Up until last year, we'd given up hope of the genre making a return to its golden years, but then David Jaffe changed everything by announcing Twisted Metal and making us go mad in celebration.

Twisted Metal is not out yet, but already the genre seems to be having somewhat of a mini-revival. Earlier in the year there was Red Faction: Battlegrounds, and of course there's id's RAGE in September. But now it sounds like Carmageddon is making a come-back too.

There's not much to go on, but a countdown clock on points to an early June reveal. We're going nuts here. We thought you would like to know.
