IGN has announced that Jagex Game Studio and Hasbro has hooked up to produce a massively multiplayer online game (AKA MMO) for ‘Transformers’. Based on the press release, “iconic Autobots and Decepticons set to battle online in 2012”, Jagex and Hasbro looks to be rushing this game out for next year. I am not sure how well that is going to work out considering MMO can take years to perfect. At the same time, Jagex is known for browser based games, so this might not be a huge MMO that we come to love like ‘World of Warcraft’. This might be nothing more than ‘Farmville’ with Transformers. I’m not sure how appealing it would be to have a Transformers MMO browser based game. It would be too simple and I doubt the action would be that spectacular in-game. I guess, we will have to just wait and see what it is.
Tip: As the title suggests, if you do end up playing this game and Arcee winks at you and throws out a bunch of emotes, its probably some guy.
