Indeed.

I am cautiously optomistic at this time, will wait to see what they come up with. Makes sense as a concept at least

It better be based on cybertron

The massive amounts of customization should be huge since they are transformers.

I just discovered something I didn't even realize I wanted.

A Transformers MMO never even crossed my mind, but now, I can't wait to try it out. It's being made by Jagex, it's in good hands.

PS: I hope it's G1 and not the crappy movie versions. At least maybe mix it up and let people choose the type. Hell include the Beast Wars versions for all I care, so long as G1 is available to me.

i feel ya with the G1 tranformers but hopefully the customization will let you mix and match. i.e megatron transforming into a pistol but if you have 2 characters on the go maybe have the other as him as a tank or something.

just my transformer brain going off on one.

oh no... this is TERRIBLE news!!! my life will be over :/

I didn't see "Activision" listed anywhere in that announcement, so maybe, just maybe, this game won't suck ass.

I'm not a huge MMO fan, but DCUO has me hooked, and a Transformers MMO could actually be really cool, especially if you get to design your own Autobot/Decepticon/Insecticon/ Dinobot, etc.

I'll definitely keep an eye on this, hope they're able to pull it off.

Wow what a complete waste of time and money. Now you will see why studios get shut down.

I love the Transformers and I'm talking G1 ya know back when Megatron was a gun and the Original Transformers cartoon movie where my man Optimus Prime died but I just don't see this MMO working.

A Smurfs MMO now that would work!!

if they have a COH level of customisation or more I'm sold!

with transformers you need the customisation and combat and your set

Take your time and make the best mmo you can. Please dont screw this up like that final fantasy mmo. Good greif, you have robots for god sakes. Robots are like the best thing for a video game.

Can't wait to relive my childhood in making a Transformer that turns into a Fridge.

Along with an army of toasters and 23 microwaves. Wait, now I sound fat...

It is going to be a wait and see. You never know, they might pull it off. But then again.................

Let's hope its Generation 1 and has Simon Furman heavily involved.
