Discussion about merging with Age of Empires II HD[edit]

I'm opening discussion on merging Age of Empires II HD into this article. Due to a lack of distinct information and there being very few changes between the HD and the original version. There are some reviews for an adequate reception section but there is nothing to write about development or design. I don't think a reception section is enough to warrant a separate article.

Yeah, there's really nothing different between the expansion pack and the actual game, and the Hd article really isn't an article. It would make total sense to just make a small section for it in the main article. Possibly put it in the Development or Sequel section? To me that's the only problem we're facing here: where are we going to merge it? Thatguytestw 19:11, 11 March 2015 (UTC)
Actually, now that I think about it, this is a FEATURED ARTICLE we're dealing with here. We'll/you'll need to be extremely careful to make sure that the new section looks featured-article worthy.

Merge it, HD article has no body as it is, and if we were to expand it, it would be a copy-past from the original version's article. --Soetermans. T / C 11:42, 1 April 2015 (UTC)
Okay, I understand that the two articles have been merged already, but I think now with the African Kingdoms DLC and more in the works, it would make more sense if AoE2:HD had it's own article. The two games are vastly different in the time they were released, who published them, the ecosystem (Steam), the reception, etc. --Waqqashanafi (talk) 04:58, 20 March 2016 (UTC)

Mac OS release date[edit]

According to an old Macworld article, the Mac OS version was in beta in 2001 and the porter's website says it hit final by November 1, 2001, so how could it have been released in 1999? -Logan (talk) 01:48, 29 April 2015 (UTC)

New redirect (for now) for the soon to be new expansion article[edit]

As new details and a tease was released for The African Kingdoms expansion, I decided to make a redirect of it to this article, as a redirect for now, until even more details are released so we can begin working on that article as a whole. The redirect is Age of Empires II: The African Kingdoms. As its slated for a fall release, we can expect to be able to work on this article sometime in the coming months. —Mythdon 20:16, 24 June 2015 (UTC)

Age of Empires II: The Age of KingsAge of Empires II – This game's common name, as invoked in the major sources, is not the subtitle (as used throughout this article) but Age of Empires 2 (or II). The official name can be listed in the lede, but otherwise, the game is best known by its shorter version. czar 07:00, 7 December 2015 (UTC)
