Age of Empires and More Old Microsoft Games Coming to iOS and Android?

By Gary Cutlack on at

Microsoft's legendary strategy classic Age of Empires could be about to make an official appearance on mobile, with tech sources claiming Microsoft has done a deal to bring it, and other games from the MS stable, to iOS and alternative smartphone formats later this year.

The news, which comes via a Reuters report, says Age of Empires will be a free-to-pay title, which means it may come accompanied by a stash of adverts and/or micro-transactions. Or perhaps, to kick-start its cross-platform gaming ambitions, it'll be a freebie to get us all hooked? [Reuters via Droid-Gamers]
