Transformers MMORPG announced, but you might never play it

Since the last Transformers game, War for Cybertron, arrived and was tons of fun, we’ve been left with one question: aside from some WfC DLC, what’s next for the robots in disguise? Today, on the website for Netdragon, a China-based MMO developer, it was revealed (via Kotaku) 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 that it’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’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’ll keep that hope out there, till all are one.
