Has anyone looked at the video release in detail for clues about AOE4?

There really aren't too many. Graphically it was just shots and art from previous games from the main Age of Empires line, the only hint we seem to be left with is the quote: „Now a new age is upon us" at the end, which can somewhat direct to post-AoE3 historical era, meaning more modern times on which the game could probably be based.

Imo, the biggest hint was in the event itself. All the guests were AoE2 casters - sure screams medieval era to me.

I've heard a couple people cite that as evidence, but I'm pretty sure Microsoft used that line because it's a play on words, not because AoE4 is going to take place in an era after than of 3.

That's just because they had a LAN event hosted at Gamescom, and at the same time AoE2 remains the main game of the franchise — do you think they would invite someone from the AoE3 or even AoM community?

I think its valid to think that was a play on words. A new age is upon is meaning a new age of empires and a new age in this series.

Well, Microsoft uses to product to push some of their actual agenda (windows store, windows 10 haha). But yeah, I do think almost any company would go for medieval.
