In een interview met IGN vertelde producent Lorenzo di Bonaventura dat een vijfde en zesde Transformers-film helemaal niet zeker is. Dit ondanks dat het vijfde deel in de franchise al aangekondigd is en er al gesproken is over hoe Age of Extinction het begin kan zijn van een tweede trilogie.

“We’re not planning on doing a trilogy. We’re not not planning on doing a trilogy. It’s really a one-movie-at-a-time philosophy. It feels a little arrogant. Both [director Michael Bay] and I feel like it’s a little arrogant of us to presume success each time. We know our fans are really out there and they’re going to come, so we presume a certain amount of success. But all the energy will be thrown into the next movie, if we’re lucky enough to get there.”

Di Bonaventura ging verder: “I think one of the things that people underestimate about the Transformers mythology is how rich it is. If you actually look at the bible, if you would, there is an enormous number of characters; there’s a helluva lot of storylines, etcetera. Honestly, there’s been no discussion of it because we’ve been in the business of making it bigger and bigger. I think a lot of those spinoffs tend to happen when something’s plateaued. We’re not at that place yet, hopefully. We’re going to find out with the audience.”
