Transformers: Fall of Cybertron Announced

Transformers: Fall of Cybertron has been announced for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 as the follow-up to the highly successful “Transformers: War for Cybertron“, both developed by High Moon Studios. The game will be released in 2012 (Fall).

Transformers: Fall of Cybertron takes fans through the final, darkest hours of the civil war between the Autobots and Decepticons as they fight for control of their dying planet, ultimately leading to their storied exodus from home.

The game will be fully unveiled in the November 2011 issue of Game Informer magazine, as Transformers: Fall of Cybertron graces the cover with dual, limited-edition covers.

“High Moon Studios is an extremely talented development team having raised the bar of gameplay and TRANSFORMERS authenticity in their games,” said David Oxford, Executive Vice President at Activision Publishing. “TRANSFORMERS: FALL OF CYBERTRON is an extraordinary project both for the studio and the TRANSFORMERS gaming legacy – the stakes are higher and the scale much larger than ever before, and we absolutely cannot wait for fans to see all the new characters and epic action that awaits them.”

“Hasbro has worked hand in hand with Activision to create a fully original storyline that details the climactic battles leading to the famed exodus of the TRANSFORMERS characters from CYBERTRON,” said Mark Blecher, SVP of Digital Media and Marketing, Hasbro. “Our team at Hasbro is looking forward to exploring and expanding the TRANSFORMERS story again with an incredible blockbuster video game that will blow fans away next year.”
