    So after seeing someone's full playthrough, it's obvious that there's enough questions to be answered in a third game, but dang, was that a cliff hanger. So to recap for all those who've seen it

    *
    Sludge is Dead or MIA, as he was not found in the level (Might have skipped through this.
    *
    Grimlock is Dead or he's MIA as well, as after destabilizing the space bridge, he's never seen again.
    *
    Bumblebee is mortally wounded, he's been shot in the chest by a rocket from megatron, and he's basically dead. We have no idea what's going on.
    *
    And to top it off, The Ark and Nemesis are sucked through the space bridge,not seen again. Literally, I can see why they did this (3rd Game), but, It cheapens everything.

    So that's that. Spoilers are there, you've been warned by the title AND the tags, so if you didn't want em, don't whine. Just..... Can anyone else make sense of this?

    They better have already thought of a basic third game plot.

    I know Prime is in the aligned continuity, but the gap the game leaves is just TOO vague to bridge. Yes, Hasbro has established a link between series, but the end just leaves too many questions.

    I'm kinda worried they won't say what happens via a third game, because I remember Matt Tieg said it's
    up to the player to decide what happens.
    But they NEED a third game regardless.
    Another reason I'm worried they won't is because they want it to be a base to all series, so they might not want to establish it as their own continuity because a third game showing
    how they get to Earth
    might open some HUGE plotholes that break off the possibility of being connected to certain continuities.
    Unless all they show is them
    going from planet to planet like Tieg also said ("Do they go from planet to planet? Or do they go straight to Earth? It's up to the player to decide).

    It's a longshot, but I hope we have a story add on dlc like Arkham City did. Too many questions were left unanswered.

    I'm kinda glad
    BumbleBee is dead
    ... not that i dislike him or anything, it's just that almost all the big named characters like Optimus, Prowl, Jazz, Starscream, IronHide, Soundwave, Megatron etc. have all died in some continuity
    but not Bee
    (as far as i know).

    As far as Grimlock & Sludge,
    I really hope there just MIA not dead... it's way to soon for any Dinobot funeral. Besides, I luv Sludge.

    Or you could just watch the 1980s cartoon. That is what Tieger said the ending was designed to be followed with.

    If I remember correctly,
    Optimus and Megatron were not on the outside of the ark Fighting before entering a space bridge. The game ends with them hanging on for dear life, then, poof, through the space bridge, never to be seen again.

    A third game is needed and will be wanted. The ending, was a bit of a let down, the lead up to it was amazing but that last 30 seconds, we want to see what happens next.
    And those who are left on Cybertron still have to meet up with the others.

    Well, no. But the set up is there. All the main Decepticons on the Ark fighting the Autobots, with both it and the Nemesis crashing. It's pretty well a more updated version of the same event.

    Fair enough, but to be honest, everyone who plays this game will want another after it. The ending really was just a let down.

    I think he did skip a portion of the story--I don't know how--but I remember their being a bit more to that room in the IGN video introducing the Dinobots. I think it was Slag or "Slug" for you newbies:p  that pulled up the 3D image of Sludge walking around in Dinosaur form; he was also shown later on suspended in animation on the ceiling of some room.

    Go to 2:11 to see Sludge:




    EDIT: I guess that was Swoop up on the ceiling and not Sludge, my bad.


    I doubt he's dead. He survives an army of Insecticons with nothing more than his rage--Me King has become the freakin' Hulk. No explosion will contain him. Shockwave, too, will survive and will be one hand short from now on:thumb 

    While I wouldn't mind it if he actually died, I don't see that ever happening. I'm sure he and everyone else will be awaken from Stasis Lock 4 million years later on Earth.

    How? HMS has redone the first half of the original two episodes of the Transformers called More Than Meets the Eye with a lot of fleshing out! I figure the second half will take place on Earth 4+ million years later.

    I don't see them going to any other worlds, as the Space Bridge was set to Earth before the explosion and they all went through before it collapsed.

    You know they have something penciled down;) 

    EDIT:

    Actually, the two lose their grip and tumble behind the ark just as it and the Nemesis disappear inside the collapsed worm whole created by the Space Bridge.
