In a Facebook quote Hasbro have revealed that Steeljaw (the dogfaced car) is the new leader of the Decepticons for the 2015 series Transformers Robots in Disguise. Whether there will be another "bigger leader" revealed later in the series is unknown.

Eagled-eyed fans had already noted that Steeljaw appear in many variations of the Transformers Robots in Disguise toy line, so his appointment as leader is not a total suprise.

Hasbro Inc and Cartoon Network have issued the following joint press release regarding Cartoon Network acquiring the rights to broadcast Transformers: Robots In Disguise worldwide.
Next Series in Beloved Franchise to Air on Cartoon Network Channels in Europe, Latin America, Asia, Africa and the Middle East Following Earlier U.S. Deal
Los Angeles, Jan. 13, 2015 – Cartoon Network has acquired the global rights to start airing the brand new series, TRANSFORMERS: Robots in Disguise, beginning in 2015. The agreement follows Cartoon Network’s previous U.S. deal for the show with Hasbro Studios, the Los Angeles-based entertainment division of Hasbro, Inc. (NASDAQ: HAS). Stephen Davis, Chief Content Officer of Hasbro, Inc., made the announcement today.
“We are thrilled to have expanded our ongoing international relationship with Cartoon Network, freeing them to unleash our Transformers characters to the entire world starting early this year,” Davis said. “Fans everywhere will now be able to experience the humor, fun, adventure and cooler, lighter, brighter animated style that our Autobots and Decepticons deliver as we open up the next storytelling chapter in this beloved franchise on Cartoon Network around the globe, from hubs in the U.S. and Europe to Latin America, Asia, the Middle East and Africa.
Finn Arnesen, senior VP of global distribution and development for Hasbro Studios, added, “Cartoon Network makes a tremendous launch pad for TRANSFORMERS: Robots in Disguise. Complemented by additional Turner channels, Cartoon Network provides the ideal fit across the board for our series, reaching a core demographic of boys 6-11 and kids of all ages.”
The mission begins as Bumblebee must step up to be leader in the years after we left the Autobots in Transformers Prime. Summoned by Optimus Prime to save Earth from a new Decepticon threat, Bumblebee puts his light-hearted mettle to the test after assembling a rouge team of young Autobot action heroes. Bumblebee must balance his job fighting off evil with being equal parts squad leader and coach to a rascally band that needs constant coaxing to learn how to work together. The results are comical when the cool rebel, elite guard cadet, bombastic dinobot and overly excited mini-con must balance team-building with chasing and capturing their new enemies in every episode packed full of action, fun and adventure.
The highly innovative TRANSFORMERS franchise is one of the biggest brands in the world, spanning television, film and digital entertainment (including the 2014 global blockbuster, TRANSFORMERS: AGE OF EXTINCTION, the fourth in the hit film series); as well as gaming; apps; publishing; transmedia events; toys, games and licensing.
Roberto Orci has been interviewed by IGN regarding the next Transformers animated series. Roberto confirmed that both he and Alex Kurtzman will be returning to produce the new series and but also has started that it will be more kid-friendly and less intense than Transformers Prime but that they would welcome back Peter Cullen and Frank Welker to the show.
It’s not really a reboot, it’s sort of a continuation of it [Transformers Prime] in a tonally different form. We want to make sure we’re servicing the right audiences. We got to do a very adult version of Transformers that you just saw in this cartoon, a very sophisticated one, and we also want to make sure we don’t leave other kids behind, who love Transformers too and don’t want to be as scared as Transformers Prime could make you, that kind of thing. So we’re going to have a good parallel series that is connected, but it’s a little more friendly to the family.
When asked whether the show will be a "kids-only affair", Roberto replied:
I would say that clever wit always makes it something more adult. I think the look of it, you may find, is more kid-friendly. But we certainly don’t intend to be any less entertaining or any less Transformers. But there is a little bit of truth to that. I won’t deny that also, yes, we’re trying to make sure that younger kids who really love Transformers aren’t put off by its intensity.

Hydra, who currently works for Part One Ltd / e-Hobby, has posted some information regarding Transformers Go! over on The Allspark taken from the just released magazine information on the upcoming straight-to-dvd animated series.
"Well, looks like the information is legitimately out...
The magazine spread for Go! said that Optimus and co. had sealed Predaking [Dragotron] away inside the Earth using the artfact known as the "Legendisk,"
and left Earth to hunt down other Predacons who had spread throughout the galaxy. They entrusted the duty of hunting down the scattering of Predacons still on Earth to a team of six Autobots...
In that sense, it takes place after BH, but whether it will link up smoothly is anyone's guess.
Basically, the extent to swhich this mirrors Battlestars>OpCom is uncanny. Elite team of powerful Autobots, including Optimus Prime (and BH Op himself is very Star Convoy-ish already) leave Earth to do battle in space. Earth is left in the hands of small team of freely combining Autobots.
Coincidence? Almost certainly.
GameWatch have published more information on the upcoming Japanese exclusive Transformers Anime series Transformers Go! According to the article the series must appeal to big business and will NOT be a Television series, as was previously expected, but will be released as a DVD by Shogakukan in TV-Boy and Kodansha in TV magazine. The article confirms that the 3-part combiner will be able to merge to form three different robots. Metroplex was also shown during the event and was measured at 58cms
More information is expected to be released on the 24th and 25th April when Takara-Tomy group hold their "summer business meetings".
