Transformers: Fall of Cybertron, the successor to the critically acclaimed War for Cybertron is ‘rolling out’ to consoles in 2012. The upcoming game details the final, darkest hours of the civil war between the Autobots and Decepticons as they fight for control of their dying planet, ultimately resulting in their exodus.

David Oxford, Executive Vice President at Activision Publishing said, “Transformers: Fall of Cybertron is an extraordinary project both for the studio and the Transformers gaming legacy – the stakes are higher and the scale much larger than ever before, and we absolutely cannot wait for fans to see all the new characters and epic action that awaits them.”

While details on the game remain sparse, Activision and Hasbro promise a fully original storyline that details the climactic battles leading to the famed exodus of the Transformers characters from Cybertron and will astound fans of the series.
