Neither Autobot nor Decepticon will be rolling out across gaming's entire hardware spectrum, as Activision has announced that Transformers: Fall of Cybertron won't see a release on the PC platform in Australia.
A media release sent by Activision heralding the game's launch was sent to outlets, before an updated version was offered minutes later. In its revision, PC was removed from the available platforms, the change highlighted by a simple note:
"Please be advised that TRANSFORMERS: FALL OF CYBERTRON will not be available on PC in Australia."
The PC is no stranger to the-platform-is-dead naysaying, while Australia has experienced its share of region-specific knocks. However, it's disappointing to see a hefty one-two punch come from a publisher such as Activision on a title with such wide appeal.
We've reached out to Activision for additional comment, and will update this story when we know more.
UPDATE: A representative of Activision's PR agency provided the following response:
"It’s just not available; sorry don’t have any more information on that one."
UPDATE 2: We've received additional word from Activision's internal PR:
"Each publisher makes decisions about which titles and which platforms to release based on consumer demand."
