An Age of Empires 3: Definitive Edition shadow drop may be happening soon.

It looks like we may be playing Age of Empires 3: Definitive Edition sooner rather than later, if we’re interpreting this new teaser correctly. The official Age of Empires Twitter account recently posted a cryptic image showing some unit cards.

Though it may not look like much, fans figured out that the hotkey for each unit combine to spell out the word ‘gamescom’. This is a strong indication that the game is being released this week, or at the very least, gamescom will bring us a solid release date.

Age of Empires 3: Definitive Edition has been in various forms of limited, closed beta tests for months. The game was rated in Australia just last month, indicating an impending release.

This year’s gamesom is going to be a digital-only event, so the Tweet is very likely referring to Geoff Keighley’s Opening Night Live, scheduled for this Thursday.
