Jagex (Runescape) and Hasbro this morning announced that they are partnering up to create a massively multiplayer online game based on the Transformers license. The two companies aim to launch the MMO next year in all major Western markets.
No details about the MMO are known at this time, though Jagex primarily develops browser-based games, and given the relatively close release window it is probably safe to assume that this too will be browser-based. The press release also states “Iconic Autobots and Decepticons set to battle online in 2012,” so players will probably embody the bots, rather than a plucky human sidekick.
What do you think of the announcement? Is this great news for Transformers fans, or is this worse than the last Michael Bay outing? Let us know below!
