"As humanity picks up the pieces following the conclusion of 'Transformers: Dark of the Moon', Autobots and Decepticons have all but vanished from the face of the planet.
"However, a group of powerful, ingenious businessman and scientists attempt to learn from past Transformer incursions and push the boundaries of technology beyond what they can control all while an ancient, powerful Transformer menace sets Earth in his crosshairs," said a press release by Michigan Film Council, where shooting of the film will begin this year. "Transformers 4" is scheduled to release in June 2014.
