We just wanted to let you know that the rumor you posted regarding the voice actors in Transformers: War for Cybertron is false. We will be providing additional information on voice actors soon. The only confirmed voice actor is Peter Cullen at this time.
Thanks to a War For Cybertron preview by the folks over at AusGamers, an Australian Games Community, we get to know a little bit more about the game. Not only that, but certain voice actors have also been revealed. While we knew that revered voice actor Peter Cullen would be voicing Optimus, his nemesis Megatron will be voiced by James Remar. Starscream will be voiced by Doug Parker, who is familiar with Transformers as he's been the voice for Beast Wars Terrorsaur and Armada/Energon Tidal Wave/Mirage. Lastly a character familiar to those who have followed IDW's Transformers Comics - Optimus's predecessor Zeta Prime will be voiced by the legendary Leonard Nimoy.
