ACTIVISION PUBLISHING, INC. AND PLATINUMGAMES INC. CHANGE THE FIGHT IN TRANSFORMERS: DEVASTATION
New action-brawler video game lets fans experience the TRANSFORMERS like never before
SANTA MONICA, Calif. – June 16, 2015 – Activision Publishing, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Activision Blizzard, Inc. (NASDAQ: ATVI), today announced it is teaming up with acclaimed development studio PlatinumGames Inc. to release a groundbreaking new game starring the TRANSFORMERS Generations characters. Based on Hasbro’s colossal entertainment franchise, TRANSFORMERS: Devastation is a third-person action-brawler game with a breathtaking comic book-inspired visual style.
Forged with PlatinumGames’ gift for fast-paced action and mesmerizing art design, TRANSFORMERS: Devastation harnesses the unique abilities of its heroes to convert from robot to vehicle form to extraordinary effect. In this incredibly dynamic, combo-fueled experience, players battle as one of five AUTOBOTS – OPTIMUS PRIME, BUMBLEBEE, SIDESWIPE, WHEELJACK and GRIMLOCK. Throughout the game, players unlock new skills, forge new weapons, and augment their characters to battle against the vicious DECEPTICONS, including MEGATRON and the powerful combiner DEVASTATOR.
PlatinumGames utilizes cel-shaded artwork to create contemporary versions of the bold, brightly colored designs of the original TRANSFORMERS characters. The game features a story inspired by the IDW comic book universe and includes the talents of legendary voice actors like Dan Gilvezan as BUMBLEBEE, Frank Welker as MEGATRON and SOUNDWAVE, Gregg Berger as GRIMLOCK, and Peter Cullen as OPTIMUS PRIME.
TRANSFORMERS: Devastation is expected to arrive later this year on the PlayStation®4 and PlayStation®3 computer entertainment systems, Xbox One, the all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft, the Xbox 360 games and entertainment system from Microsoft, and Windows PC via Steam.

@KORNdog: sssst, if you say here that the Switch doesn't sell well, you get butchered... (2 Hours ago)
@aphex187: if i was in the market to play MS's "exclusives" at this point i'd definitely build a PC to access them. especially if you're looking for graphical superiority. (3 Hours ago)
@KORNdog: If you are a pc gamer and fancy a console then PS4 is the only real option to take. Absolutely pointless me buying an XBOX when all their exclusives come to pc anyway. (3 Hours ago)
like, i expected switch especially to be taking way more wins per month than it has done. i thought it was flying off shelves? (3 Hours ago)
@alimokrane: also, about NPD. how is PS4 STILL having their best sales month in may 5 years after launch and still being the best selling console? (3 Hours ago)
That's sales in the US according to NPD. The same has been the case for Sea of Thieves so MS game sales are clearly not affected by game pass at all... (3 Hours ago)
So State of Decay 2 sold twice as many physical copies as State of decay 1 even though it's available with game pass.... MS has to be very happy with that not to mention digital sales are not included (3 Hours ago)
