    The problem is that you want answers that simply never existed. Lorenzo even admitted that the whole Unicron bit at the end of the film was a last minute addition and not originally something the final film was originally meant to have. Given Bumblebee was to follow up TLK, it's beyond obvious that from the ramshackle way that TLK itself came into being, the people in charge had no goddamn idea where they were going with any of it and the plan was to use the time bought by Bumblebee to invent whatever nonsense was supposed to be the payoff for TLK setting up Unicron.

    Like, even what you want could ultimately be completely disappointing. Lorenzo could just one day say in an interview that 'Megatron died, Quintessa left to go do something in deep space and never returned because she died somehow, and Optimus went back to leading the Autobots who are now apparently the only presence left on Cybertron so everything is peaceful again.'

    You're never going to get a fully developed sense of 'closure' in the way you want, unfortunately, because there literally is no point to it from Paramount's perspective. TLK screwed the pooch hard and nearly bankrupted the company, so much so that the only person left who gives a damn about the bay continuity is Lorenzo and he's basically a lying sack of shit and even he admitted he thinks the idea of Unicron is beyond dumb because of the size problem, so chances are Unicron wouldn't be addressed or, really, ever brought up again if Lorenzo had his way. Now there's Bumblebee which in one fell swoop actually restored some credibility of Transformers at the movie theatre, so why would Paramount/Hasbro devote a single iota of time and money to finishing off what is unquestionably a catastrophic disaster to the franchise, to almost no real gain in return on investment, when following up Bumblebee on a new continuity with characters with the big important names that Hasbro can market more effectively would be an insanely more efficient and profitable use of time?

    If anything, Hasbro and Paramount want to bury TLK at this point as much as possible to make people forget it ever happened. And so, they sure as hell aren't going to make a coda for it just to appease a bunch of whiny fans because the end profit simply doesn't justify the investment.

    Yeah, maybe make it a movie where the Autobots completely vanquish the Decepticons and victoriously leave earth for a new home . I real, definitive ending.

    Just skip the post credits scene, and TLK has a definitive ending. Smh even the tv spots call it the "final chapter"

    Someone should do an edit of that scene where the giant horn tips over and falls on Quintessa.
