The lights are on
Game designer David Jaffe took to his blog to give his thoughts on the future of the Twisted Metal series. He said he has no plans to work on a new game in the series anytime soon and is unable to comment what Sony plans to do, either.
Regarding sales of the latest PlayStation 3 version, Jaffe says, "it sold fine. Not a dud, not a hit." He also says if he did return to Twisted Metal, he'd like to do a smaller, download title. "We would find an art style that fits the game but allows us to keep the budget down," he says. "Or we'd go photo real but just accept we're not going to compete with current gen visuals and budget/charge accordingly."
Jaffe announced he was leaving developer Eat Sleep Play in February to open a new game studio in San Diego, Calif. where he will begin work a on free-to-play title. Head over to Jaffe's blog below for more.

eh. I didn't think the franchise was fun anyway.
I'll be sure to follow this closely...
Sounds like a smart business move to me.
Sad news. The last one was pretty fun, but it did lack some stuff.
We need Vigilante 8!
As much as I loved Twisted Metal, Twisted Metal 2 and Twisted Metal Black, I really couldn't get in to the newest iteration. I missed being able to play as all of the characters in story mode and getting their endings.
Plus, while reviews raved about the graphics, I really didn't see what all the fuss was about. I hope to see a new Twisted Metal in the future, but I hope they go more the Black route and focus on the characters, story and gameplay and less on making it a great online experience, though somehow I doubt that game gets made.
As long as the environmental destruction returns, I'll be happy.
I didnt buy the game you cant ever Rele judge a game off a demo. Dont any of you fan boys read these game informer stories. YOU PLAYED ONE LEVEL PRETTY MUCH! And the online issues may have been there in the beginning but everything can work itself out... This game i feel was for the "FANBOYS" and i see nothing wrong in that
