Activision has announced that Transformers: War for Cybertron is in development at High Moon Studios (The Bourne Conspiracy).

The game takes players to the Transformers' home planet of Cybertron for a new look into the story of the civil war.

"Transformers: War for Cybertron is an origins story, taking players on a gripping, adrenaline-fuelled journey that precedes the Transformers characters' arrival on Earth," said Rob Kostich, head of marketing, licensed products, Activision Publishing, Inc. "The game transports players to a living, metallic planet where they will battle as giant converting robots."

Hasbro is working with Activision to drive the Transformers fiction forward into new story arcs.

"This remarkable video game helps us to tell a critical event in Transformers lore that will be used as canon for future storylines in a way we could have only dreamed of a few years ago," said Aaron Archer, Senior Design Director, Hasbro. "It is a testament to the success of the Transformers brand and a key element to the story we look forward to telling in 2010 and beyond."

Transformers: War for Cybertron features two distinct storylines: the Autobot campaign tells a story of heroism to save their home planet against overwhelming odds, and the Decepticon campaign tells a story of a thirst for power to control the universe.

For the first time in a Transformers title, fans will be able to play with their friends in team-based online co-op, or go head to head in a variety online multiplayer game modes.

Transformers: War for Cybertron is in development for Xbox 360, PS3, PC, Wii and Nintendo DS.

Sounds like it could be pretty good. It would brilliant if it was an open world game.... All though it would take ages and the developers wouldn't be able to base the game on anything from earth.

We eat games for breakfast so of course we'd heard about this before today. It's just that Activision put out a press release today.

One day they'll make a game as good as the PS2 Transformers game. This may be it.

Better have online multiplayer though or it's a wasted opportunity.
