Jagex reveals online Transformers game


Jagex, maker of extremely popular browser MMO RuneScape, is making a Transformers game.

Hasbro has given the nod, and Jagex hopes to release an online Transformers world in 2012.

Talkative Jagex CEO Mark Gerhard said there was "huge appetite" for a Transformers online game, and that his concoction of "dynamic" and "action-packed" gameplay will be "irresistible".

Last summer, Jagex told Eurogamer there was a third MMO in development besides upcoming sci-fi bonanza Stellar Dawn and RuneScape. Transformers, we presume, was it.

Through RuneScape (and casual portal FunOrb), Jagex does serious business - employing 450 people and describing itself as a "serious competitor" to Blizzard and World of Warcraft. RuneScape, a free-to-play MMO, has over 10 million active accounts and 140 million registered accounts.

This is RuneScape.
