Game will be "so much better than it already is"

Twisted Metal will miss its originally planned October 4 release date. The game will now ship in early 2012, director David Jaffe has revealed.

“We’re gamers too and we know how annoying it is,” wrote Jaffe on the PlayStation Blog. “It’s disappointing and frustrating and it really takes the wind out 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.

“With Twisted Metal we plan to ship a multiplayer classic. We plan to ship the best Twisted Metal ever made. We plan to convert a lot of folks who think vehicle combat is a relic best left to 90′s nostalgia. And we plan to explode the belief that the only relevant kind of shooter is a first person one.”

Jaffe also announced the game will be present at Gamescom and PAX Prime, which are both being held later this month. If you’re attending either, be sure to check it out.

    I think its a good idea, it’ll probably be over shadowed by everything else coming in the fall season

    I can see why it’s getting pushed back. The graphics weren’t up to par and they probably want to do more multiplayer focus modes add ons. From what I’ve heard it’s extremely fun to play, I believe in Jaffe (he’s never let me down).
