Although the original creator behind Twisted Metal, David Jaffe, says he would be surprised if Sony worked on a new game in the series without him knowing anything, there is now so much smoke that there must almost be a fire as well.
Several insiders have pointed out that a kind of reboot for the PS5 is under development, and so does Jeff Grubb in a video over at Giant Bomb. Moreover, says VGC also that they have heard of the same project.
Reportedly, the game is being developed alongside the new Twisted Metal TV series, which was unveiled way back in 2019, but reportedly this is a major push from Sony’s side to establish a universe that is explored simultaneously by both games and series.
At the time it was unveiled, then-PlayStation boss Shawn Layden said the following:
“We looked at what Marvel has done in taking the world of comic books and making it into the biggest thing in the film world. It would be a lofty goal to say we’re following in their footsteps, but certainly we’re taking inspiration from that.”
