Bill Gates, one of the world's richest individuals, Microsoft veteran and currently the co-chairman of Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, has been involved in philanthropy for some time now. Gates agreed to have his fourth Reddit AMA session, which allows Reddit users to ask anything under the sun to the world's most powerful business magnate.

But the "top question" in the Reddit AMA session was about the "Age of Empires" and fans asked him if they could have another "Age of Empires" edition.

"I will look into this. How many empires do you need?" Gates replied jokingly, as he is not in charge of day-to-day activities at Microsoft. 

The "Age of Empires," published by Microsoft, was one of the popular PC strategy video games after its first release in 1997. Following the first "Age of Empires," its developers, Ensemble Studios, came out with a sequel, "Age of Empires II: The Age of Kings," and then there was "Age of Empires III." There was also a free-to-play online game, "Age of Empires Online."

The "Age of Empires" series sold over 20 million units, according to the official website of the developers.

The game also had spin-off games known as "Age of Mythology" that was set in the same time period but concentrated on the mythology aspect.

Apart from the "Age of Empires," the full Reddit AMA session with Gates is a good read as he shared his Harvard memories, his opinion on the recent Apple vs. FBI Case, regulation of Artificial Intelligence and much more.
