Hasbro and Machinima's Transformers: Combiner Wars was extremely successful and delivered an epic tale that saw the return of fan favorite characters like Optimus Prime and Starscream, and fans can expect two more entry's in the franchise.
The series has amassed more than 120 million global views, so it makes sense why they would want to greenlight two more series. The first is called Titans Return, which will put an emphasis on the action side of things and will introduce new Autobots and Decepticons to the franchise. It's set not too long after the end of Combiner Wars, where what's left of Cybertron's forces and a broken Council of Worlds must now face an even bigger threat.
"The global fan base has really embraced this vision of the Transformers," said Machinima CEO Chad Gutstein, "and we are thrilled to be working closely with Hasbro developing the next two installments of the series."
"Transformers has always been fueled by the brand's rich, compelling characters and storylines, and Transformers: Combiner Wars tapped into that lore to offer fans a truly unique and new digital-first story for the franchise, stand up" said Stephen Davis, Chief Content Officer of Hasbro. "Following the success of the first series, we are excited to announce this continued collaboration with Machinima and believe Transformers fans will be thrilled to see the story continue to unfold."
The third entry is titled Power of the Primes, but no details are known about it at this time.
You can view the original series synopsis below.
Taking place 40 years after the great war on Earth, the eight-episode digital series introduces new lore and all-new characters that, combined with characters fans have known for decades, will bring the Transformers storytelling in a new direction.
The Autobots and Decepticons have disbanded and returned to Cybertron. With the days of Optimus Prime and Megatron over, Cybertron is now ruled by a triumvirate. However, an ancient technology has enabled a new threat, the power for multiple Transformers to combine into one massive, dangerous form: Combiners. Who will stand up to this threat to ensure that the fragile peace that was 4 million years in the making remains?
