And now everyone is sad.
The official Transformers TCG website, along with their support page and social media channels now carries a message explaining that Titan Masters Attack is the last new release for the game. The card game developed a very devoted, passionate following since its launch in summer of 2018. Unfortunately that seems not to have been enough, as they cite failure to bring in more of the fan base to the game, as well as obstacles caused by the COVID-19 pandemic leading to this outcome.
For over two years, Wizards of the Coast has worked to create a great action TCG brand with the Transformers TCG. While the retailer and player community continued to grow, our product offerings didn’t meet the expectations of the broader fan base to engage further with the brand. Additionally, the current global situation posed by the COVID-19 pandemic presented additional hurdles. As such, Titan Masters Attack released on May 29, is the game’s final TCG release.
We are informing our players and retailers so they can make the best decisions regarding event participation and product ordering.
The Transformers TCG team wishes to recognize the tremendous effort that fans and retailers put into building a great community.
“The Transformers TCG was truly a labor of love for the Wizards team, and we saw that enthusiasm and love echoed by players across the world,” said Drew Nolosco, Wizards of the Coast Global Brand Manager. “We are grateful to our fans, content creators, retailers, and distributors for the enthusiasm they brought to the game. The greater Transformers TCG fan community is perhaps the best TCG community I’ve had the privilege of working with.”
‘Til all are one.
This announcement didn’t seem to be a surprise to everyone; news and reveals for the game, which at its height were coming what felt like every few days, had seemed to slow down considerably over recent months. The writing may have been on the wall for a while, with everyone involved trying to figure out a way to keep the game going before finally announcing the bad news.
Though within the immediate RFC group there was never more than a casual interest in the game, we’re saddened for the loss of what had become for many a very important extension of their hobby. Transformers needs more new, different things like this, and we hope that the TCG having to come to an end after only two years doesn’t hurt the possibilities of future outside the box experimentation.
