Is The Twisted Metal Reboot’s Developer Found?

Twisted Metal, known in the 90s and the 2000s, is making a return, especially after not being present on the PlayStation 4.


We previously wrote about how Twisted Metal might be making a more significant comeback than just having a TV show adaptation of the license, but we did not have more details back then. Now, VGC told us some new information, and going by what they claim; we could pinpoint who is working on a new Twisted Metal game.

“According to the sources, the new car combat instalment – which by release, will be the series’ first in over a decade – has started early development at the Liverpool, UK-based studio [Lucid Games]. One person with knowledge of Lucid’s plans suggested that the revival would be built around a free-to-play model, partly in response to Destruction All-Stars’ last-minute transition from a premium game to a PlayStation Plus title,” VGC wrote. Since Destruction All-Stars was pretty much a knockoff Twisted Metal sans its style, it makes sense.

VentureBeat’s Jeff Grubb also talked about the possibility of Twisted Metal in early September: “I think Twisted Metal is in the works, but it may still be a ways off, so I think we’re early. That speaks to a larger strategy shift from Sony – well, it’s not even a shift, it’s a ‘broadening’ of their strategy. […] It does seem like it does not involve David Jaffe. [Sony] is potentially greenlighting games to coincide with their attempts to release movies and television shows based on these properties.

It seems that they are going to try to line these things up with games simultaneously. The thinking there is one, they looked at [the Marvel Cinematic Universe], and they want to have MCU-like success, and I think there’s thought inside of Sony that, ‘Hey, we make movies, why aren’t we capitalizing on that?”, Grubb said.

The Twisted Metal game is yet to be announced. The game could be arriving in 2023, exclusively on PlayStation 5.
