Is Eat Sleep Play's Project A New IP?
Most everyone has assumed that Eat Sleep Play and David Jaffe's latest game is a new Twisted Metal but recent evidence has come to light that implies otherwise...
It comes from Jaffe himself, who put up a new video over at his blog where he spoke about the coolness of God of War III being featured on Slurpee cups (there's even a new "Kratos Fury" flavor). Obviously, GoW has gone above and beyond any expectations Jaffe and the original crew likely had and he compares this to his new game. But his comments concerning future growth kinda imply that Eat Sleep Play's project is a new IP. I mean, doesn't it?
"Maybe with the sequel...usually the first ones don’t, you know, you got to build your fan base and it’s gotta do well. But hopefully we’re on the road, one day we can get something like that for what we’re working on."
It just doesn't sound like it involves a new TM. That's a well established franchise that has been "on the road" for years and besides, in the first part he mentions the possibility of a sequel and then says "usually the first ones don't" obtain such crazy popularity. It's all pointing towards a possible surprise from Jaffe and Eat Sleep Play, which could be very big news. I certainly want a new Twisted Metal but I'll trust just about anything that comes from this guy.
