A not so sad ending after all. The game wasn’t completely dead and buried during its ten-year hiatus between Age of Empires III: Asian Dynasties and Age of Empires: Definitive Edition. There have been numerous entries: the now-dead Age of Empires online and the fastly-approaching-death Age of Empires: Castle Siege.
Microsoft announced through the in-game news feature that the service will be closing down on May 13th, 2019. Castle Siege was forged back during the peak of Clash of Clans and its many competitors. It is a decent RTS game, although not necessarily one that really deserves the Empires name. to all the Gamers who still love the game, I suggest you savor these last moments.
