    No.
    After TF3 Plot Leak, Michael Bay ordered not to publish any books based off on Transformers Live Action Movies. Authors were not given script material in advance to work on story/art. These include Comics, Adaptation Novels and Children's Books such as Coloring Books and Sticker Books.

    Actually, I think as a Director he has the right for secrecy. Something he often says is that he wants to surprise the audience. He's right. I watched DOTM with a friend who did not knew about the plot leak. I was amused to see his reaction when Sentinel betrayed. It's a reaction which did not came from me since I was spoiled.

    To be honest, even I miss the in-between movie material. I've immensely enjoyed Transformers 2007 Movie Prequel, Reign Of Starscream and enjoyed Alliance and Defiance even more. They were the very reason I came aboard the Transformers Fandom. To learn more. To discuss.

    However, Michael Bay's involvement may not be the reason behind lack of material between TF4 and TF5. We should not forget that everything that comes after AOE is a direct result of the Writers' Room. Everything is closely guarded. In-between materials are not there [yet] because they have plans for them.

    Fingers crossed. :)

    I really miss the tie in material from IDW. I wonder how much of the prequel materials will be contradicted by the new movies though. As much as I enjoy these movies they do need some form of expanded universe to help fill in plot holes and add development to background characters.
