Alley of nightmares Director Guillermo del Toro says video game development isn’t his thing anymore.
On the Podcast Happy Sad Confused, the award-winning director who previously teamed up with Hideo Koijma to develop Konami’s horror survival video game Silent hills, has stated categorically that he does not think he will ever try video game development again.
Fans were curious about his status after his appearance at the Game Awards this year and commented on the hope that a new game Silent Hill would be released soon. Although he loves video games and game ideas, he doesn’t think he will develop another game because he has called himself a “video game albatross”.
“It’s just one of those things in my life that doesn’t make sense,” del Toro said of the Silent Hills cancellation. “I just wanted to tickle Konami’s ribs, because I don’t understand. It was so perfect, what we were going to do was so exciting.
While del Toro didn’t work with Kojima and Norman Reedus on Silent Hills, they did collaborate on the game Kojima Productions 2019. Death stranding in which del Toro and Reed star alongside others such as Mads Mikkelsen, Léa Seydoux, Margaret Qualley, Troy Baker, Tommie Earl Jenkins, Lindsay Wagner and Nicolas Winding Refn.
