The Taiwan Software Ratings Board outs the existence of PlayStation 4 and Xbox One ports of both Marvel: Ultimate Alliance games and Transformers: Fall of Cybertron.
Hot off the heels of Marvel Games promising surprises in the coming months, the Taiwan Software Ratings Board may have outed the return of two of the most well-reviewed Marvel-branded games produced. As it turns out, both Marvel: Ultimate Alliance games are apparently being remastered for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
No further information on the Marvel: Ultimate Alliance remasters is available at the time of this writing. However, it's probable that the games will feature visual upgrades at the very least, and possibly all the DLC that released for the games last generation. It's hard to say if the games will feature any additional content or new features, however.
Besides both Marvel: Ultimate Alliance games, the Taiwan Software Ratings Board also outed a current-generation port of another Activision game. Apparently, Transformers: Fall of Cyberton (read our review) is also getting remastered for PS4 and Xbox One, and like the Marvel: Ultimate Alliance games, will probably be getting a visual facelift and bundled with all of its DLC. Fall of Cybertron's predecessor, War for Cybertron, was not listed by the ratings board, strangely enough.
Activision has yet to confirm any of these remasters, but when games are rated by ratings boards, it's rarely by mistake. Activision skipped E3 2016, but if they hadn't, one has to imagine that these projects would have been showcased by the company at the show. In the meantime, it's likely that the Marvel: Ultimate Alliance remasters and the Transformers: Fall of Cybertron remaster will still be given an official confirmation in the coming months.
These games aren't the first Activision titles to be prematurely revealed by ratings boards. In fact, the company seems to have a bigger problem with this issue than most, with its recently released Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles game leaked in a similar fashion months before it received its official announcement. Perhaps Activision should look into preventing this in the future, assuming it's even concerned with keeping these games secret.
Regardless, there are many gamers that are likely excited by the idea of playing the Marvel: Ultimate Alliance games and Transformers: Fall of Cybertron on current-gen consoles. The move to current-gen consoles could rejuvenate the online communities for all three games, and to that end, may also be a way of Activision to test the waters for producing sequels. Anyone interested in replaying these games should keep an eye out for Activision to make an official announcement soon, along with specific release date information.
