That's contingent upon the other product pages being ready. I highly doubt this is exclusive, and I wouldn't look at this as confirmation that Acti won't drop the Transformers licence come next January -- remember that 007 Legends wasn't even three months old when it ditched Bond.

Not always. The Mirrors Edge 2 Amazon leak only listed the Xbox One (and 360) for some reason, and everybody was convinced it was exclusive before the announcement. It must be something in Amazon database that does it.

From Eurogamer

"Amazon (via NintendoLife) has published listings for an unannounced Transformers game called Rise of the Dark Spark.

It's down for PlayStation 3, Wii U, Xbox 360, 3DS, Xbox One and PlayStation 4.

That's all we have for now, save it's published by Activision and this brief product description:

"The next installment in the incredible Transformers gaming franchise, Transformers: Rise of the Dark Spark is an exciting action game that is perfect for veteran fans and newcomers."

News of a new Transformers game from Activision comes as no surprise, given there's a new Transformers movie due out in June"

I liked War for Cybertron, I loved Fall of Cybertron. I want a next-gen Transformers game on PC, with stunning graphics and awesome (transformation) animations. Something's telling me that won't happen anytime soon.

Hope the best for the next TF game though...

well as long as it's a generic TPS and the budget is okay, it should be acceptable.

Fall release or after would be madness tho.

WFC and FOC were good because they were based on the cartoon. The others were poop. If this is going to be one of those cash cows that they release with the new movie, im out.

Have you played the PS2 Tranformers by any chance? Yes it's based on the Armada animated series but i had some great graphics for its time.

You can play as grimlock in War For Cybertron.

It's a rad fucking game and i highly suggest picking it up if you are a Transformers fan. A lot of fan service.

I hope it's High Moon but since they got gutted by Activision and are now set to work on COD I'm not so sure.

Then again, didn't someone from High Moon say they were working on a next gen game a while ago - before they got layoffs? I might just be imagining things.

-edit- Yeah, it's probably a shit house movie tie in.

The movie is called Age of Extinction, how would this be it?

However, a game trademark for it was made:

http://www.gameinformer.com/b/news/a...trademark.aspx

So maybe they have two games up their sleeve?

I'd only ever accept a new High Moon game (loved their Cybertron titles), otherwise expectations are at the lowest they can be for as long as the rights are with Activision.

Either this is tied to the Age of Extinction film or it's an entirely separate title alongside their inevitable Age of Extinction tie-in.

Not too graphically impressive for a next gen game but I loved War for Cybertron and Fall of Cybertron so I have hope. Not High Moon though.

I know it's just a reveal trailer but...really not feeling it.

Like, it looks like some recycled footage from the Cybertron games with the movie stuff thrown in. I didn't see High Moons name on it at the end either.

Smells like a typical movie tie in using some of the assets from the Cybertron games (that's if any of it actually takes place on Cybertron like it shows) and not developed by High Moon.

Da hell?

That's... random.

Yay for Vicarious for the first time since WOC on DS, nice on the latter, confusing on the former. Don't really consider them the same tier as High Moon.

Also links? Can't find them on IGN. Just the video.

I don't get it. It's an Age of Extinction movie tie-in merged with the Cybertron games?

Either way I'm passing. As much as I love the Transformers brand, I have no desire to play these games. The ones from High Moon were exceptions (and brilliant) but we will never get ones from them again.

Of course, it's early to say, but the fact that it's not Age of Extinction: The Game speaks well to the company's intentions on this one.The movie games have been rushed in both the Transformers and Spider-Man franchises (and probably also suffered from asset delivery/secrecy in both cases as the movies have also been rushed and super-secretive,) and both are taking alternate story approaches in these new sequels that didn't need to be launching alongside the movies if the games weren't ready, so maybe there's a little room for cautious optimism for the current Activision licensing approach? (Both are still being timed as a movie companions, however, so that good will could be misplaced.)

Not being a movie tie-in didn't help TMNT: Out of the Shadows any. Activision's gonna Activision.

Activision has done indirect movie tie-ins in the past like Fast & Furious: Showdown, 007 Legends, and Men In Black: Alien Crisis. The only good news here is that Activision hasn't said Rise of the Dark Spark's launch will coincide with Age of Extinction's theatrical release.

Well, that's true. (Count Wolverine too, even though it shares the name the story is totally its own.) Moot point then.

Was corrected to Wayforward. I don't know what to do when Wayforward does work that doesn't seem like it'll be 2D...

Wait, I see Cybertron designs, movie designs, and what looked like Prime designs (the one bot's face). I am confused. I'll just have to wait to hear more.
