Transformers MMORPG announced, but you might never play it

A Chinese MMO developer secures the rights to make game based on '80s classic

Since the last Transformers game, War for Cybertron, arrived and was tons of fun, we%26rsquo;ve been left with one question: aside from some WfC DLC, what%26rsquo;s next for the robots in disguise? Today, on the website for Netdragon, a China-based MMO developer, it was revealed (viaKotaku) that it just secured the rights from Hasbro to make a Transformers MMORPG.

The only downside? Of the very few details revealed about the game, the one that jumps out at us is thatit%26rsquo;s apparently not coming to any predominantly English-speaking countries. Only Asia, Russia, North Africa and the Middle East will get a taste when the title is released at some unannounced time in the future.

Kind of a bummer, right? Still, it isn%26rsquo;t unheard of for foreign MMOs to come to us, and with a property as internationally popular as Transformers it seems even more likely. Perhaps this is just practice for a full-fledged release if all goes well. We%26rsquo;ll keep that hope out there, till all are one.
