By Kes Eylers-Stephenson,
The Twisted Metal reboot that everyone knows is secretly in the works has a new director, all but confirming the existence of the project and the news that PlayStation Studio Firesprite has taken over the project.

Spotted by ResetEra (thanks, PushSquare), former Motorstorm director Matt Southern has made a important career change. He has moved from Destruction: All-Stars developer and original Twisted Metal reboot caretakers Lucid Games to Firesprite Games.

Both studios are situated in Liverpool, but more than that, Southern appears to have been a key figure in the PS5 Twisted Metal reboot rumours given his prior experience in the destructive modern arcade racers in the Motorstorm series developed by now-defunct PlayStation Studio Evolution. Is it a coincidence that he is now at Firesprite, possibly working on yet another destructive car combat game? We think not, especially with that 2023 TV show on the way!

Hey, I'm Kes! I'm a Staff Writer, and I've been here since 2021. What do I like? The Outer Wilds is top notch. The Witcher 3 blew my mind over the course of five years completing it. I want Burnout back — I really miss crunching mechanical wonders into walls to the sound of Guns N' Roses. Cool, now we are acquainted, I'll see you around.
