Microsoft's upcoming real-time strategy Age of Empires III: Definitive Edition has been rated over on Brazilian rating board, which could mean the official release date is closer than expected.
Microsoft have been working on remasters and HD editions for Age of Empires games over the last couple of years. Age of Empires and Age of Empires II already received a major makeover with fancy new visuals and the next game to receive this visual overhaul is the third instalment - Age of Empires III.
Earlier this year, Microsoft hosted a beta for the Definitive Edition of Age of Empires III in order to test the game for major bugs and performance issues. The publisher are yet to confirm when exactly they plan to release the game.
However, it looks like the release date is closer than expected. Over at the Brazilian rating board , a rating for Age of Empires III: Definitive Edition has appeared, which suggests that Microsoft could soon share new info about the release date. The rating only states that the game is rated 12+ and published by Microsoft. Other than that, the details are pretty scarce.
Since Microsoft plan to host a major Xbox Games Showcase event later this month, it is possible that Age of Empires III: Definitive Edition also appears during the show, hopefully with a release date. Of course, this is just speculation at the moment, since the publisher did not reveal what games we can expect to see at the event.
