News: Maybe, possibly, who knows?
What is God of War developer David Jaffe thinking right now? Well, according to his blog, right now he's thinking about going to Salt Lake City to work with his team at Eat, Sleep, Play.
But yesterday, he was dropping hints about the unannounced PS3 version of Twisted Metal:
Just to be clear, I've never said we were or were NOT making a new Twisted Metal. Ever," he states on his blog. "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.
This is what is known as a BIG HINT. Jaffe is speaking in that legalese developers speak in when they're not really supposed to talk about something. But he's never been big on following rules anyway.
However, it's possible he's just screwing us with as two weeks ago
Jaffe was lamenting the fact that E3 doesn't offer any big surprises anymore:
...if game sites are going to report on every little rumor- no matter how solid or no matter how clearly full of shit- then they must stop bitching about GDC and E3 not having any surprises.
But to use an overused net cliche: this is why we can't have nice things. Or more specifically, this is why the days of E3 and GDC being full of jaw dropping surprises are pretty much over.
So to recap: the next entry in the Twisted Metal will be a reboot (much like Twisted Metal Black
was) or it might not. But it probably will be.
We'll have more soon, hopefully at (or before) E3.
