Rumor: New Twisted Metal Game in the Works?

A new poll on David Jaffe’s Web site seems to suggest one might be on the way

A new poll posted on David Jaffe’s website ( is asking gamers what they’d like to see in an upcoming installment to the Twisted Metal franchise. Jaffe, director of the series as well as the first installment of the God of War franchise, is known for his candor about the video-game industry, so it seems possible that he could be at the very least considering revisiting the beloved vehicle-combat franchise.

The first entry to the Twisted Metal franchise was released as a launch title for the original Sony PlayStation, and was instantly well received as a stand-out title for the new system. Whereas there have been several iterations in the franchise including a remake of the original that was released on the PSP and PS2 as Twisted Metal: Head-On in 2005 and Twisted Metal: Head-On Extra Twisted Edition in 2008, respectively, the last official game released in the series was Twisted Metal: Black in 2001. An online version of the game was released in 2002.

While there have been recent rumblings that Jaffe’s development company, Eat Sleep Play, has been working on a new game in the franchise, SCEA has not confirmed the rumors.
