Director Guillermo del Toro hasn't had the best of luck with getting his various video game projects off the ground. In fact, in an interview with ShackNews he suggested that he probably won't get involved in any more projects.
"I have proven to be the albatross of video games," del Toro said, jokingly. "I joined THQ, and THQ goes broke. I join Kojima, and Kojima leaves Konami. I have decided, in order not to destroy anyone else's life, I will never again get involved in video games. Otherwise, I'll join someone and his house will explode, or something."
Hideo Kojima and del Toro were set to collaborate on a new Silent Hill game, but the former's disintegrating relationship with Konami put paid to that pretty definitively. Previously, del Toro's work on survival horror Insane had to be abandoned after THQ went bust.
Despite the frustration of the Konami situation, del Toro says he still has a good relationship with Kojima, though it seem unlikely that the pair will ever collaborate on a new video game project.
"I went to the side of Kojima, because he's a master, and I can gladly say that we are friends and I love his work and I will continue learning from him as a friend," del Toro continued. "But if I join another video game, World War 3 will start."
