    Can anyone confirm if this a april hoax or not? mmosite.com claims that the MMO game will reveal the 3rd faction. It says that The 3rd faction seems to be the common enemy of Autobots and Decepticons since Jagex says there will be gameplay that Autobots join hands with Decepticons to battle the new faction.

    Look like someone does not understand that Transformers isn't a FASA franchise.

    I always figured a TF MMO should have the Quints as the real antagonists.

    This news was posted before April 1, oddly... Well - the second link anyways.

    Could be the Decepticon Empire ala G2?

    Weren't they just the Cybertronian empire though? They had Decepticon roots and Decepticon-based emblems, but I don't recall them ever referring to themselves as Decepticons.

    Wow! A third person shooter MMO, that is pretty ambitious for a company that has never made one, still I remain optimistic for this game and am looking foward to it's release.

    Well Minicons were a third faction, supposedly. They ended up just being bitches of the bigger bots though, rather than a fully fledged separate allegiance.

    Similar with the Quints, they were a mutual enemy, but not consider a race of Transformers.

    It'll be interesting to see what this third faction will be, and whether the idea catches on. I can't imagine this fandom would take overly well to it being Autobts, Decepticons and the Blah-blahs. We hate change.

    I'm surprised that no one has guessed Heralds of Unicron. Whether or not they wear the Decepticon emblem, guys like Galvatron or the Fallen were often pursuing their own agenda.

    If that "third faction" is a reference to IDW, then that's already been revealed in the Drift miniseries, they were Cybertronians who left just as the Civil War was hitting it's swing. And they're technical pacifists and certainly isolationists.
