Twisted Metal Destruction AllStars Dev

Destruction AllStars developer Lucid is reportedly working on a new Twisted Metal title, according to VGC sources. Rumours of a Twisted Metal rebirth have been doing the rounds for quite some time, and on paper this sounds like a perfect fit.

Supposedly, the new game will coincide with the recently announced Twisted Metal TV show, which also makes total sense. Said TV adaptation is apparently due in 2023, it should be noted.

The gossip doesn't end there, however. One source tells VGC that the rebooted Twisted Metal will adopt a free-to-play model, and again, it all seems to add up. You may remember that PlayStation 5 exclusive Destruction AllStars was originally set to be a full-price release before it was made into a PlayStation Plus freebie — and we dread to think how badly it would have been received had it actually launched at £60, or $70.

This could well be Lucid's second chance at creating a hit. VGC writes: "Despite the poor reception to AllStars, Lucid has a long pedigree in the racing genre and is trusted to do a good job with Twisted Metal, we were told."
