Remember guys, as far as Alex Irvine, Highmoon, and the TF: Prime team are concerned, they are working on separate projects. It is Hasbro drawing the lines between the three. FoC will probably have as much relation to Exiles and TF: Prime as WfC had with Exodus and TF: Prime.
That's what I'm hoping for. Despite their differences, WFC and Exodus told the same basic story. I want FoC and Exiles to do the same.

Wouldn't read all that much into the pictures. The two different representations of Optimus would lend creedence to the notion that these are just concept images. I'll be surprised if this is anything besides more of the same.

Wonder if they'll release anything for Nintendo. The last few games Wii were okay at best but extremely dissapointing when compared to the other versions.Seriously make Transformers game were they don't transform (Wii ROTF and Cybertron rail shooter) or "Stealth force edition" which looks and plays like a minigame/sidequest that should have been included in the other versions. Like Arkham city ,i believe that a Wii U port will be announced any second now. Wonder if special ports of Arkham asylum and War for Cybertron will come to Wii U? Hopefully 3DS will get something good.

I really hope they do a PC release of this one as well. Have WFC on PC and love the game and would love to get to put my new vid card to good use for this game. Plus I really like the control setup for WFC when using the mouse/keyboard. Of course since I don't have a PS3 or Xbox 360 that they may also be a huge factor why I am hoping there is a PC release. ;)

I'm okay ret-coning Grimlock into the game and history. Gives his character more depth. But having a dino on Cybertron is awkward. I hope they use him as a vehicle with a bonus DLC of dino mode = makes sense.
