In an interview with Transformers World last week, a member of the Hasbro team said it would like to see Microsoft revive Activision‘s old Transformers games via Game Pass.
It claimed, however, that this may not be possible because it believed Activision had lost the hard drives containing the games.
“Sadly, apparently Activision’s not sure what hard drives they’re on in their building,” they suggested. “When a company eats a company that eats a company things get lost, and that’s very frustrating.
“Hope is that now that the deal is moving forward with Microsoft and Xbox they’ll go through all of the archives and every hard drive to find it all because it’s an easy Game Pass add.”
Now, in a statement to VGC, the company has now apologised to Activision, saying the comments were made “in error”.
“To clarify, comments that suggest Transformers games have been lost were made in error,” Hasbro’s official statement reads.
“We apologise to Activision and regret any confusion – they’ve been great partners, and we look forward to future opportunities to work together.”
Currently, Transformers: Devastation, Transformers: Fall of Cybertron, Transformers: Rise of the Dark Spark, and Transformers: War for Cybertron – all of which were published by Activision – are currently unavailable for purchase digitally.
