David Jaffe, the mind behind Twisted Metal and God of War, revealed in a recent interview with Gamesindustry.biz that his next game will be a browser-based, free to play third person shooter. Jaffe, who recently left Eat Sleep Play in order to form his own San Diego-based studio, was in town during E3 to shop his concept around to publishers.

“I had probably 10 concepts and I wasn’t sure which one I really wanted to focus on, so a lot of my time has been spent whittling that down and finally saying, ‘This is the one.’ So I’m fleshing that out and generating assets for a lot of concept art… kinda just getting up a rough prototype, and then just figuring out who the team exactly is going to be.” Jaffe explained, “That’s what a lot of my meetings have been about today [at E3]. From that spectrum of games I had [in mind], I had people saying, ‘Hey Jaffe, we want you to come work on this big triple- or quadruple-A next-gen thing’ and the kind of team you need for that is very different from what we’re ultimately doing, which is a free-to-play, browser-based, third-person shooter.”
