Jaffe's New Game Coming In 2010?
Some people were disappointed when David Jaffe left Sony to set up his own studio; after all, he was responsible for some of the finest PS2 games ever (God of War and God of War II, Twisted Metal: Black), and we all know he'd knock God of War III out of the park.
But we still have faith in the Santa Monica team for GoWIII, and we've been waiting for new details concerning Jaffe's new project. His studio, Eat Sleep Play, has been quiet recently, but that's only because they're just getting started. We still have no idea what their mystery game is, but Jaffe hinted at the possibility of a 2010 release, and further said he'd be heading to Sony to talk about it. The quote directly from his blog-
"As for promoting the new game, when is that, you ask? Well at least I hope you ask! Who knows. Going to visit Sony today but we prob. won't pick a launch day. My gut/guess tells me we're looking sometime in 2010. Certainly not later than that. Perhaps sooner."
Okay, so here's the real question: because Jaffe isn't providing us with any specific clues, what do you want the game to be? Action/adventure like GoW? Something more unique like Twisted Metal? See, we've been wanting a Twisted Metal for the PlayStation 3 for quite a while, and some rumors in the past have led us to believe that Eat Sleep Play is working on it. The only caveat to this idea is that Jaffe has said his studio wants to focus more on "simpler" or "more casual" titles; games a lot of people can sit down and enjoy. You know, he wants to adopt a pick-up-and-play mentality. So...does something like Twisted Metal qualify? Er...
