The lights are on
Update: High Moon Studios, the developer behind Transformers: War for Cybertron and Fall of Cybertron, will not be behind the Rise Of The Dark Spark. Instead, the game is being developed by Edge of Reality.
Edge of Reality worked with BioWare to develop the Wii U version of Mass Effect 3, and helped develop Dragon Age: Origins on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. According to Examiner.com, which spoke with an Activision representative at the NYC Toy Fair, the 3DS version of the game will be an entirely separate tactical RPG game developer by WayForward, which most recently developed DuckTales: Remastered.
Transformers: Rise of the Dark Spark is coming to consoles, PC, and 3DS this year.
The game was announced at the New York City Toy Fair with a trailer, which is currently exclusive to IGN. You can check it out by heading here.
The game will apparently allow players to take on the roles of either Autobots or Decepticons to either save or destroy the world.
Transformers: Rise of the Dark Spark is coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Wii U, Nintendo 3DS, and PC this year.
Our TakeHigh Moon Studios, the developer behind Transformers: War for Cybertron
and Fall of Cybertron, is surprisingly absent from the trailer. It
appears as though it did not develop this title, but we currently don't
know all the details.

Interesting. I probably wont get it, but I would if it actually turned out good.
This game will most likely be a cash grab movie tie in.
Eh, if it's half decent, maybe some noteworthy bargain bin material.
Looks like it blends the High Moon style of the Transformers with the new Bayformer styles, especially with Grimlock. I'm curious to see how this all turns out.
No High Moon, I won't play. Might check out the 3DS version though.
Kind of a shame High Moon isn't developing this since I loved WfC and FoC. I hope this turns out to be just as good though
i want high moon studio to make a new game, a sequel.
I'm more excited for the 3DS version. The fine people of WayForward are some fine developers.
The trailer made absolutely zero sense!!!
ssssssssssssssssss.........***. Damnnit why would you take off a developer behind two really solid games and give it to anyone else? Sigh.....Activision and EA....a match made in hell.
