    Hasbro confirmed during its investor conference earlier this week a sequel to Transformers: War for Cybertron is currently in development and is set for release sometime in 2012.

    Mark Blecher, SVP and General Manager of Digital Media & Gaming, said he was pleased with the response of the first title released earlier this year.

    "This is the most highly-rated, critical success of any game that's had the Hasbro brand yet and we're looking forward to a sequel in 2012," Blecher stated.

    It's expected San Diego-based High Moon Studios, the developer of the first game, is behind the sequel, though that information has not been confirmed.

    Blecher also said the Transformers: Dark of the Moon video game will be released in 2011 to coincide with the launch of the movie. Additionally, the Transformers MMO, in development by NetDragon, is planned for launch in the West but no specific territories were mentioned.

    Not had a chance to try the first game; but from what I hear it's very good.

    I went online with this last night on 360... 500 odd players. Compared to the 2.5 MILLION on COD. Damn

    Is there a Fall of Cybertron thread?
    Transformers: Fall of Cybertron transports you to the final days of the planet Cybertron where you will experience the darkest hours of the apocalyptic war between the Autobots and Decepticons. Embark on an adrenaline-fueled journey through a wide range of missions and massive environments designed around each character's unique abilities. With the stakes higher than ever before, you play as a variety of Transformers, including Grimlock's nearly indestructible T-Rex form and the legendary Combaticons forming into the colossal Bruticus.

    High Moon showed Optimus Prime as he appears in the sequel, to Game Informer.

    I shall go here to continue my discussion.

    This game... will be awesome. And it's been confirmed today that Matt Tieger, game lead on WFC, is also in charge of this. The core team wasn't responsible for that shitty Dark of the Moon tie in. Phew!

    Loving the new look Prime!

    I managed about two or three missions of the first game before passing out of boredom. It wasn't exactly bad, just really, really average. Maybe this'll be a bit more...exciting?

    Ah man that footage on Shack was epic, flamethrowers and transforming dinosaurs are always a win. Mechanical murder death kill with your teeth is ultra violence that would make Warren Spector giggle like a little boy. PC version is gonna be lovely.

    I wonder if I can get my little girl into Transformers so I can play with some toys again? Barbie just doesn't cut it without real bits :(

    PC version will use Steamworks, will receive all of the same DLC as consoles (the game will launch the same day on all platforms - in the US it's download only for PC users.)
    It will also feature:
    ‘no DRM’ beyond Steam’s own, “enhanced textures, lighting, and shadows” and proper keyboard and mouse controls.


    It's also been announced that there are no plans for it to use DirectX11, or include modding/custom map creation support. Source: RPS. Late next month is when it'll be here.

    Well that demo just brought the memories flooding back. The vehicles may still be a bit futuristic, but the new character models are awesome.

    My inner child is squealing and demanding it be the 24th.

    Multiplayer is exceptional, just like last WFC. 3 weeks to go :)

    Excellent demo, really enjoyed it.

    The first game was excellent, especially the multiplayer, so i'll definitely be picking this up.

    The only worry is that, because this is an Activision game, it will most likely be £45 at launch. :evil:

    Tried the demo last night, just more of the same really. Which is no bad thing really. Wish they'd worked on making it feel a bit more weighty though.

    Ah man that's a big pile of poo I don't spend more than a tenner on Steamworks DRM games (been on the receiving end of Steams offline mode spaz outs before the steamboys start).

    Oh well guess it's a sale game now, gutted I was so happy PC was getting it to. Oh well got enough to get on with until it hits the acceptable DRM infected pricing range I guess.

    Yes, I may have just pre-ordered at GAME's extortionate price so I can have the proper Optimus Prime and Megatron.

    What of it.

    I'm not a Transformers fan as such but that was great fun, the single player especially seemed to have a surprising amount of polish to it.

    Multiplayer also seemed great though a little laggy from the quick go I had.

    With so many identikit shooters around it was great to play something a little different.

    Besides I may be 30 but I'll never grow tired of shooting someone with a giant robot before changing into a tank to finish them off!

    Just had to cancel my preorder sadly. The game looks amazing and as a huge transformers fan I have been looking forward to its fire ages. But the demo has highlighted something that means I cannot play the game... The inability to invert both X and Y axis on the control system.

    I really struggle to play 3rd person games that don't let me invert both axis. Because of this I will have to take a miss on this game. Which is a real shame as I really wanted to enjoy the game.

    You have to ask why the devs can't include an option to invert both axis in a game.
