    WFC/FOC is the basic story of them leaving Cybertron that is used for all continuities. Much like how all Batman continuties share the death of his parents as his origin. This is not tied to Prime in any other way. It's not possible. Example: the whole Dark Energon issue and how Optimus became a Prime.

    Except for the fact that Matt Tieger and Aaron Archer both specifically said it was part of Aligned, along with Prime.

    And poorly at that.

    You can't just ignore the fact that he went by Optimus for a huge part of the game.

    Sloppy.

    They might try something that reeks of lazyness to explain this, like he was at first Orion Pax, then changed his name to Optimus for (insert reason here).

    Or, because he has a new body, Teletraan thought he was some other guy named Orion Pax who looked a lot like him (plot twist: Orion Pax is in fact the original name of FoC ULTRA MAGNUS. Yes, this makes no sense if the WfC continuity is the same as Prime continuity, but that was already established when Megatron had to go find Dark Energon without Starscream, despite in WfC Starscream claiming he knows how to make the stuff)

    You know, actually, they keep calling this game a 'spiritual successor' and not a true sequel. Could it be that FOC is actually a reinvention of WFC that uses most of the same characters and concepts, but is redesigned to fit the new Aligned universe better? Which would leave WFC as a 'standalone' that works as the G1 prequel it was initially intended to be.

    Or maybe I'm just a dumbass saying dumb things

    I don't know I just see it as how all the Batman movies and shows have the same origin of the murder of his parents as the basis. Heck Tieger at E3 said the game can fit in any universe since it's the origin story that will be used for every continuity.

    Yeah, I'm gonna stick with the notion that WFC+FOC is simply the definite story of the Great War for all continuities now, I was just throwing out a different idea for discussion's sake.
