Twisted Metal’s original director, David Jeffe, doesn’t believe the rumor as Sony hasn’t reached out to him.
You know what time it is? It’s rumor mill time. On Friday afternoon, DualShockers’ Tom Henderson, who has made a name for himself due to his track record of Battlefield leaks, put out a cryptic tweet. The tweet features Sweet Tooth from the long-since dead Twisted Metal (read our review) franchise.

The classic game could be making a comeback, if this tweet is to be believed. Captioned simply with “2023,” it could point to the series making a return. This alone would be shrug-worthy and possibly a missed mark, but there’s more to the car combat series in recent years.
Earlier this year, it was reported that Sony is working on a Twisted Metal action comedy TV series. If the rumor is correct, this could be a great thing for Sony as it brings back a cult classic franchise and could turn eyes on them if they keep to what works and made it iconic and ditch what hindered it. Heck, this could even just a rerelease to modern hardware, but even that would likely point to something more in the future.
