Twisted Metal fans like your truly will have to wait a bit longer to get their hands on Sweet Tooth and the gang, as developing guru Dave Jaffe recently revealed that Twisted Metal; “just not ready yet,” and Eat, Sleep, Play needs extra time to “polish our demented baby until it shines.”
“It sucks bad when games miss their announced launch dates,” Jaffe mentioned. “We’re gamers too and we know how annoying it is. It’s disappointing and frustrating and it really takes the wind t of your sails if you’re a fan that has been looking forward to playing a title for a long time. Thing is, you gotta trust me when I tell you that – with this extra time for tuning and polish – the game is going to be so much better than it already is. And if you played Twisted Metal and liked it at E3 or Comic-Con, or if you get to play it (and you enjoy it) at one of the August shows, just imagine how much more fun the final game will be with some extra time, polish, and love.
Twisted Metal, the PS3 exclusive will ship early 2012.
