Transformers: Rise of the Dark Spark game from Activision (2014)

Motto: "Till All Are Pun!"
Thanks to video game website Nintendo Life, we've been pointed in the direction of a very interesting Amazon.co.uk listing - Activision's Transformers: Rise of the Dark Spark. Several listings have appeared, including releases for the Wii U, Nintendo 3DS, XBox One and PS4, but not much more information than a brief marketing blurb of the game, and we have no idea whether this will be connected to the Age of Extinction film. Check out what the listings have to say about it below and click here for an overview of the listings.

UPDATE: The listings appear to have now been removed.

Product Description
The next installment in the incredible Transformers gaming franchise, Transformers: Rise of the Dark Spark is an exciting action game that is perfect for veteran fans and newcomers.

Sadly High Moon studios will not be behind this one, or will have a lower quality as a lot of high moon employees were laid off after the Deadpool...
I have no hope for this game (maybe i'm wrong). :BANG_HEAD:

And: NO PC??? :michaelbay:

Jon's linked article also mentioned it being on Xbox 360 and PS3 too. :-? Hopefully this means I have more time to wait for a Halo Edition of the Xbox One...

[sarcasm]Gee, wonder why.[/sarcasm] :roll:

In regards to the Deadpool game, it was a good game for Deadpool fans. But as a game itself... it was bad. Not good at all. Abandoned Fall of Cybertron to redirect all effort for a pretty bad game. >:oP

If this is the next continuity successor to Fall of Cybertron, I have only one possible idea for what its story could be.

In the Covenant of Primus book (and maybe in the new Retribution novel--I wouldn't know since I still haven't gotten to read it yet), there is a paragraph that talks about some of the events that happened on Cybertron long after the Ark and Nemesis left into space, one of which talks about how Shockwave captured Alpha Trion and used him along with Vector Sigma in a twisted experiment attempting to artificially create an evil counterpart to the Matrix of Leadership, one based on Dark Energon.

I could see this game using that plotline as a basis and structuring its story around the attempts of the Wreckers and the Dinobots trying to stop Shockwave and destroy the Dark Energon Matrix.

I really hope that this has similarities to Fall of Cybertron. That was a good game. If it is geared to Transformers AOE, which i highly doubt, It better have good gameplay!

I was waiting for news like this.

To bad High Moon won't be doing the game. They have some good experience and Fall Of Cybertron's a great game.

Hopefully the studio that's going to develop this game, will look very close to the FOC game and not try any funny business like ROTF. Constantly driving made me :SICK: in that game, but overall it was pretty good.

I think it would be connected to the movie, since it'll be probaby launched around the time the movie comes out.

Tf has huge gaming potential. FOC was terrific, and yet there's so much more that could be added. Multiplayer was amazing, but I always want more, like minicons, combiners, etc.

I hope this has to do with the first 13 Primes, as like a prequel or something. Also, I wish they would just make an open world game on Cybertron.

Based on the title and what we know of the Thirteen's story, I'm not sure what this "Dark Spark" could pertain to related to the Thriteen.

Though, I think the chances of them making a Thirteen game are slim to none since, to the general public, the Thirteen are obscure nobodies that more than likely aren't very profitable. Big names like Optimus and Megatron and their ilk are what the casual folks want, and thus are what sell. The Thirteen would only appeal to the most diehard of diehard fans, who are such a niche market to cater to that there's be little commercial gain from making such a game.

Not sure why some people are jumping to the conclusion that High Moon won't be developing this. The studio still exists and Activision haven't got that many in-house studios who aren't working on Call of Duty. The only two I can think of off the top of my head are High Moon and Raven.

I'd be very surprised if this was in any way related to the new movie. If it was then why not call it Age of Extinction? Even if it's not a direct adaptation, surely they'd still call it Age of Extinction: All About Bumblebee or something. They'd potentially lose out on sales not naming it after the film. Sabrblade's theory sounds pretty sound. ;)

Um WTF? Is this like a cross over between movie and Aligned, or is WFC/FOC suddenly the prequel to AOE,a nd will ignore all previous movies?

It does say two worlds collide, which could mean a crossover, but also simply that the Transformers land on Earth.

Will reserve judgement till we get actual information on this.

Yeah, that was... mind-boggling.

People already have a hard time accepting WFC/FOC as being connected to TF: Prime. But now if there's some sort of connection with the even more-different-looking AOE...

GUGH! This game's gonna make all kinds of headaches if there isn't any dimension-hopping involved. :HEADHURTS:

OMG OMG OMG!!!

So it is High Moon that's making the game? Since FOC is their franchise and all.

I saw the movie Optimus with a Pathblaster from FOC.

So the gameplay will be as good as the same as FOC???

YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS

I'm psyched, if it's on PS4, I'll buy the thing, just for this game!
