a classic is just that: it’s a classic and it deserves to be treated with careful reverence. At the same time, in a living, thriving genre, norms continually evolve, technology advances, and player expectations change. This is as true for RTS as for any other genre. So, the challenge is to recreate the experience not as it *actually* was but as we all remember it. How can we modernize the game while preserving the fun, discovery and magic of that first experience?

To that end, rather than a final release of Age of Empires: Definitive Edition on October 19, we will instead be inviting thousands more players from the community into our closed beta between now and launch to allow for more in-depth testing across single player campaign, multiplayer balance, fine-tuning the lobby, etc.

We don’t have a final release date to share quite yet, but are targeting early 2018. In the meantime, we will be actively engaging with everyone participating in the closed beta to gather additional feedback, set up multiplayer sessions, and ensure that the Age of Empires: Definitive Edition that we are delivering is the Definitive Edition that you want.

Thank you,

The Age of Empires: Definitive Edition Team

(Update 10/16/2017) Please note that the Windows Store page for Age of Empires: Definitive Edition is currently listing the planned release date as 12/31/2018. This is a placeholder, and does not reflect our target release date. We will update that page once the final release date has been announced.
