A report from VGC has claimed that Destruction All Stars developer Lucid is no longer working on the Twisted Metal reboot.
Last year, VGC were also the ones to report that a Twisted Metal reboot was in development. The report stated that Lucid would be working on the game, and it was planned to coincide with the upcoming television show adaptation.
Now, VGC has been told that Lucid is no longer working on the reboot. Instead, development has been moved to one of Sony’s first party studios. But there is currently no confirmation as to which studio this might be. Both Sony Interactive Entertainment and Lucid Games reportedly did not respond to VGC’s request to comment.
The source did not explain why development has moved to another studio. But it could be because of the negative reception to Destruction All Stars. The TV adaptation of Twisted Metal is set to air sometime in 2023. Early development has begun at the Sony first party studio. But considering the lengthy time needed to develop even a small game, it seems unlikely that the two will release at the same time. For that to happen, the TV show will most likely need to be delayed.
Avengers star Anthony Mackie is currently slated to play the role of John Doe in the TV adaptation of Twisted Metal.
