    Tencent Games have issued an announcement on their website regarding the closure of their game, Transformers Online. The delisting will begin to take effect on:

    -November 14, 2019 (prevent new user registration)
    -November 28, 2019 (compensation for players; in-game currency)
    -February 13, 2020 (all operations will be ceased and the game will officially shut down)

    Transformers Online was a Chinese exclusive Multiplayer online first-person shooter developed by Tencent Games which released in June 23, 2017. The game is most comparable to Overwatch, which share the same core gameplay mechanics. Since it was exclusive to the East, the game never saw a Western release.

    This is not to be confused with the already cancelled Transformers Online which was developed by NetDragon or Certain Affinity's Transformers Online which is currently in development.

    Here is the link to the announcement. Although if you aren't bilingual, you may need to translate the website: 变形金刚 - 服务退换中心 - 腾讯游戏

    I used to always request MMOJACKX57 to make gameplay videos for Ratchet. It's a shame I'll never get to experience playing as my favorite autobot :cry :cry

    Always liked the look of the characters in this game. Shame I’ll never get to play it
    And a shame we’ll never get toys based on the designs now.

    Welp, another one bites the dust I guess.

    Had some cool designs, played it a few times and it was aight I guess. There's a good idea here but the cast was pretty lacking, last I checked the Autobots way outnumber the Decepticons, which is kinda lame.

    Games titled "Transformers Online" really don't have a lot of luck, do they?

    Oh well, another one bites the dust. Hopefully the next one succeeds where its predecessors have utterly failed.

    We've got to archive the game files so it won't become lost media!

    Why?

    I have no faith that Hasbro's games will be as ambitious; I imagine it to be more G1 fanservice.

    If only we got game’s like WFC or FOC again, amazing single player and then you get the bonus of multiplayer. That way the game and your money isn’t just thrown out the window as soon as the servers die after 2 years

    I honestly think that after playing Titanfall again recently that Respawn could actually make a pretty awesome take on a transformer game. Just remove the “pilot” part and have a separate class for humans as support in multiplayer/co-op.

    It would add a different multiplayer challenge for humans because you’d have to deal with vehicular (stealh force style) as well as bipedal behemoth opposition converting on the fly.

    I think the one thing they need to get right is the mass, because personally I believe the ONLY game that got this right was the PS2 Armada game. You felt physically powerful even just walking because you could hear the weight. Don’t get me started on ragdoll physics.
