Default 2019 Transformers Movie could be a new universe

At the European Licensing trade show in October, Hasbro have announced that the 2019 Movie will "unveil an entirely new, exciting storyline for Transformers"... and doesn't note it being TF6 or TF7, or any number in the series.

This doesn't necessarily mean that the Bumblebee movie is the last one in the Bay-verse, as the 2019 could be the one that had once been noted as being an offshoot or CG movie.
Then again, the Bumblebee movie could make sense as a reboot movie, or a partial reboot like X-men and Star Trek, with the timeline being reset, allowing future movies start fresh without all the contradictions of the first five.

The link above has scans from the Hasbro brochure about Transformers, which has some other details about how the brand has been doing in Europe, and what licensed merchandise we can expect in 2018 (that could show up here as well).

That's certainly an interesting way of wording it.

I expect there will be a lot of 'now they can do a transformers movie right' proclamations across the interwebs.

As much as I've enjoyed these movies for what they are and I've generally really enjoyed the toys from the movie lines. If they do restart/design these movies to have more of a traditional transformers Aesthetic with less jaggedy edges I will be pretty excited and happy.

^Totally this

The only thing that would slightly disappoint me is not seeing where they will be going with the Unicron angle - it would be nice for the movies to have some closure and after having the storyline going for a decade some kind of final resolution.

I agree with this as well... I mean, just look at how organic the robots have been getting with each movie, with almost no vehicle kibble at all now. The first movie had vehicle bits all over the bots, to be able to guess what it turned into for most of them with Earthen modes, but now... who could tell on any of the bots in the last couple of movies.
It's supposed to be robots *in* disguise, not robots disguising what they turn into.
It certainly makes the toy designers jobs a lot harder, resulting in more panels, shells and/or backpacks of kibble... or robot modes that don't look much like the ones on screen. (okay, the original series cartoon also had toys that looked different to the cartoon robots, but that was the animators improving the "immobile bricks" of toys - here it is the other way around, with the animators creating the design first, for the toy designers to then somehow replicate).

I do see what you're saying. It is a bit of a bombshell to drop and then just leave it hanging, but I've got to say that Michael Bay leaving the franchise is all the resolution I need

Yeah he says every movie that its his last and he wont be director for the next one - I wouldn't count my protoforms before they've hatched
