Twisted Metal has been missing from the gaming scene for a decade now, but with a new TV series coming later this year it also appears that the long-rumored new Twisted Metal game for PS5 and PS4 could also be coming to PSVR 2 and PC if a new job listing is anything to go by.
Job listing hints Twisted Metal reboot could come to PSVR 2 and PC
A job listing from Firesprite Studios, the developer currently rumored to be working on the Twisted Metal reboot, has surfaced that suggests a possible PSVR 2 mode or release for the game, along with a PC release.
Firesprite is currently hiring for a Principal Physics Programmer – Multiplayer Action, which could refer directly to the Twisted Metal reboot. The job listing also seems to hint heavily at PSVR 2 compatibility and a day-one PC launch, with the job listing stating that ‘experience developing gameplay for VR would be useful’ and ‘knowledge of a range of game services such as Steam and PSN back ends’ is important.
The same job listing also describes the game, saying that it’ll feature a ‘blending genre-transcending gameplay mechanics around vehicular and on foot combat,’ heavily fuelling the idea that this could indeed be Twisted Metal.
It was early last year that VGC reported that Firesprite Studio had taken over development on a Twisted Metal reboot, but since that report, we’ve not heard anything about the game. There’s been no official announcement and no real talk from the studio on whether this report is true.
The last game in the Twisted Metal series was also a reboot, released in 2012 exclusively for the PlayStation 3. The game received mostly positive reviews, but for unknown reasons, Sony chose to not make any more games in the series, perhaps due to underwhelming sales.
