You are going to see a new Transformers movie coming from Hasbro and Paramount and Michael Bay and our other partners. In fact we just finished, which some of you may have read, just an incredible experience, we decided we wanted to plot out the next ten years of the Transformers franchise. So we got together in a room over a three month period of time with nine of some of the most creative writers I had ever worked with shepherded by Akiva Goldsman, who many of you may know won an Academy Award for Beautiful Mind and written a bunch of really great movies, and they plotted out the next ten years of Transformers. Similarly, we are doing the same in television and in digital. So stay tuned. Transformers 5 is on its way… and Transformers 6 and Transformers 7 and 8.

Transformers 5 (directed by Michael Bay) is currently listed for a release in 2017 by IMDB. So would Transformers 6 get released in 2020 and transformers 7 in 2023, then Transformers 8 in 2026?
Will Director Michael Bay come back for 6, 7, and 8? Well, I think likely that a new director will take over the franchise, but time will tell.
Anyway, stay tuned with us for more details about those new Transformers movies!
