The lights are on
Twisted Metal and God of War creator David Jaffe offered a few hints about his next game and it may feature at least one gun.
In an interview with IGN, Jaffe commented on first-person shooters saying that he is a fan, but that the genre has grown stale over the last few years. "I love the genre, but I feel it has been allowed to go a little -- well, actually, quite a lot -- stale when it comes to moment to moment mechanics," said Jaffe.
Jaffe added that he has been throwing around a lot of different ideas for games, and has narrowed them down to a few that he would like to pursue. Jaffe said, "there is a gun in [one of the games] and you hold it. And all the things that I can sit here and passionately discuss and preach to you are absolutely things that I'm thinking about doing if it turns out the game we're thinking about doing gets made next involves a gun and a person holding a gun."
It's all very ambiguous, and offers no real indication of what Jaffe is working on, but it sounds like he would like to do a shooter if given the opportunity. It wouldn't be the first time Jaffe worked on a first-person shooter. After the release of God of War, Jaffe began working on a first-person shooter for the PSP called Heartland. That project was unfortunately cancelled before releasing.

Jaffe's a talented guy, do I'm interested to see what exactly his next project is.
Hmmm.... I think if there is someone in the industry that can bring something new and exciting to the FPS genre, this guy may be it.
well, lets see how things turn out. It could be the best new twist for all we know. I never talk bad about a game until I play it. Of course, there are games that are not meant for everyone. So, i'd understand when someone doesn't enjoy a game.
cant wait to see what he does next, jaffe always knows how to spice things up a bit.
Pretty much all of the FPS games I can list are very similar, so I certainly wouldn't mind if Jaffe would try and do something new to the genre.
Will be interested to see what hes up to once we get some real information.
yeah, i'm sick of all these military shooters that all look the same. hopefully it's as original as mirrors edge, or condemded.
Interesting. If anyone can make a shooter interesting its him.
If anyone can bring excitement back into FPS it's Jaffe. :)
Anything David Jaffe is always good.
Anything, ANYTHING for a different shooter experience.
And yeah.... If anybody can think up strange, new ideas it's this guy.
come on jaffe breathe new life into the fps genre i trust you
