At last night's AIAS Awards at DICE 2010, video game pioneer David Jaffe may have revealed a release window for the next Twisted Metal game. According to an on-the-scene report from our own Andrew Pfister, crowd members screamed "Twisted Metal!" while Jaffe was presenting an award, and Jaffe responded thusly:
"Soon, b*tch. Eight or nine months."
So, unless Jaffe was answering an unheard spectator asking, "How long does a human baby take to gestate," it looks like we may see a new Twisted Metal in less than a year.
The lesson here: Don't be rude at awards shows, or a well-known game developer might call you a naughty word, also: People are very excited at the prospect of a new Twisted Metal game.
