As it seems the teased announcement has something to do with Transformers: War for Cybertron.
sounds interesting =)
Looks like it could be Activision's response to Dead Space, honestly. Rough translation of the back of the card: "Monday, NASA, during a routine measurement with the mega-telescope "Kepler" accidentally discovered a hitherto unknown planet. The following studies on yet-unnamed star brought amazing results. While NASA says it were not for the anticipated Earth-like habitat, but were extraordinary display paranormal activities identified. Also, the researchers could make up a strikingly high proportion of iron on the surface of the planet." Edit: Okay, after further investigating it might be the new Transformers game, but why they are talking about it from a human finding perspective is beyond my understanding since one of the main elements of the new game is the complete lack of Earth involvement/reference. That and the mention of paranormal activity. But, with the game being released on 6/22/2010 and the numbers on the back starting with 0.022.6, it's a possibility.
They never actually said there was no earth involvement did they? Just that it was based off of G1, which implies that there's no earth involvement. Maybe they have an "earth discovers cybertron" sequence to set up a sequel. I don't know.
Yeah, they did say it. In the initial interviews on the setting, it was a major focus that removing any human element allows them the freedom to make the game they want and not have to worry about dealing with human technology. This is completely set on Cybertron at the start of the war between the autobots and decepticons. Also, if it at all follows any of the canon material, war on Cybertron wages on for thousands of years once started... It is highly unlikely that they will try to involve human involvement even in a sequel when it throws a huge dynamic into the mix that interferes with canon and with gameplay options that reflect storyline options.
I know it's not supposed to have any, but this makes it look like there will be; which makes me sad. Maybe they're just using the whole "We discovered this unknown planet" thing to tease it. If they mess this up I might kill someone. They were on Cybertron for a few million years after the war started. The game takes place at the beginning of the war right? I mean, there aren't any huge, known events that take place so realistically, they could compress those millions of years into one game. I wouldn't expect them to have multiple games exclusively on cybertron. Plus, this wouldn't mean that there was human interaction, just the discovery of cybertron with a big-ass telescope. This would make sense given the existence of a government agency(Sector 7) devoted to studying/finding the transformers in the movies.
I am betting this lies in regards to Space Warfare or Future Warfare trademarks they have bought.
It's a space station!
Call of Duty: Modern Starwar
Damn you took my post lol.
I honestly couldn't give a shit about their games anymore.
You might not but a horde of console gamers will. Wait and watch.
The Death Star...?
call of duty gears of halo EDIT i didnt see neotoms post but you can just see it now they will milk COD even more did it ever get decided who owned the modern warfare name acti or westpella
Bungie's new IP?
I was thinking the same thing. Becuase Bungie had said that there has been a seperate small dev team working on their new IP, while the rest of the team focuses on finishing Halo Reach. Plus, with them signing onto Activision, and Bungie, who are very good at viral and marketing campaigns, makes sense that Activision would follow suit and help them with their viral marketing as well. Plus, if you look at one of the trademarks Bungie filed for, over a month ago, the trademark was for "Aerospace" (with the other being "Marathon"), and seeing how this has to do a lot with space....but thats just my 2 cents. EDIT: Yea, kinda just found out that its Transformers...pfft, I tried. (DAMN!)
Isnt that Cybertron... you know where war for cybertron is happening?
It just looks like Cybertron to me. I actually think that's what it is. It's a transformers postcard. I don't know why they would send a Transformers postcard as the game is already announced, official, and expected. But that's Cybertron.
NO ONE CARES WHAT THEY HAVE COMING UP
Oh the hatred lmao if you don't like them don't buy their games but realise that there are still a lot of people who do wanna play their upcoming releases despite they have done and despite what you may think
Call of Duty Cyberwarfare deluxe ... *narf
its transformers war for cybertron http://media.photobucket.co...
Activision? who cares ! move along guys :)
In before the boycott! O wait.. lets boycott it! Sad as it sounds, the game would have to be really really really really good for me to even consider buying it and if I do..i'll get it second hand.
They'll somehow make it related to guns. They'll over-price it on PC, raise the price in the UK, say "Mwaha! we'd charge more if we could", not do a beta, give us a broken multiplayer, a 6 hour campaign, the same graphics as 4 years ago, and give us rehashed maps for 1/4 of the price of the game. The fans will respond by buying 10 million copies and saying "OMGZZZZ itz tha greatest game EVAZZZZZ!!!!"
what? Activision can do new game? NO WAY!
"We at Activision are pleased to see so many idiots flocking to buy our over priced, under contented DLC that going forward we have decided that all of our DLC will be over priced and under contented. We have also decided to go back and re-charge you an additional charge for all previous DLC you may have already purchased. We feel you are a very stoopid consumer and will pretty much fall for anything at this point. We are also changing our slogan to " We are so Rich because you are so Damn Dumb". Thank you from your friends at Activision, have a nice day :) "
