Say it ain’t so.

But we have to as David Jaffe (Co-Founder of Eat Sleep Play) has just confirmed that Twisted Metal will NOT be shipping this year. From the Playstation Blog :

We’re not shipping Twisted Metal October 4th, 2011. We’re going to miss our date. We’re going to be late.

And frankly – That sucks. But maybe it’s all for the better because there is already going to be a S-Ton of awesome games coming out this Fall so maybe it’ll be ok that this one gives us something to look forward to in the new year. Jaffe continues:

Anyway – it sucks bad when games miss their announced launch dates. 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. Thing is, you gotta trust me when I tell you that – with this extra time for tuning and polish – the game is going to be so much better than it already is. And if you played Twisted Metal and liked it at E3 or Comic-Con, or if you get to play it (and you enjoy it) at one of the August shows, just imagine how much more fun the final game will be with some extra time, polish, and love.

There’s a great, classic industry saying by legendary Nintendo designer – and personal hero – Shigeru Miyamoto that goes a little something like this:

‘A late game is only late until it ships. A bad game is bad until the end of time.’

So “A bad game is bad until the end of time” is it? Well, we can’t argue with that. In fact, we’d go farther and say that some games are bad until the end of time EVEN BEFORE they come out. Well in the meantime, check out JuggerNOTTT playing through some multiplayer at E3. Look – It’s the best we got right now.
