A brand new Twisted Metal sport is reportedly in improvement, and can coincide with Sony’s upcoming television show. The collection – which was beforehand rebooted on PlayStation 3 – is likely one of the oldest in PlayStation’s first-party portfolio, and whereas it by no means actually resonated with the European market, is taken into account one thing of a cult traditional in the USA.
The hearsay, as is so typically the case lately, traces again to GamesBeat scribe Jeff Grubb, talking as a part of his premium Giant Bomb podcast. “I believe Twisted Metallic is within the works however it could nonetheless be a methods off, so I believe we’re early,” he stated, including that the synergy between its tv and online game divisions “speaks to a bigger technique shift from Sony”.
So, can we count on to see the title throughout at this time’s PlayStation Showcase? “If they’ve Twisted Metallic prepared to point out, they could,” he teased. “However both approach, it does look like it’s within the works, it does appear that it’s coming, and it does look like it doesn’t contain [series creator] David Jaffe.” The previous PlayStation man had previously hinted at a title that may make followers “lose their minds”.
Assuming Grubb is correct, it’ll be fascinating to see what kind this title takes, as the tv present is being billed as a form of “motion comedy”, whereas the unique video games – significantly PS2 instalment Twisted Metal Black – was fairly darkish and macabre. We’ve all the time felt like Twisted Metallic would lend itself nicely to battle royale, personally.
After all, this isn’t the primary time Twisted Metal has been mentioned by supposed trade insiders. Earlier within the yr, Battlefield tipster Tom Henderson posted an image of Candy Tooth together with the phrases “2023”. It does look like one thing is afoot, then – the query is, how lengthy will it take for this mission to emerge?
