Another War for Cybertron Afoot!

Hasboro, in its latest investor-focused event, announced a number of new video game products for the Transformers series, including movie tie-ins and a sequel to to Transformers: War for Cybertron.

Hasboro, the toy manufacturer and owner of the Transformers name announced multiple Transformers-based game products at its November Hasboro Investors Day.

MMO-developer Net Dragon will be collaborating with Hasboro to produce the game, and while it will be released first in Asian countries, there are plans to port the project to other countries in the future.

Finally, the company unveiled that it would be working with Activision to develop sequels to the 2010 hit Transformers: War for Cybertron (the subtitle is "Cybertron Adventures" on the Wii). No concrete details have been released for this project, but it is most likely expected for all consoles and DS/3DS. The game will be released in 2012.
