Title: 989 Studios' cancelled car combat game

Check it out

So apparently back in 2009 this article appeared and showed off concept art for a 989 car combat game that never happened, simply known as DR.
Not sure if it would have become a Twisted Metal game, but considering the Yellow Jacket and Mr. Slam looking vehicles... it probably would have played a lot like TM.
Anyone know more about this?

I'm guessing these concepts were passed onto Incognito for the development of TMB.  I might be wrong though.

like oil and water, 989 and vehicle combat don't mix.

Good thing Sony realised the road they were traveling on before they committed, guess they almost forgot.

As much as most of us hate 989, I personally wouldn't mind another car combat game from ANYBODY. HD remasters are probably more likely.

Yep. To be honest, they got car combat better than most. I still see 3 and 4 as better than stuff like Cel-Damage, WWE Crush Hour and even Roadkill.

A very functional design that throws physics to the wind. I'm assuming when firing a special, both Warthog and anyone in front of him instantly explode and launches their flaming wreckage to opposite ends of the map. A win-win in my book.
