Guillermo Del Toro doesn’t want back in the gaming industry. He lightheartedly said.
“I have proven to be the albatross of video games. I joined THQ, and THQ goes broke. I join Kojima, and Kojima leaves Konami.”
“I have decided, in order not to destroy anyone else’s life, I will never again get involved in video games. Otherwise, I’ll join someone and his house will explode, or something.”
Del Toro had said he might make a game with Kojima but now it’s out of the question.
“I went to the side of Kojima, because he’s a master, and I can gladly say that we are friends and I love his work and I will continue learning from him as a friend,” he continued. “But if I join another video game, World War 3 will start.”
Del Toro is not coming back to gaming and nobody can blame him. From the failed project Insane, co directing at Sundown, and Silent Hill. It’s just sad because he did have some really good ideas.
