David Jaffe confirms Twisted Metal will miss the October release date. The game is said to be coming out in early 2012, but fear not, Jaffe insists the game will have greater polish.
I would rather have the game polished then have a shit game come out early.
We forget sometimes that Jaffe is a good game designer. He loves what he is doing, when i rememeber God of war on PS2 i remember a game that raised the bar on the console. I think that Jaffe can do the same work on twisted metal and make not only a really cool game to play but a definitive hit on PS3.
Definitely. Plus, Oct. 4th also has Batman AND Rage coming out which arguably are bigger titles. Honestly, this game is going to need breathing room to be successful and hit it's true stride. Good decision, Jaffe.
Better be this way, the most polished as possible, I prefer to wait than be disappointed, I want more freaking explosions and destructible enviroments, come on Jaffe, I know you can do it...
YES! I'm sooo happy Jaffe is holding this back! I loved how the graphics looked but when I saw it I ust knew it needed more polish to the game. I'd rather the game be close to perfect on the 2012 release, than a freaking wad of updates taking proportional amounts of HDD space. Rock on Jaffe, Rock on!!
Cant say I'm glad cause I'm not. TM was the title I was looking forward the most for the rest of the year. It sucks. Well, it is gonna be Journey + ICO collection and depending on reception R3.
No Uncharted 3 love? Who cares about R3 reception? All videos and news so far indicates it will be awesome and best in the series!
I know what you mean. R3 is looking to be awesome, but by reception I meant fellow PS3 owners's. R3 can get a 6 for all I care in press reviews. I like U3 but it is not on the top of my list, besides U3 has a sizable fanbase so it´ll do well w/o my purchase. Gotta get some lesser known gems.
I was not expecting this game to come out this year, I mean they just announce it this E3 and it was still in the early stages.
"Gotta get some lesser known gems." Confirmed hipster. :D
"A late game is only late until it ships. A bad game is bad until the end of time" on your face duke
And my wallet let's out a sigh of relief.
I'm personally glad that this is the case. A better game all round should be released.
Yea we already have BF3,Arkham city,KOF 13 etc coming out that month so this was a smart move on their part.Who knows maybe this will give them time to release a public beta^^. Edit:once again Raven talking out of his @$$-__-.
It does open up a whole realm of possibilities. You're right, with such a saturated release window this fall/winter with AAA titles it would be hard for a reboot to get through too. Its a good thing that the game can be fine tuned and be more appealing. Hell, we'd only complain if the game came out and wasn't polished.
I'm glad too. I mean, Twisted Metal was probably in my top 3 most anticipated games to be released this fall, but there are SOOO many other AAA games coming out that this lightens the load on my wallet and doesn't force me to make painful decisions about which game to buy over the other which is going to have to be based on reviews, seeing as how most of the titles interest me equally, I have to have a deciding factor to purchase one over the other, and unfortunately reviews and reception are those deciding factors. Now with Twisted Metal I don't have to worry about that, and it will give me time to play other games. This tidal wave of great games incoming kind of pissed me off anyways, they should spread it out more evenly.
nooooooooooooooo Oh wait early 2012 plus polish is good very good
Thank goodness! Way to many games coming out sept-dec and now I can save up for it in 2012
Well my wallet will be happy but i'm not :/ was looking forward to playing this. I think this game would've been overlooked in October anyway.
I knew this was coming, it has nothing to do with polish and everything to do with a game that was getting overlooked with so many other titles coming out. Didn't Jaffe go on some lame ass rant as well when it comes to FPS games or something? Probably didn't like the hype those games were getting as opposed to his.
for once I may have to agree with you!!! As much as I am looking forward to the game it was definitely pushed to get out of the crowded season.
Imma have to agree here. This has NOTHING to do with polish folk, game looks fun as hell. This is about that massive jealousy rant Jaffe put out a little bit ago about Battlefield 3. October is looking to be owned by Battlefield 3, Batman: Arkham City, and RAGE. Sony more than likely looked at the month (and pre-orders, which can be a good indicator of retail anticipation for titles) and determined that they weren't going to get a big enough slice of pie.
"This has NOTHING to do with polish folk" Oh I doubt it has NOTHING to do with polish. Yeah, they probably did push it back because the market is going to be overcrowded, but I bet they are going to at least polish the game a little more in the mean time or possibly do a beta test for the servers. I don't think they're simply going to do nothing between the time it releases.
. ...the recent Rage hype Video had to be the last straw and, Willits and overachiever Johnny C's bragging aside, that game looks phenomenal. The only problem with moving a game like twisted metal and it's multi-player to 2012 is the uncertainty to how long the gen will go on, cutting off the fanbase before it even got started. The last video I saw of Twisted Metal showed that it had come a long way since the dreadful E3 showing where entire buildings were disappearing...O_o...It actually looks like fun.
*clicks on the disagree* sorry did you say something?
"The only problem with moving a game like twisted metal and it's multi-player to 2012 is the uncertainty to how long the gen will go on, cutting off the fanbase before it even got started." Twisted Metal fanbase... it's been going since the PS1 era and people still play those games. Are games disposable to you or something? Can you not understand that people don't just play the brand new?
so much fear of MW3 and BF3 jaffe?
Fine with me. Money is tight and the list of games I want this fall is still long.
wtf?? bring game this year ffs I think jaffe saw titles for november-december time,and he pushed game to 2012,and now he saying that game needs more polish -.-
I think this is a good thing. With so much stuff coming out later this year and some of them being really big names in the industry it's really better to push until a bit quieter time. And also this gives them time to polish the game and maybe even add new content, which will result in a better game for us. It's a win-win IMO.
NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! http://nooooooooooooooo.com...
Great move. Would have gotten overshadowed with all the other AAA releases this holiday season.
called it. there just seems to be a lot of bad mojo surrounding TM and I haven't seen any interviews where Jaffe seemed real confident his game was awesome. Which is one reason he keeps repeating his now usual "I don't care if people like it" bit as if it's some self-defense mechanism and he knows it's not as good as people would expect from a full price game. which is another reason he wanted everyone to know he originally wanted to make it a PSN download. anyway, I'm about a keyboard stroke away from saying, from observation, it almost sounds like Jaffe's skills have regressed to the point of falling off because he seems to be so obsessed over simple gameplay mechanics it's like his wet dreams are now to work for Pop Cap
