Transformers is not NetDevil’s secret MMO

A couple of days ago, we mentioned that developer NetDevil, creator of Auto Assault, is making a new game for a major toy company. Moments after that, the rumor spread like crazy among MMORPG enthusiasts and some even speculated that the new game could be Transformers.

When you really think about it, Transformers fit the previous requirements pretty well. First, the Autobots and Decepticons were created by Hasbro – definitely a major U.S. toy company. Also, the previous reports also mentioned in-game crafting and designing for the general public. Lastly, there’s a new movie about it coming up. Puzzle solved? Sorry, but not really.

In a recent interview, NetDevil CEO Scott Brown reiterated, with a straight face if we may add, that the new game is not Transformers. After that he wouldn’t divulge anything more about the game and moved on with other topics. The official then freely spoke about their FPS title in the works for the PC. He revealed that they’ve been wanting to do this ever since Auto Assault. Epic’s Unreal Engine 3 graphics engine and the AGEIA physics processor have continued to fascinate him and his company, he added.

Mr. Brown also hinted that they are also planning to enter the console arena. He admitted that there have been serious talks about this course of action but they are not planning to leave the PC platform entirely. He promised, finally, that everything will become clear later in 2007.

And so the guessing game for this mysterious MMO continues. But we honestly hoped it was Transformers…
