I love Guillermo del Toro. He made The Devil's Backbone. He made Hellboy. He made Pan's Labyrinth. And now he's making games. Here's what del Toro said to MTV News:
"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."
Consider that the announcement of the upcoming announcement, then. Obviously, we will let you know the moment del Toro makes his big announcement, but until then, it's all speculation.
I wonder if del Toro can do it. Game developers always think they could make great movies, and directors always think they could make great games, yet this is often not the case. Hopefully, del Toro surrounds himself with competent, talented people that no the game "space" and comes up with a winning title or two.
God, I hope so. The game industry is so full of re-hashes and sequels, it would be nice to see the product of a true visionary like del Toro on a console or PC.
