Machinima and Hasbro announced today that they are developing the final two installments of their Transformers Prime Wars animated series. It all started with Transformers: Combiner Wars, which was pretty awesome and worth checking out if you haven’t seen it yet.
The two final chapters of the trilogy that they are developing are called Transformers: Titans Return and Transformers: Power of the Primes. According to the press release, the first sequel, Transformers: Titans Return, “will take the action of the series to new ‘heights,’ and feature return appearances from many fan-favorite Transformers characters as well as introduce new Autobots and Decepticons. Set in the period following the excitement of Transformers: Combiner Wars, the depleted forces of Cybertron and a broken Council of Worlds must now face-off against a new threat that is larger than anything that has come before.”
There are no details on the third chapter, but I’m sure they’ll come in due time. Machinima CEO Chad Gutstein had this to say in a statement:
“The global fan base has really embraced this vision of the Transformers, and we are thrilled to be working closely with Hasbro developing the next two installments of the series.”
Stephen Davis, Chief Content Officer of Hasbro, added:
“Transformers has always been fueled by the brand’s rich, compelling characters and storylines, and Transformers: Combiner Wars tapped into that lore to offer fans a truly unique and new digital-first story for the franchise. Following the success of the first series, we are excited to announce this continued collaboration with Machinima and believe Transformers fans will be thrilled to see the story continue to unfold.”
Hasbro and Machinima are teaming back up with Transformers: Combiner Wars executive producer and showrunner Eric Calderon, who will oversee the development of the final two installments of the Prime Wars trilogy.
Transformers: Combiner Wars is available to watch on a wide variety of platforms, including go90 (United States), SkyQ (U.K.), AMC Iberia (Spain and Portugal), Sohu (China), and YouTube (rest of world). Since it was released in August, the series has been viewed 120 million times.
