Guillermo del Toro doesn't seem to be making another game

Tech Highlights:

  • del Toro revealed that he was not working on any Silent Hill-related projects during an appearance on the Happy Sad Confused podcast. This question arose when del Toro joked at The Game Awards 2021 that he liked the art direction of Silent Hill and hoped that we would all receive a new one soon.

  • Guillermo del Toro, an Academy Award-winning director who worked on Konami’s Silent Hills project alongside Hideo Kojima, has stated that he will not attempt to produce a game again.

Despite saying that he loves the idea of gaming “as a storytelling exercise,” he doesn’t think he “would develop a game again because [he’s] the albatross of video gaming.”

While that may not be the news fans of del Toro’s work may have wanted to hear, he at least shared a few more thoughts about the canceled Silent Hills project he was once working on with Kojima.

del Toro said these same words in 2015, and it appears he is still sticking to his promise.

“It’s just one of those things in my life that makes no sense,” del Toro said of Silent Hills’ cancellation. “I kind of just wanted to tickle the ribs of Konami, because I don’t understand. That was so perfect, what we were going to do was so enthralling.”

Silent Hills was announced following the release of P.T., a terrifying gameplay experience that, once completed, revealed itself as a teaser for the game that would be led by del Toro and Kojima and would star The Walking Dead’s Norman Reedus.

The game would never see the light of day and Konami would even remove P.T. from the PlayStation Store in 2015.

While the trio of del Toro, Kojima, and Reedus never got to make Silent Hills, they all did work together on Kojima Productions’ Death Stranding. Reedus was the star of the game, while del Toro lent his likeness to the character known as Deadman. Prior to the Konami drama, del Toro was once working on Insane for Saints Row developer Volition, but that survival horror game also failed to make it across the finish line.
