Why was this game not given to a professional game studio like Activision or Sega, or Sony, someone who at least knows how to make a damn game.

It's so depressing that we finally get a game, and actual MMO for TFs and this is the losers they get to make it.


Why so negative? This may be Jagex's big break! :D And Activision never messed up any of the movie games did they? :roll:

Jagex were the ones behind Runescape, which was and still is a moderately sucessful game despite being browser based.

Might not be a top-tier company like Activision or Sony, but they clearly know what they're doing.

I dispute these claims. Just because you don't like whatever browser based games you've played doesn't mean others don't enjoy them. There's obviously a market, otherwise they wouldn't exist on that platform. However, I don't dispute your ability to choose not to play the game based on your assumptions and preferences.

Those aren't game studios. Not individual ones, anyway (sega technically is now, but they have multiple development houses - and yes, which one matters). Activision is a publisher. They give game developers money if they think the game will make their investment back (which, to some, is one of the things bad about the gaming industry...these big publishers sometimes prefer only to fund sequels or copycat games because they have comparable past monetization to help sell the next "new" game/sequel, etc.)
Hence smaller companies, kickstarter campaigns, and other indy games like Minecraft being well invested by others.

I always have hope for a game and reserve judgement until factual information (enough data, or actual gameplay) is released. I'm not saying you have to, but no, I don't think any other developer would have or could have done this better at this point in time. The fact that Jagex is doing it at all tells you either they came to Hasbro first (out of other developers), or Hasbro had them as their choice for whatever reason. In either of these situations I find it FAR more likely they'll produce a game they're proud of than if Hasbro would've gone to Activision and said, "Hey, we need a developer to make such & such idea." Where they'll pick one, and, if they accept, hope they made the best choice out of the pot. In that case the developer will be working on whatever terms & time constraints they're given, and may only be doing it to be working/making money. A lot of movie tie-ins go sorta like that.

Our friends at JAGEX dropped by to let us know they have posted some of their footage from last year's NYCC. Be sure to check out JAGEX at BotCon later this month where they will be showing off the Transformers: Universe MMO. Video embedded below.

The Transformers Universe team will be at BotCon on the 26th April. To give an insight into what's in store here is a video from the last ComicCon with our special presenter, Jessica Nigri!

nice of them to show us videos from october featuring very little info on the game.
i may well play this in the end, but it's not the Transformers MMO I'm looking for. Granted, the game I'd want would cost millions of Dollars, if recent reports are anything to go by.
assembling a Neo-G1/TF:TM cast. Please PM if you have (or know of) the following at a reasonable price: Classics or Henkei Astrotrain, Sunstreaker, Sideswipe, Blurr, or 3rd Party iGear Ratchet and Ironhide.
Also looking for Universe Repugnus and Overbite, Frostbite and Longhorn and any Webdiver toys.
