Hoping to demystify this game's history, Tformers recently had an opportunity to ask Jagex's David Nicholson, VP of Transformers Universe some questions about it. Unfortunately, their answers only confused things more with switching the mode of the game AGAIN for the third time from MMO, to MOBA, and what they are now calling a MOTA (Massively Online Tactical Action Game). We also learn that game is set in the Prime continuity with others to be included. Read on for the full Q&A.
