Twisted Metal has been delayed til 2012.
"A late game is only late until it ships. A bad game is bad until the end of time," series creator David Jaffe wrote; the quote was originally from game designer Shigeru Miyamoto.
Jaffe stated, "Now, if we shipped Twisted Metal tomorrow--going off the response from folks who have played it--I assure you, it would never be a bad game," then promised, "With Twisted Metal we plan to ship a multiplayer classic."
Twisted Metal will be playable at Gamescom 2011 and PAX Prime 2011.
