Ensemble may be cranking out Halo Wars while the carvers put the finishing touches on its tombstone, but the developer’s most-beloved RTS franchise isn’t going anywhere.

“Microsoft continues to own Age of Empires,” Xbox boss Shane Kim told Edge.

“It is not losing Age of Empires itself. We’re still super excited for the potential for the franchise. The Windows gaming world continues to evolve, and we believe in the future of that property.”

He also reaffirmed Microsoft’s support for the PC platform with a hearty “absolutely” and a promise of more first-party titles to come.
