Activision released several Transformers games during the Xbox 360 era that are now no longer purchasable digitally due to licensing issues.
However, now, following the imminent deal which would see Microsoft own Activision, Hasbro is hopeful this could spark a revival.
During an interview with Transformers World, the Habsro team said: “Sadly, apparently Activision’s not sure what hard drives they’re on in their building. When a company eats a company that eats a company things get lost, and that’s very frustrating.
“Hope is that now that the deal is moving forward with Microsoft and Xbox they’ll go through all of the archives and every hard drive to find it all because it’s an easy Game Pass add. We want those games back up for people to have a chance to play.”
Currently, Transformers: Devastation, Transformers: Fall of Cybertron, Transformers: Rise of the Dark Spark, and Transformers: War for Cybertron are currently unavailable for purchase digitally. Some of the games can be played on Xbox consoles via backward compatibility, but a physical disk is required.
Transformers: Reactivate will tell an original story in which players take control of “some of their favourite characters; unique, weighty, and powerful, seamlessly converting between vehicle and bot form as they battle The Legion; the greatest threat the Autobots have ever faced”.
