    OMG, I WISH THIS GAME DIDN'T EXIST BECAUSE IT DOESN'T TARGET MY INTERESTS OR MY PREFERRED OPERATING SYSTEM. I CAN'T HAVE IT OR WANT IT SO PLEASE MAKE IT DISAPPEAR RIGHT AWAY.

    Okay, I got that out of the way. Apple Arcade games can vary from very shallow to very deep but none of them are F2P money sinks. They have a Star Trek game that is essentially a gatcha game but with all of the money sinks stripped out.

    My prediction: This will be a middle of the road mobile game, not a bad thing. My fingers are crossed that it'll have a lot of fanservice. I'm getting the feeling that Apple is actively working with developers on scooping up popular licenses and putting out fan-oriented games on their service.

    Solution For Android Users: Borrow someone's used iPad for a week or a month, subscribe to Apple Arcade for one month and play this game. After a week you'll absorb all of the content contained in the game. Cancel your subscription, return the borrowed iPad and move on with your life.

    Or! Just ignore this game. It'll just be a middle-of-the-road mobile game.

    I choose option B:
    I think I'll just lose interest immediately.

    A Fortnite Battle Royale type Transformers game would be better than this.

    You could invest your resources in a MMORPGTPS and a lot more people would be satisfied. Just saying. I've got a lot of ideas here.

    EDIT: or even just an actual console game?

    You know I'm glad that recently there was that reveal about Hasbro's personal game studio for some hope of another quality TF game. But the TF mobile games in particular (being made on a monthly basis now it seems) being cranked out constantly is really taking the "do you guys not have phones?" meme to 1000.

    Y-you do know that there's no video game sequel to FoC developed by High Moon Studios, right?

    I don't want a spiritual successor, I want a direct sequel.

    I can’t believe I actually agree with everyone else for once. I’m glad for anyone that’s excited about this, but personally- I’d rather have a console Transformers game.

    And I wouldn’t hate using designs that aren’t strictly G1, but I’m not picky

    Are you referring to Transformers: Prime? I guess some people didn't get the memo. Long story short, the so-called "Aligned Continuity" wasn't quite as aligned as Hasbro intended, so the idea was scrapped and the universe wound up being split into several parallel ones, collectively known as "the Uniend cluster." So no, there isn't a Fall of Cybertron sequel. Not a proper one, at least.

    I would like to pretend WFC/FOC doesn’t exist in the same continuity as Prime. It makes life so much easier.

    Back when movie licensed games were a thing, it was always a curious fallback for wanting a new TF game. I think ill just marathon the movie console games and the Cybertron games until we get a new big game project. Its a real shame that Devastation\'s sequel went under, we probably would have a decent trilogy out of it.
