Twisted Metal: Delayed until Early 2012


David Jaffe the creator of the original God of War and Twisted Metal series has announced via PlayStation Blog that Twisted Metal will indeed be delayed until early 2012.

However he did speak candidly about the game and  said their feverishly working on an updated build of the game for upcoming Game Events, Gamescom and Pax Prime. He also quoted his industry hero Shigeru  Miyamoto — A Nintendo designer saying– ‘A late game is only late until it ships. A bad game is bad until the end of time.’

Here’s some more of his quotes speaking about the delay:

“Now, 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 :)…).
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.”

Twisted will be available early 2012 exclusively for the PlayStation 3.
