Hasbro has apologized for claiming that Activision had lost its Transformers games and that is why they are not on Xbox Game Pass.
In an interview with Transformers world last week a member of the Hasbro team said it would like to see Microsoft revive Activision’s old Transformers games via Game Pass.
However, it claimed that this may not be possible because it believed that Activision had lost the hard drives containing the games.
“Unfortunately, Activision isn’t sure what hard drives they have in their build,” they suggested. “When a business eats a business that eats a business, 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 all the archives and every hard drive to find it all because it’s an easy addition to Game Pass.”
Now, in a statement to VGC, the company has now apologized to Activision, saying the comments were made “in error”.
“To clarify, comments suggesting that Transformers games have been lost were made in error,” Hasbro’s official statement reads.
“We apologize to Activision and regret any confusion – they have been great partners and we look forward to future opportunities to work together.”
Currently, Transformers: Devastation, Transformers: Fall of Cybertron, Transformers: Rise of the Dark Spark and Transformers: War for Cybertron – all of which were published by Activision – are currently unavailable for purchase digitally.
