If you were crossing your fingers in hopes for a Twisted Metal multiplayer beta before the game's full launch, it sounds like you might be disappointed.

Speaking during a panel at the San Diego Comic Con expo this weekend, series creator David Jaffe confirmed that the game would only be getting 'private and semi-private' be testing phases.

Without being too specific the producer said a game like Twisted Metal doesn't need a very large beta testing phase, according to GameSpot, and that a private beta would garner the 'more focused' results they require.

In the same presentation Jaffe also denied knowledge of the possibility of a Twisted Metal Collector's Edition, and confirmed the game's ESRB M-rating. Check out the latest gameplay footage if the game in action here.
