    It would be great if news and a trailer as well as gameplay footage came out next month
    This way it would be our version of March Madness

    I haven't posted in here in a while! Time for a bit of an update, here is the current situation as I understand it. (Tl;dr will be at the bottom.)

    Robo has been posting a lot from an older build of the game, I have seen a good bit of it, I have also seen Powerglide and stuff. Overall it looks pretty cool but I definitely hope Splash did a lot to make it more engaging.

    Now, the big thing, the trailer rumours. We have two sources, first off is TRANSFORMERS GENERATIONS/Greg Sanders https://www.youtube.com/@TransformersGenerations/streams, whose main claim to fame is getting the TFR toy descriptions right back in 2021 or 2022, he might've gotten things right besides that but I'm unsure. I've spoken to him a bit, can't fully verify that he's telling the truth but he's a good guy and I'm inclined to trust him. He says that he a contact at the production house who made Trailer 2, its done by this point most likely. Greg has allegedly seen storyboards, animatics and small completed sequences (without audio) from Trailer 2. It's apparently really good, features a "beloved character" and the version sent to Hasbro for approval was approximately 3 minutes long. I heard that he said the trailer will feature a release date, but I'm unsure. He also mentioned that the following list is a list of characters Hasbro gave the company essentially saying "These are our priority characters, you are allowed to use these in the trailer." Allegedly the list is even longer, but this is the sample he received:

    Optimus Prime
    Bumblebee
    Windblade
    Hot Rod
    Grimlock (New)
    Ironhide
    Ratchet
    Megatron
    Starscream
    Shockwave
    Slipstream
    The Seekers (New)
    The Insecticons (New)
    Soundwave's Cassettes (Ravage, Rumble, Frenzy & Laserbeak)


    He specified that this is not the complete list, nor is it a confirmation of who appears in trailer 2. We knew about all these characters besides the ones actually marked as New.

    While I cannot verify his claims, I'm inclined to believe him.

    Now, second source is THE14THPRIME on Youtube
    . I've spoken to him a bit as well, and he seems to be in contact with someone at Splash Damage who has been providing him some info. He said to me a few weeks ago independently of the other claims that a new trailer is coming. He's since spoken publicly on the matter and is explicitly saying the trailer is in a month. He also mentioned seeing an updated roster, and that Unicron is allegedly in the game.

    I have nothing to back him up unfortunately, he very well could be lying but from speaking to him, I am inclined to think he might have something.

    TL;DR: We have two sources, independent of one another saying a trailer is inbound. One has (alleged) ties to the trailer production company, and has a bit of a track record of getting stuff right previously as he described the TFR toys years before they came out. The other source is a bit less verifiable, he claims to have a Splash insider who told him a trailer was coming and the game was releasing this year. I have personally spoken to both of them, and I am inclined to believe they are both being truthful but have not been given anything concrete to back this up. Until I get definitive evidence, treat this all as he said she said rumour.

    No indication of Sideswipe right now. Sunstreaker wasn't implemented in the Certain Affinity build of the game, but he was planned.

    This is great news to hear if true. What about the voice cast?

    It wasn't that extensive right? I feel like for the most part it was the same if not very similar/inspired

    Soundwave's redesign for this game is more or less the Evergreen design run through a "realism" filter

    I mean, starscream looks about the same, but soundwave? Not really. Pretty much the only things they have in common are the shoulder cannon, the head, and the fact that they are both communication trucks. And even then the cannons are different, the heads are different takes on g1 soundwave, and the trucks are different models.

    I love how accurate they are as well, really makes you appreciate how clean these designs are, as damaged as they’re supposed to look
