One of the many rumored PS5 titles in the works is a revival of Twisted Metal, Sony’s famous vehicular combat franchise. Several sources have claimed that Lucid Games of Destruction AllStars fame is working on it. Furthermore, the LinkedIn profile for Technical Game Designer Drew Williams-Rostron listed his working on an unannounced “flagship” first-party AAA IP for PS5.
A new job listing from Lucid Games has further added fuel to the rumor. The Liverpool-based developer is currently seeking a Senior Multiplayer Programmer to work on “an exciting next generation multiplayer game.” “Knowledge and experience of the Unreal Engine networking framework” was cited as being desired.
The Twisted Metal franchise is well known for its multiplayer component and with the newest title rumored to be free-to-play, it’s seemingly all but confirmed that Lucid Games is working on the same. This could also be a brand new IP so we’ll need to wait for an official announcement to be sure. If everything falls into place, then expect the new Twisted Metal to be out sometime in 2023 to coincide with the upcoming TV show.
