Hasbro has said it would like to see Microsoft revive Activision’s old Transformers games via Game Pass.
Activision released several Transformers games during the Xbox 360 era, which are now no longer available for purchase digitally due to licensing issues.
But now, after the impending deal that would see Microsoft own Activision, Hasbro is hoping this could spark a revival.
During an interview with Transformers worldthe Habsro team said: “Unfortunately, Activision isn’t sure what hard drives they have in their build. When a company eats a company that eats a company, things get lost and it’s very frustrating.
“The hope is that now that the deal is moving forward with Microsoft and Xbox, they’ll go through every archive and every hard drive to find it all because it’s an easy Game Pass add-on. We want these games backed up, so people get a chance to play.”
Currently, Transformers: Devastation, Transformers: Fall of Cybertron, Transformers: Rise of the Dark Spark, and Transformers: War for Cybertron are not currently available for purchase digitally. Some of the games can be played on Xbox consoles via backwards compatibility, but a physical disc is required.
Transformers: Reactivate, a new co-op action game from Splash Damage, was announced last year.
Transformers: Reactivate will tell an original story where players take control of “some of their favorite characters; unique, weighty and powerful, seamlessly converting between vehicle and bot form as they battle The Legion; the biggest threat the Autobots ever have faced”.
