Damn: Twisted Metal delayed to early 2012

David Jaffe says that they're going to miss the date of October 4, and that Twisted Metal has to be pushed back. They need time to polish the title, he says.

"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." 

From this fall to early next year is a long-ass delay for polish and tuning, wouldn't you say? Still, Jaffe puts it nicely so you can appreciate that he's doing it for you. I believe him.

"Most importantly, we plan on treating you – the kind folks who play our game (and pay our bills) – like the VIPs that you are," Jaffe wrote on the PS Blog. "You only deserve our best and we appreciate your understanding as we take a little more time to guarantee that our best is what we deliver."

Judging from the times I've played it this year game is already rockin', so I trust they are doing something really important with this extra time. If that 3 or more months is truly polish time, this is going to be the shiniest game ever made.

There is some good news, though: Twisted Metal will be playable at both PAX Prime and Gamescom 2011.They be showing off a brand new level called Thrills & Spills Amusement Park, and new mode Team Hunted will also be debuted. Bonus: there will also be some free Sweet Tooth masks given away.
