Transformers 5 is all set to break the records set by Transformers: Age of Extinction. Paramount Studios is well aware of the popularity that this franchise enjoys and they are not leaving any stones unturned to make the upcoming film even bigger than the previous one that smashed all box-office records.

In order to give Bay a great script to work on, Paramount has created a writer’s team for Transformers 5. Leading the team of writers is Akiva Goldsman. Goldsman, who is known for Beautiful Mind will have in his team Robert Kirkman, from The Walking Dead, Ken Nolan of Black Hawk Down, Matt Holloway and Art Marcum of Iron Man and Gabriel Ferrari of Ant-Man, to name a few.

They are looking into merchandising and cartoon series to give the fans a more streamlined plot of Transformers.

Transformers: Age of Extinction saw Optimus Prime leaving for space to confront the Quintessons and their plans of destroying earth and the human race. While Optimus Prime leads the show in space, it will be Ultra Magnus who will be doing the same on earth.
According to Inquisitr Transformers 5 will have to distinct plot lines. One will have Optimus Prime facing the Quintessons who are the creators of the Autobots with the help of his second-in-command Ultra Magnus.

Enstarz has confirmed that the rumored beast wars that are supposed to shown in Transformers 5 are true. There were reports that the machines could transform into animal beasts like the ones in Generation 1. Akiva Goldsman has confirmed such a possibility saying that if one of the writers in the writing room feels that there is scope for beast wars then they will go ahead with it and find out ways in which it has been dealt with in other films.
