Twisted Metal

Sony’s car combat series Twisted Metal has been on the ice for quite a while now, but it looks like it might be on the comeback trailer. A TV series based on the IP is currently in the works, while recent rumours have also pegged a reboot game being in development. But while previous leaks had claimed that Destruction AllStars developer Lucid Games was in charge of the project, it seems like there’s been some changes on that front.

As per a report by VGC, the Twisted Metal reboot has switched developers. The project has allegedly been taken away from Lucid Games and brought in-house to a first party PlayStation studio in Europe, where it’s now in early production. No concrete reasons have been mentioned for the same, but it’s possible that the lukewarm critical reception for Destruction AllStars may have played a part.

The name of the studio hasn’t been mentioned, but given the fact that it’s based in Europe, it’s easy to narrow the list down. A likely candidate would be Liverpool-based XDev, who also assisted with Destruction AllStars’ development. Interestingly, rumours have also claimed that XDev is working on a new WipEout game.

Previous leaks have claimed that the Twisted Metal game will adopt a free-to-play model, though it remains to be seen whether those plans will have changed with the switch of studios.
