AoE Online Content Development Ceasing

The Age of Empires Online Blog announces that Ensemble is ceasing the development of new content for the multiplayer RTS game, though there is a small amount of new stuff still in the pipeline that they will complete before shutting off the tap. They stress that nothing else is changing, and that the game will continue to operate as before, and will be fully supported. They explain the reason for the change in a brief FAQ: "Because creating top-tier content, as we have been for the last year and a half, is very expensive—too expensive to maintain for long, as it turns out. We can no longer afford to keep creating it. AOEO already has a very large amount of high-quality, hand-crafted entertainment, and adding more is no longer cost-effective." Thanks Massively.
