Microsoft announced it has acquired Dallas-based Ensemble Studios, developer of the "Age of Empires" series of PC strategy games published by Microsoft. The move is another sign of the software giant's growing interest in creating the games it sells, following recent acquisitions of Access Software, creator of "Links" golf games, and Bungie Software.
