Hasbro, Inc. has announced today that it has signed a strategic development agreement with Jagex Limited to jointly create a new online game based on the globally iconic Transformers brand.
oh wow, this could be interesting...
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
Its Jagex, The guys from runescape.
I hope its not like Runescape, at all...
The massive amounts of customization should be huge since they are transformers.
I always wanted to make and custimize my own transformer.
Interesting... Tell me more.
Cool hopefully all the bots will not sound like xzibit
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.
sounds amazing. defo up for it.
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.
the day Micheal Bay got his mitts on it. *Pops in the VHS tape of Transformers the movie circa 89'*
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.
- 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.
