Guest Staring- Twisted Metal news!
Want to learn some industry jargon? When a game has gone gold, it means that it's officially finished production and all that data is ready to be put onto a disk.
Well, Twisted Metal is now that. Gold. Ready for its release date of Feb 14th of this year. So... rest assured, it won't be delayed at this point, unless the world encounters a sudden shortage of plastic.
You know what else is gold? Rift, apparently. As revealed in a press release held by Trion Worlds, the MMO made $100 million dollars in it's first year. This may not be that surprising- the game had gathered over a million accounts within the first four months of its release alone.
And in the same announcement, they exposed their new budget of 85 million dollars to spend on their latest project, End of Nations, and on Defiance, a MMO shooter which is intended to have its own TV tie-in on the Syfy channel.
Two bits of news in one article. That's economical journalism right there.
