Microsoft Studios: Please Continue to Support Age of Empires Online

Millions of gamers worldwide have enjoyed the Age of Empires RTS games for more then a decade. All of the games have scored high ratings/reviews and have sold very well (the AoE franchise has sold 20 million copies as of 2009 and was estimated to be worth $500 million). 

However, with the closure of Games for Windows Live, Age of Empires Online will no longer be supported and will be removed from the Steam Store. Many fans and players have expressed their fondness to Age of Empires Online and have expressed that they would love to see Age of Empires online to be supported and to be detatched from the GFWL servers.

I ask that Microsoft Studios show the millions of Age of Empires fans that Microsoft still listens and cares about the fan community by keeping Age of Empires Online alive!

Microsoft Game Studios
Microsoft Studios: Please Continue to Support Age of Empires Online. There is a large fanbase that already purchased and loves AOE:Online. Please show these fans that you, Microsoft Studios, still listen to the fanbase by supporting Age of Empires: Online!

      But anyone know how to send this off to Microsoft HQ? I have put their info in the petition, but I do not think that it is sending it to them... :( I feel discouraged that even though we have 1k, they might not be seeing it. Anyone have experience with's petition process? Please message me or reply!

      cause it is the only technically evoled sequel (graphics..gameplay..interface) since the last release of the game (age of empires iii) about 6 years...and how is it possible to shut down "age online" since age of empires is still a selling title with the HD REMASTERD VERSIONS of age ii+iii+mythology in steam...???

      at least if it is a money issue i personally and lot of others i think we could pay a monthly subscription...bottom line...LET "STEAM" host servers for the game...

      I paid for extra content for this game, enjoyed it, my suggestion is to make it free, open source and let the community manage the game

      It was in my opinion the best Age of Empires game ever (even better then II) and i spent over 500 hours into this game in only the release version.
