Director Guillermo Del Toro has revealed he’s working on multiple video game projects. In an interview with MTV, the Pans Labyrinth and Hellboy Director said:
“One of the things we’re announcing in the next few weeks is a big deal with a big company. We’re going to do games that are going to be technically and narratively very interesting. It’s not a development deal. We’re going to do it. We’re doing them. And we’re going to announce it soon enough.”
Del Toro unfortunately couldn’t give MTV anymore details, saying that if he did, the ‘big company’ “would probably shoot me in the head.”
Del Toro was initially on board to direct a film adaptation of The Hobbit, but that fell through. However, could he be about to oversee a game based on J.R.R. Tolkien’s classic title?
Hopefully, ‘soon enough’ won’t be very far away!
So, Train2Game students, what do you think about the prospect of Guillermo Del Toro having a hand in the development of a video game? What do you think the game will be? And what would you like it to be? And who is the mysterious big company?
