Even though a brand new Age of Empires game was announced over E3 2021, that doesn’t mean that its developer, World’s Edge Studios, isn’t still looking for help. The studio recently posted an offer for a Senior Game Designer on Microsoft’s official career website, if the World’s Edge Studios job opening appeals to people.
Age of Empires is one of the most well-known game son PC ever since the first game came out in 1997, allowing players to take on the role of a leader of one of history’s great civilizations in a series of scenarios. Age of Empires 4, which will be releasing on October 28 of this year, is the most recent entry.
The job opening requires 4 years of game design experience in a senior, lead, or directorial position, along with excellent communication skills and general experience in what they will be working on in their position on the Age of Empires team.
The World’s Edge Studios job opening is likely intended to help the game get that last bit of work in before its release date, since October is only three months away at this point (technically four since October 28 is near the end), but there’s also no telling what other things might be in mind for the game, both in terms of expansion and otherwise.
The game offers the English, Chinese, Mongols, Dehli Sultanate, French, Abbasid Caliphate, Holy Roman Empire, and Rus as starting civilizations, but there’s also a possibility that more might come in the future. The last mainline Age of Empires game, Age of Empires 3, for instance, eventually added three Native American tribe factions and three Asian civilizations to its roster via expansions.
