We have some really exciting news now for all you Transformers fans out there, as UK-based MMO developer Jagex and toy manufacturer Hasbro have just announced that they are joining forces, and will be releasing a new Transformers-based MMO.
However, it looks like we’ve got a bit of a wait for the game to arrive, as according to Kris Graft at gamasutra.com they won’t be releasing it until 2012. Jagex is best known for its hugely popular free-to-play browser-based MMO RuneScape, which was launched back in 2001.
Under the new partnership with Hasbro, Jagex will be releasing the Transformers MMO in Latin America, North America, Australia, New Zealand and Europe. Although Jagex CEO Mark Gerhard didn’t reveal any details, he did promise that the game would be action-packed.
Asia on the other hand is getting a Transformers MMO of its very own. Chinese online game developer NetDragon partnered with Hasbro last year, and will be releasing their title sometime this year. Don’t forget you also have the Transformers: Dark of the Moon game to look forward to.
Are you a Transformers fan? If so, which game are you looking forward to the most: Transformers: Dark of the Moon or the MMO?
