After what happened with THQ as well as Hideo Kojima, director Guillermo del Toro stated he is walking away from the video game medium.
In a conversation with GamerHubTV (provided below, thanks to Destructoid), legendary filmmaker Guillermo delete Toro is well aware of this string of catastrophe that has followed them throughout his journeys in video game growth. As a result, he boasts he is done with that is a and will remain basically as a fan in addition to gamer. The Hellboy and Pacific Rim director originally worked with THQ and developer Volition with a project called Insane, that has been originally intended to start on PlayStation 3 and also Xbox 360 back in 2013 as the first component of a trilogy. Unfortunately, advancement on the game seemed to be cancelled just as THQ had been going bankrupt. Naturally, we all remember the sleazy shenanigans regarding Konami pertaining to the termination of Silent Hills, which was to become a collaborative project between delete Toro, Metal Gear creator Hideo Kojima and also Norman Reedus of The Jogging Dead fame. Now, Kojima is anticipated to be leaving Konami after Metal Gear Solid Sixth v: The Phantom Pain launches inside of a few weeks.
Here’s precisely what del Toro had to point out about his endeavors in the gaming market:
I have proven to be the albatross connected with video games, I joined up with THQ, and THQ goes pennyless. I join Kojima, in addition to Kojima leaves Konami. I have decided, in order not to destroy anyone else’s life, We’ve decided I will no more get involved in video games. In any other case, I’ll join someone and his house can explode, or something.
The ordeal between Kojima and Konami resulted in all kinds of negative coverage on the publisher’s behalf, such as the dismantling associated with Kojima Productions and the removing the famous tagline "A Hideo Kojima Game" from the recent roster of Metal Gear games. Using Konami employees being forced to work below harsh work conditions, I’m not astonished. Nevertheless, I enjoy Guillermo del Toro for being therefore lighthearted about the 2 yrs he spent working together with THQ and the time he or she spent working with Kojima.
