A new Twisted Metal game is in very early development at the same studio that brought us Destruction AllStars, Lucid Games. According to a report from VGC, the new Twisted Metal game is the first new entry in the series in over a decade and will be free-to-play.
The last Twisted Metal release was back in 2012 for the PS3. The game series has since been dormant with an odd cameo here and there of the lead character Sweet Tooth. Sony and PlayStation Productions are also currently working on a Twisted Metal series starring Anthony Mackie as John Doe. However, this project is still in very early production.

Sony has yet to acknowledge the existence of this new game. Lucid Games have also been quiet about the development project. The studio was opened back in 2011 by former employees of Bizarre Creation, an Activision-owned studio. Lucid Games is known for its work on a handful of racing titles including Project Gotham Racing, The Club and the most recent Destruction AllStars that released back in February as a PS5 exclusive.
Seen as most of the studios’ work revolves around racing and vehicle combat, it seems only fitting that Lucid Games would pick up the Twisted Metal project. Perhaps the development of the new game is currently set to align with the upcoming TV series based on the franchise. Here. Anthony Mackie, who plays the lead, John Doe, is hired to carry a package across a post-apocalyptic wasteland. He teams up with car thieves to help deliver the package but runs into obstacles along the way. One of which is a maniac clown by the name of Sweet Tooth.
