The reboot of Twisted Metal, originally planned for an October 4th release, has now been delayed until “early 2012”. Eat Sleep Play head David Jaffe announced the delay in the Playstation Blog, citing “extra time needed to polish our demented baby” as the reason for the push.
He quotes Shigeru Miyamoto, legendary Nintendo designer as saying, “A late game is only late until it ships. A bad game is bad until the end of time.”
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, says Jaffe.
As of now, the game does not have a solid release date but will ship early 2012. Stay tuned for more details.
