    The sky is now the limit on where this can go and I can't wait to see what you guys do. I was scared at first that this would be locked down to some other timeline, but giving the fans another timeline and mythos to really sink our teeth into... I can't wait.

    Just in case the developers are looking.. thanks!

    I just heard an interview, one among many, in which the head developer Matt Tieger said that the game ends where the G1 cartoon begins. Not to burst your bubble at all, I just think there are still inumerable possibilities as to where it can go.

    Yeah, just about everything said about this game has been about how it's a prequel, either to G1 or Transformers: Prime.

    One of the things I'm kind of hoping High Moon Studios does if they do make a sequel is that we get to see the Autobots and Decepticons battle on other worlds as well as in addition to fighting on Cybertron. We've all heard how this game has been described as the pre-cursor to the original Sunbow G1 toon, so perhaps the next game will see the Autobots and Decepticons leave Cybertron and then continue their battle across the galaxy before coming to Earth.

    I've said this before, I'd like to see it skip past rebirth and tackle JHixaus, as he attempts to destroy the universe... Have the Bots and Cons defend their homeworlds (Cybertron, Earth and Charr) and you can have the groups meet in the middle (Aboard JHixaus warship) and have to form an uneasy alliance (So you could team Bots with Cons).

    There's tons of possibilities, or have we forgotten the almighty Retcon? :D

    I certainly wouldn't mind that.

    I'd love to see some huge campaigns come out of this, introducing a real Quintesson force that causes the Autobots and Decepticons to "work together" could be really cool. Imagine playing team missions with both, but each faction has their own agenda. Do they work together and accomplish both goals, or do they go their own seperate ways? Do they betray one another?

    Hasbro's said at least twice in official statements that WFC is a prequel for the new standard continuity that will take over TFs from now on.

    And Matt has said that it's a precurser to G1.

    2 different continuities. The 2 different Bumblebee's will tell ya enough right there.

    And WFC doesn't already paint a wholly different continuity from the G1 cartoon?

    And doesn't the OFFICIAL novelization "Exodus" paint yet another picture OF THE SAME STORY.

    Seriously, at this point, labeling any ONE project the "true prequel" is kind of pointless.

    That's not what Executive Producer Rob Loftus says:

    So... sky's the limit for where this storyline could go. I'd like to see other places in Transformers space.

    In the Nelson interview with Matt, Matt states Hasbro now view WfC as G1s prequel.

    The misinformation continues. It doesn't matter what Matt Tieger or anyone in the know says or continues to say, as some people just can't accept this game as being a prequel to G1. The naysayers continue to watch the development of this game with blinders and all.

    And some even think that it's tied in with Transformers: PRIME

    Like Hasbro. But they don't have any say in the matter, I mean... What do they know about Transformers anyway?

    Where did they said that?

    Tho,it would be interesting if they found a way to somehow fit the personalites changes like how Prime is willing to use lethal force here and not in G1 and how Bumbleebe turned into a useless wuss.

    people read too much into the statements.

    wfc is just a new mature structured beginning.

    if they wanted to link it to the old g1 cartoon they would have nitemares trying to fix all the inconsistencies of what was basically toy commercials.

    i still like the cartoons but they are a bit of a joke now.
