Matt Tieger was interviewed by the folks over at Current. As we all know, Tieger is the War For Cybertron Game Director. Check out some extra tidbits of information below!

UGDB: Will we hear any recognizable music from the franchise? Lion? Stan Bush?

Matt Tieger: I am excited to say that our music was composed by Tyler Bates from the Watchmen and the 300. He was awesome to work with and brought a lot of enthusiasm to the project. There will also be some other nice little surprises for Transformers fans…

UGDB: How about voice actors? We know that Peter Cullen is returning as Optimus Prime, are any other original voice actors making a reprise for Transformers: War for Cybertron? Have the new voice actors lived up to the legacy of their predecessors?

Matt Tieger: We worked with Hasbro and selected a compliment of great voice actors. Sound is a key component to a Transformers game, so this was something we spend a lot of time on. We had to get it right. All the voices, other than Peter, are new to Transformers and they nailed it.



If you're unfamiliar with Tyler's work, he's worked on 300 and The Watchmen. You'll find the rest of the interview over at Current.

Very interesting, I hope the new voices match the characters well. Also, I remember hearing a while back that Dr. Cox was voicing Thundercracker, is that still going on or was that a false rumor? Because I thought it was awesome.

I'm pretty sure that was for the War for Cybertron game.

Yes, but if i'm correct, that article came on April 1st, so take that with a grain of salt maybe....Though i will admit, it would be kinda funny to see John in a training sort of role, telling you "pick it up newbie".

Yes, Johnny himself confirmed that he was voicing Bumblebee in WFC:

Tyler Bates is scoring the game, eh? Sounds interesting, I'm looking forward to hearing that. Perhaps we'll be able to purchase the soundtrack? Maybe? Please? :grin:

This is great news! We get to hear new talent, freshen the soil of voice roles in Transformers and best of all, really annoy overweight 30 year old virgins who want it to be exactly like it was 26 years ago!
