14 Transformers Stories In Development; Michael Bay Leaving After Last Knight
While particpating in a preview event in London, director Michael Bay let it be known that Transformers: The Last Knight will be his last movie.
Yahoo reports Michael Bay, who was seen sporting a Boba Fett Star Wars shirt, stated he wants Transformers: The Last Knight to be his swan song, which will launch the Transformers universe.
It's reported Bay said fourteen stories have come out of the Transformers writers room. Note: This doesn't mean fourteen new Transformers movies are happening, just that fourteen ideas are being discussed.
One of those ideas which is becoming a movie is the Bumblebee spinoff. It's also been said a possible animated Transformers Cybertron origin movie is in the works, but not much has been said about it for a while. The Bumblebee movie is being directed by Travis Knight for a June 8, 2018 release.

Arthurian prologue (possibly featuring Stanley Tucci as Merlin), scenes including Isabela Moner’s Izabella and Canopy, plus Mark Wahlberg’s Cade Yeager who gets spirited away to Britain by Anthony Hopkins’ Transformer/manservant Cogburn.
