Everyone has been waiting to hear about David Jaffe and Eat Sleep Play's new project, and many are hoping to get the announcement at this year's E3.
However, we'll have to dash those hopes, as Jaffe himself has revealed in his latest video blog that whatever the game is, it most certainly won't be revealed at this year's show. He does say the team is closing in on another major milestone next month (and they're even cranking away on Memorial Day) and there is a chance their project will be revealed before next year, but E3 2009 is definitely out. Jaffe talks about the possibility of people walking into the Sony booth at E3 2010 and "bam, our game is there." That may sound like a long time to wait, but we get this feeling that an announcement may precede next year's show and we'd honestly be surprised if it didn't hit the Internet some time in 2009. Perhaps the bottom line is that it won't be something "official;" it'll be more of a leak that hits the gaming world like a ton of bricks…we've seen it happen before. As of now, just about everyone assumes this mystery game is Twisted Metal but Jaffe insists that no such project has ever been officially confirmed. There's all sorts of evidence, of course, but evidence isn't the same thing as having a press release in your inbox.
For our part, we have no comment on the matter. Even if we knew what this project was, we wouldn't go tellin' you unless we were staring at a big ol' green light.
"That may sound like a long time to wait, but we get this feeling that an announcement may precede next year's show and we'd honestly be surprised if it didn't hit the Internet some time in 2008."
I think that's meant to be 2009 but I don't know much so sorry if I'm wrong 😀 LOL
I'd like a new Twisted Metal, would be awesome IMO.
Baaah. Still recovering. 😉
It is kind of disappointing to hear that but if it isn't TM than that would be double the heartbreak.I guess it's smart of him since he's probably seen all of the games that will be release this year so why throw his game into the chaos.No biggie It's been 9 years and I am still playing black and have no intentions to stop:D
He's going to ride the hype train until next year? Better be good or he's going to be dubbed Molyneux part 2.
Molyneux=gaming's biggest fail talker.

Fine with me, there are so many great games coming in the future.
At least he's honest, but could you freakin imagine a PS3 Twisted Metal?
Dang, that sucks. I really want to see what he's working on!
I tought it would have been a teaser trailer at E3, especially considering that part of a memo from Jaffe to another developer "leaked" out a couple of weeks ago which was describing a sequence that may have been for his new game.
I still have some slim hope, he would be the type of person to say it isnt going to be shown and then he shows it to maximum effect cause noone was expecting it.
