2012? Don't most serious MMOs take at least a few years to develop? So basically this is going to be another rushed to market piece of crap attempting to capitalize on a popular brand name. Super.

@Apakal Don't underestimate Jagex's ability to ship. Almost all of the money they've taken in went into development tools, which is why Runescape HD ships easily four or five times as many content updates per year than any other MMO. And working from an established IP, they don't have to do any art design. They need time to model the characters and to rapidly generate an urban setting for them; the rest, they can do as fast as you or I could write pen-and-paper dungeon crawls for D&D.

@Apakal if FF14 proved anything, it's that you can't judge an MMO by it's development time. :-\

Whats to say is not been in development for some time? 'Announcements' don't mean 'they're just starting now'.

And if anyone can do it in that time frame, Jagex certainly could. :)

The world is ending in 2012. Obviously they need to release the game before of that.

I loved transformers as a child, but I'm getting sick of zombie 25 year old plus franchises being constantly remade and pushed out to me.

@Dblade

It's not aimed at you, it's aimed at kids who are the same age you were 25 years ago, it also has to a compete a lot more for children's short attention spans with all the competition around, so its bound to be different!

@maty of course it's for us too, why bother licensing Transformers at all? It's a zombie franchise, trying to cash in on nostalgia out of safety when they could take risks. I mean, we've had what 6-7 different iterations of them so far?

There's a time where people have to stop recycling concepts and start anew.

Obviously Go Bots would have been a far superior choice.

I wonder if this game will have a shapeshifter class.

Okay, we're proving with this announcement that NO IP is safe. Not a single one of them.

Now that we've clarified that, WHERE'S MY BATTLETECH MMO?!

Too right! As much as I like Transformers as an IP, Battletech is absolutely perfect for making into an MMO.

Does this really need to be an MMO? can't this just be a TFC type game?
