After months and months of speculation, Michael Bay finally confirmed that he would be directing Transformers 5 in a recent interview.

Transformers 5 To Not Feature Humans? 

While speaking to Rolling Stone about his latest release 13 Hours, the director addressed the rumours about his coming on board for the Age of Extinction sequel. While he said he was working on the film, he also revealed that this would be his last Transformers project.

"I'm doing Transformers ... 5, is it? I've taken on a lot of work. ... It's fun to do a movie that 100 million people will see. But this is the last one. I have to pass the reins to someone else. J.J. [Abrams] told me, 'You're the only guy that could do this.' But it's time to move on. One more."

Will Megan Fox Join The Age of Extinction Sequel? 

Previously Mark Wahlberg, who will be reprising his role as Cade Yaeger in the film, had strongly hinted at the fact that Bay will be directing Transformers 5.

In an interview with Collider, Wahlberg was specifically asked if he had any details on the development of the film. The actor stated that he didn't know much, but inadvertently slipped that Bay is very much on board, despite all the rumors about him ditching the franchise that had been swirling about.

"I don't. Just that Akiva [Goldsman] and those guys are starting to write and break stories, and stuff like that," he said. "But [Michael] Bay is in Malta shooting Benghazi, and I'm in New Orleans shooting Deepwater. We'll get together when he gets back."

Transformers: Age of Extinction hit theaters on June 27, 2014.
