    Was Optimus actually Orion Pax in the war for cybertron game? If so why was he called Optimus instead of Orion Pax?

    Technically he was Orion Pax up until he gets the Matrix in game. I think the reason why he was called Optimus was just for simplicity’s sake and for ease of access for casual people who had the game.

    In the novel that (loosely) adapts the game, Exodus, Optimus does start out as Orion. I'm guessing that in the game Hasbro didn't want to confuse more casual fans who may not know Optimus was anything other than Optimus.
