Recently the continuity of Transformers Prime and it’s relation to the recent War for Cybertron game and Exodus book was brought into question. 2005 Boards memeber Oracle_Aesir sent an email to Hasbro UK asking if Transformers Prime and WFC were in the same continuity, and they replied with a simple:
Our Marketing Team confirm that they are separate.
This threw fans for a loop, because Hasbro reps told 2005 staff at San Diego Comic-Con that War for Cybertron was in fact a prequel of sorts to the Transformers Prime TV show. As seen here.
Well, today we recieved a message from Hasbro representatives again, this time from their official marketing firm based in the US. They clearly stated the following:A question was recently posed to Hasbro’s UK office asking if the Transformers Prime television series and the Transformers War for Cybertron video game were in a connected continuity. Unfortunately the wrong answer was delivered and that answer has made its way to the fan community. The TRANSFORMERS brand team would like to confirm that Transformers War for Cybertron video game, Transformers Exodus novel, and the Transformers Prime television show are in the same aligned continuity. Hasbro is creating a single continuity to tell the bulk of our TRANSFORMERS stories going forward.
So there you have it. Transformers War for Cybertron, Transformers Exodus, and Transformers Prime are officially within one continuity.
Have fun figuring that all out on the 2005 boards in our Transformers Prime discussion forum!
