Title: Hasbro Seeks to Revive Classic Transformers Video Games, Eyes Potential Return for Popular Titles
In exciting news for video game and Transformers enthusiasts, Hasbro has expressed its desire to see the return of older video games based on the iconic franchise. The toy and entertainment company hopes to breathe new life into beloved titles that thrilled fans in the past.
From 2006 to 2017, Activision held the publishing rights for Transformers games, captivating gamers with thrilling gameplay and captivating storylines. Some of the notable titles included War for Cybertron and Fall of Cybertron, which are now being considered for potential re-releases due to their enduring popularity.
However, the journey for these games has not been without its challenges. Activision’s last Transformers installment, Devastation, developed by PlatinumGames, was released in 2015. Unfortunately, all of these games were withdrawn from sale in 2017 after the licensing agreement between Activision and Hasbro expired.
Hasbro has indicated that these cherished Transformers games were inadvertently lost amid Activision’s various mergers and acquisitions over the years. Despite this setback, Hasbro managed to retrieve some assets for Fall of Cybertron and certain elements of War for Cybertron from old game files, showcasing their commitment to preserving these fan-favorite experiences.
There may be light at the end of the tunnel for fans eagerly awaiting the return of these classic Transformers games. Hasbro hopes that if Microsoft’s acquisition of Activision goes through, the tech giant might bring the treasured titles to its popular gaming subscription service, Game Pass. This potential collaboration could breathe new life into these timeless adventures, allowing a new generation of players to join the battle.
Looking forward, Hasbro is open to partnering with any video game company that presents innovative ideas for future Transformers games. Eager to continue expanding the franchise’s gaming universe, the company is currently collaborating with Splash Damage to develop Transformers: Reactivate, an exciting co-op action game that promises to deliver thrilling gameplay experiences.
As Transformers fans eagerly await the return of the beloved games that shaped their childhoods, Hasbro’s dedication to preserving these experiences is truly commendable. Stay tuned for further updates on the potential revival of these iconic video games and the exciting future of the Transformers gaming universe.
