In addition, ''VideoGame/StarWarsGalacticBattlegrounds'' is ''Age of Empires'' [[RecycledINSPACE IN SPACE]] ([=LucasArts=] used the AOE II engine) and Ensemble developed an RTS based on the ''Franchise/{{Halo}}'' series, ''VideoGame/HaloWars'', which was Ensemble Studios' swan song, as Microsoft closed them down on 1/29/09, making ''Age of Empires 4'' or ''5'' unlikely. There was also a spiritual successor in the form of ''VideoGame/EmpireEarth'', which was developed by the very same creator of ''Age of Empires'' and released on November 23, 2001.

* AnachronismStew: In most of every game's campaign scenarios, certain liberties are taken with the depiction of cultural groups due to the limits of the preset civilizations in-game.
