Rumors have been heard for some time that Lucid Games, Responsable of Destruction AllStars, are in charge of developing a new installment of Twisted Metal, the violent PlayStation driving game. Neither of the two companies, neither the developer itself nor Sony, have confirmed the existence of this project, but today several users have noticed a change in the LinkedIn profile of one of the Lucid Games workers that could give more veracity to the rumors.
Drew Williams-Rostron, Technical Designer at Lucid Games, has updated his LinkedIn profile to reflect that he has been working on an unannounced project in charge of said company since August of last year. Apparently he is no longer involved in development (at least it seems that he stopped being in October 2021), but he defines it as “an unannounced triple A from a flagship IP for PS5”, something that would fit with the information that speaks of a possible return of the saga Twisted Metal with a new installment for the next generation PlayStation console.
