Transformers: Fall of Cybertron
Transformers: Fall of Cybertron Release Date Brought Forward a Week

We updated today's Transformers: Fall of Cybertron Metroplex trailer with news that Activision and High Moon Studios have today brought forward the release date for the War for Cybertron sequel, but we thought we'd post the story again separately here, in case anyone misses it.

So, yeah... Transformers: Fall of Cybertron had been originally dated for August 28th in North America and August 31st in Europe, but the release date has been pushed forward by a week, which means seven days less waiting for the latest Transformers game. A move that Grimlock approves of, as you can see in the art below.

That's right: Transformers: Fall of Cybertron will now be launching on August 21st in North America and August 24th in Europe. For more on High Moon's sequel, check out our E3 preview and our interview with Game Director, Matt Tieger.

I don't know why people hate Activision so much, they have a sh*t load of good games and they are all solid games. Only franchise they could work on a little better is COD.

@2, War for Cybertron and Fall of Cybertron were released over two years apart. Your argument is invalid.

@M1 Punk You are a fool, the only reason Dark of The Moon was released last year was because of the movie and the fact that Activision has the rights to publish the games. This is Hasbro's franchise. If there was no movie last year then we wouldn't have seen Dark of The Moon. So it would read

2010 - Transformers: War for Cybertron
2012 - Transformers: Fall of Cybertron

Also the transformers games have been crap until High Moon Sutdios gave us WOC which most people loved. So a sequel would obviously be green lit. The fans want more so they are getting it. There is no Transformers game coming next year, Transformers 4(the movie)won't be out until 2014. So your comments are just invalid. You are obviously a COD, transformers, Activision hater who needs to find something to do besides post about something he doesn't care about.

@9 Dark of the Moon was a crappy movie game that was pushed out alongside the movie, and wasn't even really worked on because they were trying to make a deadline, just like all movie games. Once again, your argument is invalid.

Looks great and will be buying it, although the developers are a little to keen on pushing the multiplayer aspect of the two games by making the Achievement list multiplayer heavy.

I was getting a little bored of the background and enviroments a little by the end of the first game and hope their is a little bit more variety in this one.

A trilogy would ne great with the 3rd game focusing on leaving Cybertron and having the bulk of the campaign on earth.

My point is you talked about all the call of duty and transformers games. Yet I'm an idiot for not buying any of the c.o.d. Games or dark if the moon.
Therefore your point makes no sense. No get out of your moms basement and go get a job to buy all the games you want.

at M1 punk, read your post again ( #22 ) it completely contradicts itself. You say that you never siad he buys those games, then call him an idiot for buying those games WTF.

@25 thats what I was thinking. I have checked and am sure it is him. Not only does he have MW3 and Blackops on his list he also has, wait for it, COD elite as well.

not to mention every Halo ( including wars ) Battlefield, assasins creed games on his list, but he has several Capcom fighters.

but only idiots keep buying the same games from the same company apparently.

yea but the game is being used as a front for multiplayer mostly. they removed all co-op. they added a lot more multiplayer and anyone wanna bet that the single player is super short compared to the other one? and don't forget your obligitory day 1 dlc for multiplayer and more promised in the future.

Dear heretic555666,

please think before you post a comment. That may prevent an idiot like yourself from posting 4 separate comments. I'm not gonna bother to read the other 3.

@27 Sweet, I love all the attention you're giving me :) I can pretty much justify every accusation you got but I'm above that.

I just wanna say: "I did not pay for COD Elite".

1) you owned nobody

2)you are an idiot

3) you are an idiot

4) you guessed it, you are an idiot

5) you keep talking about owning asses, I dont judge people, but is the aquisition of other mens asses a life goal for you or something, because if it is there are much better sites for people into that sort of thing.

hmmm let me see, you responded to everything I said apart from the last point. Now that is very interesting.

and no, sorry to say you owned nobody, simply because your argument was based on your very first post. Which was flawed to start with. your very premise of the Transformers War/fall series being an annual thing thing by filling 2 year gap with a totally unrelated transformers games pointed to you not having a clue from the start.

Simply pointing out the reality to which you seem inclined to ignore.

Anyway back on topic, I would love it if Highmoon got the go ahead to work on a genuine G1 licensed games. As good as this game is I dont understand why everyone thinks they can do a better job than the original iconic characters by constantly redesigning them.

Jeez, this thread has been hijacked by the king of all trolls. Here are the FACTS:

(1) If you do any research at all, you will see that Dark of the Moon has nothing to do with the Cybertron series. War for Cybertron was an excellent, well-crafted game with great multiplayer. Dark of the Moon was a movie tie-in game that was forced to be pushed out the door without any polish.

(2) While I agree with you on Call of Duty, Battlefield, and some of the other games out there, this sequel has a lot of potential. If you actually watched the videos that have been coming out for the game and linked on this site, you would see that they have put a lot of time and energy into the art design and improving on the original. have you even played the first one? I doubt it, or if you did play it, I bet you played it for an hour and decided you couldn't handle it. Just as well, I suppose...I'm glad you won't be buying it if only because mouth-breathing trolls who live in their parents basement (like you) can congregate inside another sh*t-infested series while the rest of the adults enjoy what I am sure will be an excellent series.

Now go back to your $5.00 an hour job at Hot Topic and take the ridiculous chain off your one is going to steal your bus pass.
