Guillermo Del Toro has not had the best experience stepping into the gaming industry. He recently made a few statement referring to the cancellation of the Silent Hill game that will never be, his canceled game Insane from the now out of business THQ. Furthermore the split between Konami and Hideo Kojima seemed to put the nail in the coffin at least for now. Del Toro has a few statements citing first about Silent Hill
“What we wanted to do with the game – and we were very much in agreement on this – was to take the technology and make it as cutting-edge as we could in creating terror in the house. The idea was very, very atmosphere-drenched.
Del Toro also makes a statement concerning his future in the gaming industry
“Well, you know, I’ve tried twice and I don’t know if I’ll ever come back to the form. In one instance, the company went down, and in the second, the completely unexpected happened, which was Kojima and Konami separating. It’s kind of left me reeling.”
All in all can you blame the guy? He made his claim to fame in Hollywood you can just look at the numbers of Pacific Rim, Del Toro doesn’t need the gaming industry and sadly this might push away future directors or others to put any effort into working with the gaming industry again.
