On the heels of the demise of the Transformers Collectible Card Game that had been available from Hasbro owned Wizards of the Coast for the past 2 years (2018-2020), it looks like a new contender may be on the horizon to offer Transformers related gaming products along with G.I. Joe and My Little Pony. Renegade Game Studios have announced today a new licensing partnership to expand their gaming products into the aforementioned brands. This is in addition to their already successful games using the Power Rangers. Check out the official press release below.
