Eat Sleep Play Co-Founder, David Jaffe has announced that Twisted Metal won't be making its scheduled October 2011 release date, moving into the early part of next year instead. The extra time will be invested in making the game "the best Twisted Metal ever made," says Jaffe, who also announced that the game will be putting in an appearance at Gamescom and PAX.

"Now, if we shipped Twisted Metal tomorrow – going off the response from folks who have played it – I assure you, it would never be a bad game. Not even close," said Jaffe. "But we’re aiming for a heck of a lot more than that! With Twisted Metal we plan to ship a multiplayer classic. We plan to ship the best Twisted Metal ever made. We plan to convert a lot of folks who think vehicle combat is a relic best left to 90′s nostalgia."

At Gamescom and PAX, a brand new level called 'Thrills & Spills Amusement Park' will be shown alongside the brand new Team Hunted mode, which promises to pack in the same brand of OTT destruction and twisted humour that the Twisted Metal series is famed for.

Twisted Metal will now be shipping in early 2012.

I'm dying to play this, but honestly, I'm glad. My pre-orders alone are killing my wallet/free time from October to Dec.

Batman, Assassin's Creed, Uncharted 3, Spider-man: Edge of Time, Zelda. That's just the pre-orders too. Forget about all the great stuff coming out between now and then that I haven't pre-ordered.

Thanks Dave!

I'm really looking forward to this, one of my few day 1 buys. I'm ok with the delay though, will relieve the pressure on my wallet some. Plus I plan on playing this alot and with BF3 and Uncharted 3 releasing less than a month afterwards, I don't think I would of played it as much as I wanted too.

Nice to see people relieved for a delay as opposed to the usual exclamations of bitching.

I'd be sad, but it's hard when both my wallet and backlog are cheering right now.

Wow I was so excited for the October release but another delay!?? But hehe Im actualy glad.... I mean come on guys, they are touching up the game even more!! than having us to buy TM then get patch patch patch and maybe even buy a million DLC when they are probably including it in a complete packaged game. Unlike some greedy money milking companies out there. great job David Jaffe, sry i called you a douche 2weeks ago.

Don't announce a date in a trailer if you going to delay it, specially 3-4 months. Duh, lame project manager.

Well I was hoping for this October release, but hell I'll accept a delay. Gives me more time to not touch any other game except Space Marine in a month.

I don't see this as a bad thing. The developers now have time to polish it more and since there's so many other games being released this fall, including 2 other Sony games Resistance 3 and Uncharted 3, that it doesn't hurt to delay it any. This is good news for Rage since it was also releasing on Oct. 4th. I think those two would of hurt each others sales.

@17 Don't forget Saints Row 3, Batman:AC, Resistance 3, Dead Rising 2:OtR, and Rage.

Heh, this is actually good news. Too many titles coming out in October/November as it is...the delay will only allow us loyal fans to give Twisted Metal the amount of attention it deserves. That being said, hopefully it comes out sooner than later.

This is actually really good. With less people spending money on different titles at one point in time means more people can get enough money to buy this multiplayer heavy game at another point in time. And this also allows the creators to polish this games graphics. Let`s hope it comes out January or early February.
