Analyst Michael Pachter has told Eurogamer that what he said about a Twisted Metal PS3 game was "a guess".
"I know nothing about what David [Jaffe] is working on, other than that it is a 'really great game', according to him, but I suppose that goes without question," he said.
"My Twisted Metal comment is purely conjecture, it's the game I hope he's working on, but I do not have confirmation from him about it, and have not been briefed by anyone under NDA.
"It wasn't a slip," he added, "it was an intentional comment, and it is just my best guess as to what he's working on. For the sake of the gaming community, I hope I'm right."
