"gamer who wants to make a great game" will do so.
They plan to announce what it is and which studio is developing it at next month's VGA 2010 event. The film maker has "very interesting points of view".
"You've heard rumors of us working with a big film director who is actually a big gamer," Bilson said during his keynote at the IGDA Leadership Forum. Guillermo del Toro himself already blabbed about this huge project he's working on.
"He's a gamer who wants to make a great game," said Bilson, "and has very interesting points of view and is partnered very closely with myself and my writing partner, Paul." THQ "will be announcing the game title and the studio and all of that on the VGA awards in about a month." Del Toro's videogame will have 'Lovecraftian' themes apparently.
The VGAs are hosted by Spike TV and have over the years managed to become a serious and respected event for the videogames industry, playing host too many major announcements. They're like a very quick and mini-E3 as a Holiday treat.
