Westlake Behind Port of Age of Empires 2
6:00 AM | Ben Boffey | Comment on this story
Westlake Interactive have updated their site with the announcement that they are in the process of porting Age Of Empires 2 for Peter Tamte's new company Destineer. With Westlake's years of experience and the game's status as "First Playable," yesterday's press release slating AoE2 for a Fall release seems to be extremely plausible. Here's the blurb from Westlake:
Westlake proudly announces a new project we've been working on for a while- Age of Empires II.This leaves no unannounced projects for Westlake, although we're sure something mysterious will crop up again after MWNY.
Destineer Announces Fall Release for AOE2, Links 2002
Age of Empires II is the sequel to the award-winning, best-selling real-time strategy game Age of Empires. Age of Empires II spans a thousand years, from the Dark Ages to the late medieval period, in which players control the destiny of humankind from the fall of Rome through the Middle Ages.
Age of Empires II will be published for the Mac by Bold, a division of Destineer Studios. Age II was previously listed on our project status page as the "unnamed" project.
