War for Cybertron a prequel, set for 2010

The new Transformers game has been confirmed to be a prequel story taking place on Cybertron — hence the clever title, Transformers: War for Cybertron, that we learned about yesterday. GameInformer will be doing a six-page reveal of the Activision-published title in their January issue but there are a few bits and pieces of information available now alongside the teaser trailer above, like that the game’s focusing on the conflict on the Transformers homeworld and that it doesn’t tie into any movie or cartoon, hopefully giving developer High Moon Studios some freedom to explore and deliver on new ideas.

War for Cybertron is penned for a 2010 release.
