What would it be? Age of Empires or Halo Wars?

“Microsoft Studios is looking for a highly experienced senior games developer to help build and lead the team for a new AAA title within an established and well-loved strategy game franchise.”

Though there’s no indication of what system it would come out for, when it would come out, or who, specifically, is developing it, job listings from Microsoft would seem to indicate that a new entry in an established strategy franchise is under development in Redmond, Washington. Speculations seems to point towards Age of Empires, but Halo Wars also remains a distinct possibility, and even both of those may end up being wrong.

A new MechCommander would be sweet. :P

But most likely a new Age of Empires or Halo Wars. The original plan was for Halo Wars to be a trilogy, so maybe MS if going forward with that idea or maybe a new Halo Wars in the Reclaimer "Saga".

I loved the Limited Edition of Halo Wars.
