Transformers: War for Cybertron turned out to be a darn fun game, which is why you might see a sequel.
A new job listing for a level designer at High Moon Studios might indicate that a follow-up to War for Cybertron is already in the works. It doesn't say anything about the project, although as Now Gamer points out, the new game uses the Unreal engine, as did Transformers . Of course, a whole lot of titles these days use the Unreal engine so that isn't exactly spilling the beans. However, it should be noted that developer High Moon and Transformers license holder Hasbro have recently said they're "in talks with Activision" concerning an expansion of the franchise into more pieces of interactive entertainment. Besides, we're willing to bet the latest effort sold relatively well thanks to solid review scores and good word of mouth; fortunately for many designers in this industry, if they make something worth playing, they're often rewarded. And at this rate, we're willing to have high hopes for anything High Moon does.
If you haven't tried War for Cybertron yet and you're suffering from the summer drought, you really ought to give it a shot. It might surprise you.
