Platinum Games’ Transformers: Devastation officially announced

Later this year on everything but Wii U

After Best Buy and a leak spilled the beans, we now have official confirmation from Activision — Platinum Games will develop Transformers: Devastation, an upcoming action project based on the Transformers universe. It will debut on PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One “later this year.” This was the new Platinum project that was teased.

Evidently you’ll be able to play as one of five Autobots: Optimus, Bumblebee, Sideswipe, Wheeljack, and Grimlock. RPG-like elements will be infused, including new skill unlocks and weapons. Classic voice actors are confirmed, including Dan Gilvezan, Frank Welker, Gregg Berger, and of course, Peter Cullen.

As a G1 man myself, I’m all over this. Michael Bay, eat your heart out.
