The future of the Transformers franchise is being mapped out for the next decade. Hasbro’s Steven J. Davis announced during a Q&A that Transformers 5, 6, 7, and 8 are in the works.
”You’re going to see a new Transformers movie coming from Hasbro and Paramount and Michael Bay and our other partners,” he said. “In fact, we just finished, as some of you may have read, just an incredible experience. We decided that we wanted to plot out the next 10 years of the Transformers franchise, so we got together in a room over a three-month period of time.”
By “we,” Davis was referring to a group of screenwriters who got together to hash out plans for the franchise moving forward. He explained, “Nine of some of the most creative writers I have ever worked with, shepherded by Akiva Goldsman, who many of you may know won an Academy Award for A Beautiful Mind and [has] written a bunch of great movies. And they plotted out the next 10 years of Transformers. Similarly, we are doing the same in television and in digital. So stay tuned, Transformers 5 is on its way, and 6 and 7 and 8.”

Transformers: Age of Extinction was the first step in developing the post-Shia LaBeouf universe. Bay helmed the installment, which starred Mark Wahlberg, Jack Reynor, and Nicola Peltz in a story that introduced dinobots into the cinematic space.
Bay tweeted in September that he was not confirmed to return for the fifth Transformers film, though Davis seemingly confirmed his involvement in some capacity.
