We learned a few days ago that the reboot of Twisted Metal, PlayStation’s car-fighting game franchise, has reportedly passed into new hands at the Japanese brand’s first-party studios. A handover coming from the Lucid studio left without further details as to the new team in charge of the project… Until today and the last revelation of the site VideoGamesChronicles.

The studio Firesprite, from Liverpool, would have taken control of this reinterpretation of Twisted Metal.

You’ll never drive alone

The American site had reported that the project Twisted Metal was taken out of the hands of Lucid to go to another first-party studio in Europe … and it is finally close to his old creamery that the car scrapyard game finds itself for this sudden change. More precisely, it is Firesprite, another studio also located in the reds, which will take over the development of the reboot. It will be overseen by Matt Southern — an industry veteran who owes the franchises. Motorstorm and the game Driveclub-, the latter having joined Firesprite after having left his previous functions at… Lucid. A musical chair game that we have a hard time following.

Born from the ashes of the former Sony Interactive Entertainment Studio Liverpool, Firesprite is one of Sony’s most recent acquittals. This team has notably collaborated on Playroom games and its virtual reality version for the PSVR headset, and is now under the direction of the Japanese firm. This team is also working on another VR project that was formalized recently: Horizon Call of the Mountain, one of the first games announced for the PSVR2 headset from PlayStation.

If this video game return for Twisted Metal is still shrouded in mystery, the franchise will make a new appearance — but in a different format. Thus, a television series adapted from the video game has been made official by the PlayStation Productions branch of the firm, with no release horizon.
