Transformers Universe, the online arena brawler from Jagex Studios, is to shut down just months after going into open beta. The UK-based RuneScape developer will close all servers on January 31st and is in the process of refunding those who purchased founder packs and other premium content.
Announced back in 2011, Transformers Universe had only recently gone into open beta as of July 4th. The closure came as a joint decision by Jagex and Hasbro though neither has cited a definitive reason for cancelling the project.
Game accounts will remain active 60 days after the shutdown in order for staff to deal with customer queries. After that time, all accounts will deleted along with TU’s official forums.
