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!
