Even though, Ensemble Studios is no more, players like Fatih Yuzbasioglu and his team, are working on mods to keep the game alive.
Producer of the Ottoman Empire Realism Mod, which is the 5th best indie mod for Empire: Total War is also working on Age of Empires 3. The team says that, The Ottoman Empire will have many unique designs in the game and there may be even a special scenario for players who want to play as the Ottoman Empire. He also provided us, Oyun Fest, with a special screenshot to show how the process is going. The release date is not yet announced, though, the many things in the game, including naval army to workers to GUI, will be changed.
We as Oyun Fest are backing him up on this project and ask all the players, who still want to see Age of Empires saga to stay in action, to spread this news and help them in their course.
