Sony’s got a large number of beloved first party franchises under its belt that have been dormant for way too long, and there’s a legion of fans who keep hoping for their revivals. One such franchise is the vehicular combat series Twisted Metal, which hasn’t seen a new game release since the 2012 PS3 title. That, however, might change soon.
According to well-known leaker Tom Henderson, a new Twisted Metal game is currently in the works and is, for now, planning a 2023 launch. Henderson’s tweet is a brief one, so there’s plenty of questions surrounding the game right now- whether this will be a remake, a reboot, or something else entirely remains to be seen. A Twisted Metal TV series is also in development, so maybe this could tie in with that.
Of course, in spite of Henderson’s solid track record with leaks, there’s no guarantees that this is accurate. That said, Andy Robinson of VGC recently also took to Twitter to state that he’s been told that a new Twisted Metal game is indeed in the works.
Meanwhile, Twisted Metal might not be the only dormant Sony franchise gearing up for a comeback. A recent leak also claimed that a new WipEout game is in the works for PS5 and PSVR 2. Read more on that through here.

Awkwardly, it’s since been suggested to me that this is real. https://t.co/JNmeqbcXAK
