Microsoft will Release iOS, Android Version of 'Age of Empires'

Microsoft has signed a licensing deal with Klab to bring its games for Apple's iOS and other smartphones. The operating system used for this collaboration is Google's Android. Microsoft actually brings its very famous game "Age of Empires" to be played on iPhone and other smartphones under this agreement. This game will be available free of cost to play worldwide on smartphones before the end of March, 2014.

Klab Inc. is a Japanese smartphone game maker whose shares see an 18% rise in Tokyo trade on Tuesday due to increased number of buy orders. Microsoft Corp. has to see a push back in gaming business due to extreme usage of mobile devices to play games. Microsoft basically depends upon Xbox for its gaming business. But trends are now changed as more people love to play games on their smartphones rather than on conventional consoles.

This might be the reason that Microsoft is releasing a mobile version of its games for Apple and Android smartphones. Yet now, the current agreement between Microsoft and Klab is for the development of "Age of Empires" mobile version. This agreement is not extended for other Xbox and PC games. Microsoft spokesperson told Reuters that this popular game will be released in English for iPhones and Andriod smartphones all over the world. Both companies are also planning to launch its versions for Windows Phone and other languages.
