The Transformers Trading Card Game has always felt like a sleeper hit, one where everyone seems aware of it, but without it reaching the dazzling heights of those such as Pokemon or Yu-Gi-O. Created by Wizards of Coast, the game has been around for about two years, but has now come with the news that the release of the latest deck 'Titan Masters Attack', on 29 May will have been the last release for the game.
Its statement in full is as follows:
"For over two years, Wizards of the Coast has worked to create a great action TCG brand with the Transformers TCG. While the retailer and player community continued to grow, our product offerings didn’t meet the expectations of the broader fan base to engage further with the brand. Additionally, the current global situation posed by the COVID-19 pandemic presented additional hurdles. As such, Titan Masters Attack released on May 29, is the game’s final TCG release.
We are informing our players and retailers so they can make the best decisions regarding event participation and product ordering. The Transformers TCG team wishes to recognise the tremendous effort that fans and retailers put into building a great community.
“The Transformers TCG was truly a labor of love for the Wizards team, and we saw that enthusiasm and love echoed by players across the world,” said Drew Nolosco, Wizards of the Coast Global Brand Manager. “We are grateful to our fans, content creators, retailers, and distributors for the enthusiasm they brought to the game. The greater Transformers TCG fan community is perhaps the best TCG community I’ve had the privilege of working with.”
‘Til all are one"
We've enjoyed the Transformers CC, even provided a free card with the purchase of the magazine in the past, and it'll be noted as a loss to the community. Whilst we're pleased to see many have endured so far the pressures of COVID-19, it's understandable that it's impacted the normal, which we see here.
