Since Microsoft acquired Activision Blizzard there's been lots of talk about what Xbox could effectively 'bring back' from the annals of ActiBlizz history, with Crash, Spyro and Guitar Hero amongst some of the most common suggestions. However, in the background there's always been a little bit of noise about Activision's take on Transformers making its big video game return - the question is, would you like to see it come back?

We bring this up today because, well, it's been 10 years to the day since Activision wrapped up its 'War for Cybertron' series in the form of Transformers: Rise of The Dark Spark. The team did drop Transformers: Devastation the year after, but when it comes to the traditional Transformers games that ActiBlizz fans are yearning for, it's been a whole decade since we've seen one.

Admittedly, Rise of the Dark Spark didnt land quite as well as earlier entries in the War for Cybertron series, especially critically, but there's still a fondness for that series amongst fans. We wouldn't say no to an ActiBlizz Transformers revival - anything that adds a bit of variety to what the company brings to the Xbox portfolio is welcome!

Another wrinkle to this that we'd love to see remedied is the availability of these older Transformers titles. None of the old Activision entries are available digitally anymore, and of course, none are backwards compatible or on Xbox Game Pass either. We get that partnering with a license like this could be hard work in this regard, but still, why not try and get them back and playable for fans in 2024?

As we still hope and pray for that big Activision Blizzard Xbox Game Pass drop to arrive, maybe we can also hope that the team is working on making this sort of stuff compatible with modern platforms. Lots of developers worked extremely hard to develop these games back in the day, and we hope Xbox manages to bring Transformers back in some form down the road.
