So, nothing recent in the IDW comics themselves really prompted this question but I was rummaging through TFWiki (as one does) and wound up at Turmoil's page. It got me thinking about the character and the role he played in both the Drift comics and RiD and... I can honestly say that I miss the guy. Despite being a two-dimensional character who was never fleshed out in a super meaningful way, I think Turmoil's presence really added something to the IDW universe. He was a complete asshole who was totally down with demeaning and mocking (even name-calling) his adversaries but he also had a brutal honesty that I liked a lot. Between belittling Perceptor for giving his position away and calling out Drift for his moral hypocrisy, there was a number of times that I'd find myself thinking "he kinda has a point" after reading his dialogue. In a time when so many of the big players in IDW, particularly on Cybertron, have hidden agendas and secrets that they cannot afford to have others learn of, a character as blunt and direct as Turmoil would be a really cool wildcard to have around. It could also be interesting to see how such a militaristic character would deal with a world in which his leader has defected and his faction has splintered. I get that he's technically dead, but we have seen characters survive worse injuries in IDW and I don't think it would be unreasonable for us to learn that he's, for example, been in Starscream's custody this whole time, clinging to life in a comatose state similar to Springer post-LSotW. I don't know what explicit reason there would be for him to come back but like I said, it's more about the unique role the character filled in the universe. Even if there was different character of a similar archetype, I think the IDW continuity could use the presence of a "blunt and taciturn" (per the wiki) soldier.
