Twisted Metal Delayed To Early 2012



If you’ve got an itch for mindless violence and a need for speed that only the new Twisted Metal game can satisfy, you’re out of luck for the next few months. Eat Sleep Play co-founder David Jaffe announced today that the PS3 exclusive, which was slated for release on October 4, has been delayed to an unspecified date in “early 2012.”

Jaffe was very forthcoming with the reason for the delay. He said that “the truth is: we’re just not ready yet.” He added that Sony has graciously allowed Eat Sleep Play “extra time need to polish [its] demented baby until it shines.”

He was also quick to defend the delay against speculation that the game is simply not up to par:

Now, if we shipped Twisted Metal tomorrow – going off the response from folks who have played it – I assure you, it would never be a bad game. Not even close. But we’re aiming for a heck of a lot more than that! With Twisted Metal we plan to ship a multiplayer classic. We plan to ship the best Twisted Metal ever made.

For those who simply can’t wait until next year, Jaffe said that the game will be shown off at Gamescom and PAX Prime, both of which take place in August.

    Does anyone honestly care about this franchise? Serious question.

    @dac – I don’t *love* the franchise per se, but I have fond memories of playing the first game and thoroughly enjoying it.

    That said – I don’t own a Playstation 3 and this isn’t going to make me buy one.
