Paramount has set a June 2022 release date for their new Transformers movie. Currently, Paramount has two different Transformers movies in development, and it’s unclear which one is receiving this new release date. It may be that Paramount has yet to decide which project will move into production, and in the meantime, they want to secure an upcoming date for whichever movie they choose to pursue. Recently, release dates have been shifting in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, and it’s likely in Paramount’s best interest to claim the date they want now before another film gets delayed and takes it.
Following the disastrous performance of Transformers: The Last Knight and the moderate success of Bumblebee, Paramount has been reassessing the future of their Transformers franchise. This has involved developing two different Transformers movies to be the franchise’s next installment. One is reported as a follow-up to 2018’s Bumblebee, while the other is a spinoff based on the Transformers series, Beast Wars.
Per Deadline, Paramount has now selected a date for their new Transformers movie – June 24, 2022. Nothing besides the date has been revealed as this time, but the announcement suggests more information about which Transformers movie they’ve chosen to produce could be revealed soon.
