The Division 3 Confirmed to be in Development by Ubisoft Division 3: A Risky Proposition for Ubisoft’s Future My Hero Ultra Rumble – A New Battle Royale Game Based on My Hero Academia Phantom Blade: Executioners Brings Fast-Paced Dark Fantasy Action to PlayStation and PC This November Spider-Man 2 Release Update As Launch Draws Near

With the impending completion of Microsoft’s acquisition of Activision Blizzard, many gaming franchises stand to benefit. While attention often focuses on major series like Call of Duty and Diablo, the merger could also revive another beloved franchise: Transformers.

Though Activision only published the Transformers games, not developed them, the company holds the rights to titles like War for Cybertron, Fall of Cybertron, and Transformers Devastation. These games were created by independent studios like High Moon Studios and PlatinumGames.

According to a recent interview in Transformers World 2005, Hasbro is eager to see these Transformers games re-released and added to Xbox Game Pass. They also want to bring movie tie-in games to the platform. However, there’s one major obstacle – the original game data may be lost.

The Struggle to Locate the Original Game Data

As Hasbro explained, Activision is unsure which hard drives contain the data needed to re-release the games. When large companies acquire other companies, things often get lost in the shuffle.

Hopefully, as part of the merger, Microsoft will thoroughly search Activision’s archives to locate the game data. The Transformers franchise remains popular, especially with the new Rise of the Beasts film arriving this summer. Fans would surely welcome the chance to play these classic games again.

What Could Come Next for Transformers Games?

If the original data is found, we may see Game Pass re-releases of titles like War for Cybertron and Fall of Cybertron. Additionally, Microsoft could leverage the IP to develop new Transformers exclusives. However, nothing concrete can happen until the merger fully finalizes.

For now, the fate of these Transformers games remains unclear. Recovering the data would delight fans and demonstrate how consolidation can sometimes unearth classic gems. We can only hope Activision’s hard drives still hold these cybernetic adventures.
