Pokemon GO developer Niantic is working on a new Augmented Reality (AR) game based on the popular movie franchise Transformers. The new game is titled ‘Transformers: Heavy Metal’ and it will be based on a similar concept as other games like Ingress, Harry Potter: Wizards Unite from the developer.
Niantic has partnered with Hasbro and TOMY to develop its next real world AR game. According to the official blog post, the game is still under development and details about Transformers: Heavy Metal is pretty scarce right now. However, the official website of the game is now live where users can register themselves to get more information about the game.
Niantic has only revealed that players will be able to team up with iconic characters of the franchise like Bumble Bee in the real-world.
The official mentions that the game will enter a soft launch and the beta will be available to test in select markets soon.
Meanwhile, Niantic has already confirmed that the Transformers: Heavy Metal will launch globally in the fourth quarter of 2021.
