David Jaffe, head of Eat Sleep Play has commented on rumours that his highly anticipated new title isn’t going to be a return to the Twisted Metal franchise that is so adored and revered by the Playstation generation. As ever, David’s comments are worded very carefully, lots of ‘ifs’, ‘maybes’ and ‘buts’ but certainly no ‘definitelys’. Jaffe writes that if a new Twisted Metal is in the works it would essentially be treated like a new IP. The assumption would be that no one has every heard of Twisted Metal before and that this new game would be a reboot. Here’s whats on Jaffe’s Brain:

“Just to be clear, I’ve never said we were or were NOT making a new Twisted Metal. Ever. But just to be 100% clear, if we were to make a new Twisted, I would consider it a reboot. The last console Twisted was 10 years ago. If we were to make a new one, we’d be starting with the assumption that no one knows what Twisted Metal is anymore and we’d have to re-earn each and every fan the series ever had. So in that sense, IF we were to ever make a new one, we’d consider it a brand new series/game/franchise.”
