A new Twisted Metal game is reportedly in development, and will coincide with Sony’s upcoming television show. The series – which was previously rebooted on PlayStation 3 – is one of the oldest in PlayStation’s first-party portfolio, and while it never really resonated with the European market, is considered something of a cult classic in the United States.
The rumour, as is so often the case these days, traces back to GamesBeat scribe Jeff Grubb, speaking as part of his premium Giant Bomb podcast. “I think Twisted Metal is in the works but it may still be a ways off, so I think we’re early,” he said, adding that the synergy between its television and video game divisions “speaks to a larger strategy shift from Sony”.
I'd be hyped for a new Twisted Metal on PS5. It's been over a decade since we got anything Twisted Metal and I rather enjoyed the 2012 PS3 reboot. It's a damn shame we never got a follow-up on that awesome cliffhanger and now would be the perfect time to do so with the TV series in the works.
I know we already got Destruction All-Stars for our car destruction fix, but Twisted Metal has bigger stages and actual weapon-mounted cars firing machine guns, missiles, etc. that you can use right away, so it's not by any means a clone.
With rumors of a new SOCOM or new multiplayer IP from Guerilla Games, Metal Gear Solid remake from Blue Point and Silent Hill remake from an unknown studio all in development fresh off all those big game reveals at PlayStation Experience, I'd say us PS5 owners are about to be spoiled rotten with exclusives this gen. Kinda eases the pain of no ES6.Last edited by KManX89 - on 11 September 2021
