While the tech giant has released a few mobile games for iOS and Android like Wordament, "Age of Empires" is its most popular game to date to be offered beyond its own consoles.

A KLab spokesperson said, they will develop a mobile version of "Age of Empires" which will be released before the end of March.

The historical strategy game will be released worldwide in English for iPhones and Android-based phones, "with plans to release the game in other languages and on a Windows Phone in the future," a Microsoft spokesperson said.
