"maintenance contract" period passes for the upcoming PS3 revival of Twisted Metal. He'll leave end of March.
Jaffe has no corporate paperwork sorted out yet, and he's 99% on Twisted Metal for now. There are four games he'd "love to do," but it depends on talent and cash.
There are no sequel or DLC plans for Twisted Metal, Jaffe recently told Game Informer. However he isn't completely dismissing a return to the series, if the opportunity were to arise.
"I will be with Eat Sleep Play until we finish what's called the 'maintenance contract' we have and have been working on with Sony. That will allow us, post-launch, to stay and address issues that there's no way we can know of. Cleaning things up in terms of balance, bugs, tuning, tweaks," David Jaffe told Joystiq at DICE Summit 2012.
"There's no corporate filings, there's no official company name yet; 99 percent of my day is Twisted Metal right now. There's four games I would love to do, the one I do really depends on the team I can put together and the money that I can find to make it." Console and browser-based titles are part of those ideas, and some 'guerrilla-style' horror?
"There's a survival-horror genre in there, a real low-budget survival horror, kinda guerrilla film making style. Not in terms of the look, but in terms of that kind of financing and that kind of production."
Twisted Metal releases on PS3 February 14th.
