In the Netflix trilogy Transformers: War for Cybertron, the cast accidentally travel to a location referred to as "The Dead Universe". A lifeless region that has unusual - and often harmful - properties.

The dialog implies that the Dead Universe is another dimension or a universe apart from/outside of the cast's own universe.

Is the nature of the Dead Universe ever clarified in official source, for example a comic, novelization or video game, that is canonical to the Trilogy?

There is an identically named region in the Transformers comic from IDW that is a universe used as a power source by Shockwave, draining it of all life at the moment of its creation. Is this every confirmed to be the same Dead Universe, or a reimagining of it?

No official clarification in terms of comic, novelization, or video game is available to support this statement. The series primarily focused on the conflict between Autobots and Decepticons on Cybertron and their journey to Earth (where they continued the rivalry).

Is [the IDW's Dead Universe] ever confirmed to be the same Dead Universe or a re-imagining of it?

Regarding IDW's connection to the Dead Universe where it's depicted as a dimension drained of life by Shockwave, there hasn't been any confirmation that they are the same universe. The Netflix trilogy's Dead Universe may be a re-imagining or reinterpretation of the concept from the comics, but without explicit confirmation from the creators or official materials, we can not be confirmed/sure about it.

Maybe in new releases, they'll shed some light on it. Wait and watch.
