2019 Reboot Confirmed For IDW's Transformers Comics

ICv2 has interviewed IDW's Publisher and President, Greg Goldstein, who has confirmed that the IDW Transformers comics will be rebooted in 2019. Goldstein also addressed speculation that the timing of Unicron was in relation to the renewal of their licensing agreement with Hasbro, reaffirming the strength of the relationship between the two companies. Keep reading for more details!
A couple of quick questions on licenses. You mentioned how you’re wrapping up your Hasbro storyline. Was that done in conjunction with the time for renewal of the license?

Yeah. It's funny, I've seen some commentary on that. We've been in business with Hasbro for 12 years. We love the relationship. They are a great partner. We try to deliver the best possible books month in and month out on not just Transformers, but on GI Joe and on My Little Pony. We had a great Jem and the Holograms series. Jem will be back. They're probably going to say, "Why is Greg pre‑announcing these things?" In any event, no. Sometimes, it's easy to extrapolate incorrect information, so no, the Transformers line and the other titles continue.

It's currently unknown how much input, if any, that any of the current IDW writing, art, and editorial teams will have on the new IDW Transformers universe. With John Barber promoted to Editor in Chief of the entire company, one would imagine his influence would be felt, if not terribly directly. Whoever shapes the new Transformers comics universe, we're looking forward to seeing the shape of it next year.
