    It's free game.

    Because of that I ask this: what do you think the next Transformers game should be like?

    Would you rather it stick to what it has been for the last while?

    Something closer to older style games (Armada ps2, ROTF)?

    Or something completely different altogether?

    Do you have a specific developer in mind?

    What are things you want to see?

    What are things you would hate to see?

    What are things you fear of happening?

    Personally I just want something with a good combat system and gameplay mechanics where every character feels unique.

    But yeah, basically what do YOU want?

    Honestly, I want High Moon back, they did one hell of a job and gave huge video gamers like myself not only a extremely well made game but a Transformers game that has extreme depth to it that is not only backed up by gameplay but story too.
    You could tell when they made both WFC and FOC, they loved every second of what they were doing.

    Sure, I loved the Armada game A LOT but it never had the stories of HMS's games, nor the level designs, nor the depth... It's a simple action game that is simple fun and I totally dig games like that, Atari was always great at that but gameplay is not the only thing that makes a Transformers game to me.

    Edge of Reality ruined what was once a great series, I mean even High Moon movie tie-in's DOTM game had a pretty entertaining story with well designed levels but this movie tie-in game is very dull, lacking in so many ways and shows that they have no idea what it takes to make a good Transformers game because all they know how to do is apparently copy and paste and write lackluster stories.
    Sure the Escalation is decent but doesn't redeem the game.

    Sure HMS had it's ups and downs with the game especially Fall of Cybertron's multiplayer but I've played hours of the game and I find is the most solidest Transformers game to date... Activision completely dismantled a perfectly fine studio over a sub-average Deadpool game and made some of the team work on the god awful COD series. (I'm only guessing they did this because of how FOC multiplayer turned out after all the "improvements".... Hey at least WFC multiplayer still works great. ;)  )
    I mean, even Transformers Universe to me flopped and all hope for the only other good idea of a Transformers game is over which is of course is a MMORPG or even MMOFPS.
    I would of paid monthly to play a well made MMO with Transformers, who wouldn't? I mean Jagex made Runescape which is somehow still alive and doing well..... But anywho my point is, they screwed up a perfectly well idea and turned it in to a MOBA.

    All I really want is HMS back but at full force, they to me earned their right to make Transformers games and I wish they could of continued.

    We are getting a game for Tf5, You know this correct?

    It was confirmed a while ago along with many of Hasbro's future plans.

    Hope this is the same Rocksteady is doing with Arkham Knights. Have another studio do a quick cash in to please the publisher. Then make the next true next-gen follow up. Since they are probably almost done with helping with call of duty and there is no movie for a while. They can hire up some staff and make the third game.

    What I want in a future Transformers game is something that will never happen. A Generation One game that tells how the war ended in the Sunbow continuity and thereby gives it a proper ending. Character models would all be 100% accurate to show design, all living voice actors would make a return, a final battle between Optimus and Galvatron would take place, Powermaster Prime would make an appearance, you'd get to fly Fortress Maximus in space, stuff like that. But Hasbro aren't selling G1 toys right now so they'd have no reason to make a G1 game. Unless, however, they make a Transformers: Generations game. That would still be somewhat G1 and they could promote the toys.

    I think the future transformers game will probably run on the high moon engine if not just a upgraded version.

    I would like to see edge of reality give it another shot just not on a movie game because they tend to be forced to rush the game. From the ideas edge of reality put in if they made a game without a time limit it may be great! Other then that I would like a transformers game on earth where you have to use your vehicle form to disguise yourself when your low on health. Kind of like the "hide and seek" of transformers games but with the shooting aspects added in.

    A freakin' MMO, please. PLEASE.

    But for consoles, I want a game that actually captures the aesthetic and style of the movies, with transformations that last long and are detailed but happen while you move, and thus, don't slow you down.
    None of the games truly give you a giant robot feel, except maybe the first movie game, but not the same giant robot feel as the movies. You hit a guy with a gigantic mace, he goes "UGH" and does a little animation. In the movies they would go flying and have to get up off the ground or pull themselves out of a new hole in a building. I'm sure they could do all of that with the huge capacity of the PS4 and Xbox One.

    ...No it wasn't?

    I think every single transformers game had something good and if we take all these good things and put them together we can have a good transformers game.
    Let's just take the open world with destructible environments from the first move game and polish it, add revenge of the fallens gameplay mechanics along with the character selection for missions and multiplayer, add war/fall of Cybertron story telling and ROTDS escalation. If done right that could be the best transformers game ever. If hasbro got ubisoft to make the game than it would definitely work.

    Is HMS being done with the franchise confirmed? I thought it was the Batman: Arkham model where, another studio does a "side-story" version of the game to "fill in the gap", while the main studio takes time to finish the next iteration.

    They had to lay off 40 people at HMS so it's not looking very good for the studio. They are now making a Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare port for last-gen consoles and we have not heard anything from them about a new Transformers game.

    It could be if the cybertron games continue edge of reality might be the one who picks it up. If that's the case it will be interesting to see what they can do with more development time and not trying to cram two stories into one. It might also be the reason the cybertron section was put into rotds to give the series a send off and end it. I really hope the next game is a huge open world with free roam, where transforming is needed for more than quick getaways to dodge enemy fire, where when you transform you don't almost instantly reach the end of the map or come to the end of a hallway.

    What I want to see is Hasbro move the Transformers license somewhere else. Activision is a **** company. High Moon did Transformers the way Rocksteady did Batman, RIGHT! The only hope I have with a future TF game is a new company doing it. As good as the Cybertron games were, they weren't perfect as it had horrible DLC and online was hit or miss. Hasbro, it's time for someone else to take over. So glad I only redboxed Dark Spark, what a PoS.

    I'd love to see HMS do another title, if only because their aesthetic is one of my favorites. I love their designs. They're up there with the current IDW designs.

    For non-HMS titles, I'd love an MMO, and I'd love a truly open world.

    Track down everybody from Luxoflux that they can, and make Revenge of the Fallen 2.
