That may be, but the ending sure seems to be leading to it. The Ark takes off, chased by Decepticons. What's the next logical step? Crashing on Earth.
No. After the ships take off, they go throug ha space bridge and get separated. The Ark detects the presence of the AllSpark and go after it. However, they are still lost in unknown territory, so the Matrix guides them to a nearby planet: Veloctiron. They land there and seek assistance from its locals, while also causing a stir in the planet's politics. After departing Velocitron, they use that planet's own Space Bridge to reach another part of uncharted space, where they come across the second colony world of Junkion. Meanwhile the Nemesis is tracking the Ark, following its trail. And they're not the only ones. A mysterious third faction is also following the Ark's course, hunting for Cybertronians. This group arrives on Velocitron ahead of the Decepticons and causes a riot. After they leave, the Decepticons show up with questions. They leave Velocitron, having no business with it, to chase after the Ark once more. While the Autobots are on Junkion, they have some adventures there until the Cons show up and start an epic battle. Things get chaotic when the planet is ripped apart due to something I will not spoil and the third faction shows up later, who become occupied with the Junkions as the Ark and Nemesis make their escape from the ruined planet.
In other words, planet-hopping.

Not just hinted, but there's a whole book about it.

I said the story seems to lead, not that it does lead. I meant that it is echoing the story. The Ark leaves Cybertron, pursued by the Nemesis, they fight and there is references to Earth. Hmm, where did all that occur? Oh yeah, the first G1 episode. I know this is a different Transformers universe but that part of the story is very G1.
A lot in this game is inspired by G1, yes. Homages abound.
If you've read Exodus, wanna read the War For Cybertron comic? PM me.

This is Sabrblade we're talking about. His ability to store trivial information about TV shows is downright superhuman.
