According to Reuters, Microsoft signed a partnership with Klab, a development studio to bring certain video games to a mobile platform. Where the information surprises is that the Microsoft strategy game age of empires would be soon offered on Android and iPhone.. but no information about Windows 8 or Windows Phone!
It would be quite incredible if Microsoft preferred to release an Age of Empire 2013 on competing smartphones and avoid any success on computers and tablets. In any case, this is good news for fans of the AoE game and who own an iPhone or Android.
Age of Empires would be an F2P (free-to-play) based on the series, pending other games to follow.
