The PlayStation 3 exclusive Twisted Metal has been delayed to 2012 according to the game's director, David Jaffe.
Twisted Metal was originally supposed to ship on October 4, 2011 but according to a post on by Jaffe on the PlayStation Blog, the developers at Eat Sleep Play are "just not ready yet."
"It sucks bad when games miss their announced launch dates," said Jaffe. "We’re gamers too and we know how annoying it is. It’s disappointing and frustrating and it really takes the wind out of your sails if you’re a fan that has been looking forward to playing a title for a long time."
Jaffe affirms that the Twisted Metal game that ships will be the best Twisted Metal ever made, and they only want to ship the best product.
As someone who is used to waiting very, very long for great games to come out (ahem, The Last Guardian and Diablo 3) I think it's a good idea when developers hold on to their titles a little bit longer in order to ship out something that will exceed expectations. What about you?
