David Jaffe doesn't waste time. It's just over two weeks since he left Sony to set up his Eat, Sleep, Play studio with Incognito founder Scott Campbell, and already he has four games lined up for his previous employer's machines.
The PlayStation 2 port of the PSP's Twisted Metal: Head On we already knew about, but in an interview with GamePro, Kratos' dad has confirmed that the studio's three game deal with Sony relates entirely to exclusive PlayStation 3 titles, with the first one to hit in 2008. Speaking of that game, Jaffe said:
I can't disclose themes, but the new game is medium to hardcore in terms of game play and will focus heavily on multiplayer.
I am more excited about this game than anything I have ever worked on. I cannot wait to unveil it.
Given that Jaffe has previously expressed reluctance to work on any more large scale epics it's unlikely we'll be seeing any new mega-franchises from Eat, Sleep, Play any time soon, but if Sony is really serious about its slow and steady approach to the PS3, a consistent supply of this sort of thing is going to work wonders.
