After David Jaffe posted a shot of an internal email he sent, details leaked about a new car game he's working on. He may have blurred the pertinent details, but there's always someone with mad photoshop skills out there who could work around it - to some extent at least. What they managed to unfog leads to a car game, now speculated to be a new Twisted Metal game.
Judging by the "dragging him behind your car" and "when he is launched out of a car" lines found on the email, the new game definitely involves cars and violence - two things that we love about Twisted Metal, although we never really launched anybody out of the cars - except for Brimstone's Special on TM Black, that is. As far as "dragging him behind your car" goes, maybe there's gonna be a tow truck with that kind of Special attack?
The email basically says that Jaffe wants improvements for the car game, which seems to be a little stale right now that it needs to feel more like an action movie. As it is, the Twisted Metal rumors may just be the result of missing a great title, and this new car game may be an entirely new franchise. We might find out more on E3, because the email mentions a milestone at the end of the month.
I'm not too convinced that the new car game would be a Twisted Metal, but damn, Minion would look so sick on this console gen.
