Guillermo del Toro has stated that after Silent Hills, canceled in his opinion in an inexplicable way, he will no longer collaborate in the development of games.
Guillermo del Toro does not think he will take care of collaborating in the development of games after the cancellation of Silent Hills : the famous director is convinced that a unique opportunity has been missed; and it will remain so, at least as far as it is concerned.
After having to explain the references to Silent Hill made during The Game Awards 2021, del Toro said he loves the idea that creating a video game can serve as an exercise in storytelling .
However that will likely never happen again, as its presence appears to be a bad omen , at least in this area, and the inexplicable cancellation of Silent Hills would prove it.
Winner of two Oscars in 2018, best film and best director, for his “The Shape of Water”, del Toro is one of the directors who could give a lot to video games , but it is possible that this eventuality will never materialize at this point. .
Unless his good friend Hideo Kojima fails to involve him in one of his next projects: maybe the Japanese game director could come up with the right idea for del Toro to reconsider his words.
