Activision teases new E3 announcement

Cynamite writes "Today a mysterious postcard from Activision reached our office. This could possibly be a new E3 announcement for a new sci-fi-game."


As it seems the teased announcement has something to do with Transformers: War for Cybertron.

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.
