Well, their not getting my money unless online multiplayer improves considerably. I was in awe of the graphics, storyline and new character designs in WfC, but multiplayer was/is terrible

personally i wonder where the story will go since wfc pretty much ran directly into the 1st g1 episode

unless the fix the mp problems that plagued the original i cant see it being much of a success but at least we might get more than 4 new molds dedicated to the characters

Its not like Hasbro really cares abaout continuity of its products too much as long as it sells and it appeases the majority of the fan base(IE parents and children) thier happy.

They occasionally throw the hard core collector fan base a bone to chew on, but thats about it really.

I hope that with this there is a longer story mode, the character DLC upgrades which you buy to be available in the main game and a little more variaty(maybe a sea based/underwater mission or a minicon mission where you have to sneak in to the enemy base and snipe the enemy out buy transforming in to a sniper scope). Also allow more colour customisation.

Also I hope they dont tit around with the international releases like they did for WFC 1 and actually release it to the stores on the day of release and not suddenly realise people want to buy it over the counter nearly a month after its released.

Also, store exclusives = great if you advertise them and let people know what they are.

Aside from the obvious when/what/who/etc. questions, I'm curious as to what sort of plot storyline this game will involve. The first game ended on them preparing to leave Cybertron. The Prime comic and cartoon are supposed to follow afterward. So, maybe this game has them coming back to Cybertron after the Earth conflict calms down?

Though, if the characters in the first game who later appear in the show suddenly revert back to their first-game bodies, there better be some explanation given. I don't think we'll want another case of "Exodus conflicts with WFC" again.

Or maybe it's some kind of side story set within the first game's events or in-between episode seasons.

Or maybe War For Cybertron is in itself its own continuity just like all the other Transformers games?

I dont see why people get so fixated about conituity some times in what is essentially one big toy advertisement, its almost as bad as talking to Trekkie some times(or are the Trekkers nowadays?).

The only francise I can think of that even comes close to having a unified coninuity is Serinty(firefly) or Babylon 5.

Enjoy the games for what they are. Ive played Transformers Armada, Transformers Tataki, ROM version Beast wars 2 beat em up on game boy, Transformers war for cybertron on ps3, TF animated on DS, War for cybertron autobots on DS and the ROM version of the transformers NES game and the TF bay movie games and to be honest even with WFC it has huge Gen 1 continuity problems with its story, character apperances, characterisation, etc.

Just enjoy them for what they are, alittle esacpism.

Awesome! I love WFC and I hope that WFC2 will be just as good, if not better.

And hopefully this also means we get more WFC figs!

But it ain't like all the other games. War for Cybertron serves as the foundation for Hasbro's new "aligned continuity". The Exodus novel expands on its story, and the Prime cartoon continues it. We can't change what is confirmed as fact.

Good, hopefully this will give whatever game studio ends up making the game a chance to fix all of the glaring technical problems that plagued the first War for Cybertron.

I wanted so bad to enjoy War for Cybertron and I did to some extent, but the horrible bugs, network and online gaming issues, etc just made me quit the game in frustration. There was so much potential in that game that the final product was never more than a disappointment.

WfC isn't part of G1. Jetfire and Trypticon could tell you that.

This. They need to fix a lot of stuff if they want my $60 this time.

Also, I'm actually kind of surprised there's a sequel. Last we heard, which was way back in, what, July? The game only sold a measly 200,000 copies. Usually when a game does that poorly, they don't give it a sequel. Which is why we still haven't seen Psychonauts 2.

I hope it has somthing to do with their very last days on Cybertron. I hope you get to see some actual Cybertronian cities and part of their culture. In WFC there was nothing. Just caves and the center of the planet. I hope it has somthing to do with Decepticon depression and liberating the remaining Cybertronians from it. Trying to get them to flee the planet before somthing happens.

WFC 2 is awesome news, but honestly I'm more interested in the MMO mentioned. I'm assuming this is the Asian MMO we've heard about. I would be pleased if they used the Asian release to work out the bugs in a way similar to what they did with Aion- which, by the time it reached American and European shores, was a very smooth, polished and detailed game with nearly infinite character customization. If this is the real deal and it's not just a rumor, my WoW account may disappear :x
