Age of Empires 2 is quietly having an incredible year

Nearly 21 years after release, Age of Empires 2 could well be having its best year ever. Since its HD re-release in 2013 the game has had a steady growth in average player count, but with the release of Age of Empires 2: Definitive edition last year and COVID-19 lockdowns inflating player counts across the industry, Age of Empires 2 is boasting totals that beat some very big-name games.

It is a fun game, but also has quite a few shortcomings. Maybe it should be merged with Settlers.
