A hidden announcement in the midst of all the E3 wonder comes from Ryan Chaply who is the producer for Age of Empires II HD Edition and Age of Mythology. Talking in an interview, he’s made mention of new content for both of these series.

Presenting to the public exclusively during E3, Chaply revealed that due to fan demands for some extra content, Age of Mythology Extended Edition will be receiving even more content to tide fans over. Teasing the new content with a photo behind him shown below; there are some hints on who is coming and what civilization is on its way.

    I made that NeoGAF thread, but there are also theories that the gods could all be Chinese, which from left to right would be Shennong, then possibly Yellow Emperor (or Jade Emperor), and lastly Nuwa.
