Hasbro is currently attending the MIPTV Conference 2016 in France along with Machinima to promote their upcoming shows. Last year we heard about the possible series length of the Transformers: Robots In Disguise series during the same conference and this year the spotlight is on Transformers: Combiner Wars.
Thanks to Flickering Myth, we have a transcript of the Digital Fronts session held yesterday.
The series will consist of 8 episodes and will debut in July.
Series Summary (Possible Spoilers):
Taking place 40 years after the great war on Earth, Transformers: Combiner Wars introduces new lore and all-new characters that, combined with the 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?
During the conference it was also stated that the series is geared towards the adults.
Transformers: Combiner Wars is brought to us by famous writers/showrunners Eric Calderon, George Krstic and F. J. Desanto.
