In a pretty exciting development for Transformers fans around the world, “Netflix” has announced that they are bringing the “War for Cybertron” saga to their streaming service as an original series in 2020. The announcement was made through their official Twitter account:

Funnily enough, there was no mention of this on the official Netflix media portal at the time of this writing.
The War for Cybertron was perhaps brought into the wider mainstream thanks to the games that accompanied the saga a decade ago, with the PSP ports in particular receiving wide acclaim for the graphics fidelity they were able to bring out of Sony’s first handheld console.
Also interesting is the fact that Rooster Teeth, a division of WarnerMedia, is in charge of producing the show, and Polygon Pictures will handle the animation duties. If you don’t know who Polygon Pictures are, you should: based in Japan, they have been in the animation business for over 35 years, and were in charge of the “Star Wars: The Clone Wars” animated TV series, a few “Dead or Alive” games and even a dozen feature films. That’s not a CV to sniff at.
Are you pumped to return to the place where it all begin?
Join us as we prepare for this new journey to Cybertron in the upcoming months.
