Twisted Metal release date pushed back until early 2012
Vehicular combat romp to miss its October schedule.
Eat Sleep Play boss David Jaffe has announced that Twisted Metal will miss its impending released date this October, revealing that the much-awaited vehicular combat title has been pushed back into early 2012.
Writing on the official PlayStation Blog, the big man apologized for the delay, explaining that the PS3 game is not ready yet and it simply needs more time for extra polish until it shines.
“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. We plan to convert a lot of folks who think vehicle combat is a relic best left to 90′s nostalgia. And we plan to explode the belief that the only relevant kind of shooter is a first person one (or a 3rd person one, where you play a human… with a tee shirt not all the way tucked in …” he said.
“Most importantly, we plan on treating you – the kind folks who play our game (and pay our bills) – like the VIPs that you are. You only deserve our best and we appreciate your understanding as we take a little more time to guarantee that our best is what we deliver”.
Elsewhere, Jaffe said that Eat Sleep Play is currently prepping a playable build of Twisted Metal for Gamescon and PAX Prime later this month, which will highlight a new stage named Thrills & Spills Amusement Park. A new trailer alongside a new game mode titled Team Hunted will be unveiled as well.
