Age of Empires is coming to Xbox consoles in 2023 in a big way, with the announcement coming as part of an anniversary stream. Age of Empires II: Definitive Edition is coming to Xbox on January 31, 2023, and Age of Empires IV is coming later in the year.
With both also set to arrive as a part of Xbox Game Pass and Xbox Cloud Gaming.
Age of Empires II: Definitive Edition is one of the most beloved strategy games ever made and coming soon for the first time on Xbox and Xbox Game Pass, featuring brand new mechanics optimized for controller for both new and seasoned players alike. Enjoy 200+ hours of historical campaign gameplay, 1,000 years of human history and 35 civilizations from the comfort of your living room.
As per above the games are being optimised for controller, though keyboard and mouse support will be there too. In terms of controller input, Emma Bridle, Director of Customer Voice, World’s Edge, notes that bringing the classic RTS to Xbox was "a massive task and one we had to approach carefully and thoughtfully". With that, new tutorials are designed specifically for controllers, and new in-game AI to support resource management will be there. No doubt these additions should make their way to Age of Empires IV too.
