Transformers: Fall of Cybertron coming to PC

Transformers: Fall of Cybertron is getting a PC version after all, with a port being handled by Mercenary Games. It will release alongside the console versions later this year.

Update: High Moon Studios responds with more information on the PC developer.

Despite some doubts and trepidation, Transformers: Fall of Cybertron will come to PC after all. High Moon had previously expressed doubts that it had the skills needed to handle a PC port. "I know that it's not a huge leap to do a PC SKU, but it is different," said game director Matt Tieger. "It's outside of our area of expertise, to be honest."

The PC version is being ported by Mercenary Technology, not Mercenary Games as announced by Activision's press release. According to their official website:

Mercenary Technology is a professional video game development and consulting studio founded in 2010 by industry veterans. Our mission is to create well crafted, polished and innovative games. Having worked for many companies and on many games, our founders decided we needed to be independent to achieve our goals. Mercenary Technology is the result.

Their portfolio includes The Sly Collection, as well as a variety of Spider-Man and Lord of the Rings games. Transformers: Fall of Cybertron is slated to launch on August 28 on all platforms.

      Holly shit! This is awesome and funny at the same time, first just want to say I can not wait to play it on the PC.

      It was funny how they where down playing how hard it was to dev on the PC and what ever other excuses they had, they probably realize that deving on the PC now is hot and everyone is doing it and making money too.

      Hope those dudes who port it have skillz either way I am very happy right now it will be on the PC, great news.

      Woot now they get to fuck us over again by never doing a PC patch or DLC and leaving the game to die 20 seconds after its sold on the pc.

      Yes, but NO 30fps cap plz..that is just terrible for PC games (even tho there was a unofficial fix for it eventually)

      Oh..and the first game still isnt availible to australians on steam.
