Although Matthew's gospel does not specifically mention Jesus' ascension (that is, His departure from earth) following His resurrection, I would say that the idea being expressed by Jesus' reference to "the end of the age" in the cited verse refers to the time of His return in glory.
28:20 until the end of the age Marked by Jesus’ second coming. Even unto the end of the world.—Literally, of the age. Compare the same prepositional phrase in Matthew 13:39-40; Matthew 13:49; Matthew 24:13. In Hebrews 9:26 it is used of the time of the appearance of Christ in the flesh, as the beginning of the last age of the world.
