Twisted Metal pushed to 2012

Eat Sleep Play’s Twisted Metal, originally penned for an October 2011 release, has been delayed. Creator David Jaffe took to the official PS Blog to make the “actually fantastic” announcement.

“We’re not shipping Twisted Metal October 4th, 2011. We’re going to miss our date. We’re going to be late,” Jaffe began.

“Ugh! I know, I know. A lot of dedicated, supportive, passionate Twisted Metal fans have been waiting for the return of Calypso’s demented contest for a long time but the truth is: we’re just not ready yet.

“Sony has been – and remains – a super supportive champion and collaborator on this title and all of us at Eat Sleep Play are so grateful that their patience and generosity will allow us the extra time needed to polish our demented baby until it shines.”

The game’s now on for an ‘early 2012’ release. More details are promised for a later date.
