Sony is reportedly planning to revive the Twisted Metal video game series seemingly alongside the franchise’s upcoming TV show.
In a recent video on Giant Bomb, GamesBeat’s Jeff Grubb said he’s heard that a Twisted Metal revival is in the works, but it still may be a ways off. VGC reports that they’ve also heard a new Twisted Metal game is on the way.

Since 2012’s Twisted metal reboot, there hasn’t ever been a mainline title in the series. Around the same time, there was word of a Twisted Metal movie that never came to fruition.
