Back in the early days of video games, there was a particular title produced by Sony on the original PlayStation by the name of Twisted Metal. For gamers who have been playing games long enough, you might be familiar with this title, and you also might be interested to learn that Sony has recently confirmed that the franchise is being developed into a TV series.

This was confirmed during an investor relations presentation where Sony Pictures Entertainment Chairman and CEO Tony Vinciquerra was quoted as saying, “We have a TV show we just agreed to get underway that will be developed from the IP on PlayStation, it’s called Twisted Metal. It’s a game that was put out many years ago and we’re going to develop a TV series around that.”

He does not mention any other details about the series, such as who will be directing it, who will be writing the script, who are the cast, and most important of all, when will it be released. However, the fact that a series is being made is pretty exciting on its own. This is because of the nature of the game which is vehicular combat, which we suppose for a slightly more modern reference, you could think of it as being similar to the Death Race movie, or maybe a more violent version of Rocket League.

The latest Twisted Metal title was released back in 2012 and there were talks about it being made into a movie as well, but that never happened.
