    Kotaku is reporting an interview with Activision producer Jason Ades, in which he says there's just not enough demand for a G1 game out there.
    Kotaku - Not Enough People Want A G1 Transformers Game1 - Tranformers: Revenge of the Fallen


    Quoting the article By Mike Fahey:
    I for one hope they're wrong, and that the Ghostbusters game changes their opinions of things. -Maybe even bringing back some other classic cartoons/franchises in video game form?

    -Methusalen out.

    I guess their "High Moon" studio is working on a Transformers game, but as far as I know, there hasn't been any other info released about their game yet...

    Bummer, although I'm not too surprised. If they did a game involving/borrowing from multiple series, there would be something for everyone. That would be one huge game, however, so that's unlikely. We're getting Movie games for the time being, ah well. At least there's Easter eggs in them and all those other goodies.

    Who cares about G1 when the Movieverse is all the hype?

    I'd much rather they just have a Transformers Universe game that was kind of an All-Stars of cast. Story wise just throw in time travel/dimension hopping and job done

    I care. And I like both Universes. How would you like it if I said who cares about Animated?

    I'd buy one :thumb 

    Especially if it was a SF2/MVC2 clone by Capcom, oh yes. My fucking head would explode.

    I realise I do have quite individual tastes though. Or perhaps not.

    How do they know if there's a demand for something that isn't made? Kinda reminds me of the problems Douglas Adams had getting a Hitchhikers movie made: producers kept telling him there was no demand for a comedy sci-fi movie, 'cos if there was, someone would have done it already. Then someone makes Men In Black and it's a massive hit. No one wants to take a chance when they could be churning out another FPS with a grizzled space marine.

    The original fans of G1 aren't the target audience for current game designers. I was there for G1 all those years ago, and honestly, a G1-based game doesn't interest me in the least. Having G1 references in modern games like TFTM and RotF is good enough for me. I was stoked when I unlocked G1 Megatron and Starscream's original colors.

    Having a Universe game would be interesting, but then it'd probably end up being a Mortal Kombat type of thing.

    I don't care what generation of Transformers you put in a game, the most important thing is that it needs to be a good game.

    I still have nightmares about Transformers Tatakai.

    So...If there's already another transformers game being made after the revenge of the fallen one, and its not to do with G1, The Movieverse or Most likely Animated(since it has a game and the shows been canceled) which series is this game going to be set in? Or will it be a new story line with create your own characters...

    Man are you SORE from Animated being canned. What's it been, a couple months and STILL?


    As for this, I'm not all that surprised. 'sides, TF games haven't really ever been that grand. The Armada one was pretty good, but there's just so much other shovelware the casual crowd would rather buy, and decent original IP's the hardcore players would rather drop $60 on.
