Kabam and Hasbro partnered to create a new mobile game based on the Transformers franchise. The action game was described as an “AAA massively multiplayer” experience, and it will reportedly include role-playing-game and strategy elements.
The Transformers mobile game will allow players to interact with Optimus Prime, Megatron and other characters from the Transformers universe in a “3-D environment.” The game will be developed by Kabam Vancouver, the studio responsible for Fast & Furious: Legacy and Marvel Contest of Champions. Additional gameplay details weren’t revealed.
In a statement, Kent Wakeford, chief operating officer at Kabam, commented:
The Transformers are loved by consumers around the world, and we are thrilled to partner with Hasbro to bring the brand to life with this new mobile game. Kabam strives to develop mobile games that offer players years of entertainment, and the Transformers’ many colorful characters will allow us to deliver on that goal. We are working with Hasbro to create a gameplay experience that fans will want to interact with over and over again.
Kabam’s Transformers mobile game will launch in 2017.
