"If I join another video game, World War III will start" says Del Toro

In an interview with Shack News at San Diego Comic Con, Guillermo Del Toro expressed his unlucky run within the video game industry.

“I have proven to be the albatross of video games. 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 have decided I will never again get involved in video games. Otherwise, I’ll join someone and his house will explode, or something.”

Del Toro was working with THQ on the horror title inSANE as well as Silent Hills with Hideo Kojima. Here's what he had to say about the two,

"I was in an apprenticeship. I learned a lot from Kojima-san, of course, and I learned a lot from my experience at THQ. I did. It changed the way I see narrative. We put two years of work in THQ. It was insane. We mapped it out, we did the viable, we did the outlines, we did the screenplay. We did a bunch of stuff. I know some of the tricks, or the stuff that I wanted to learn, I learned. Then I went to the side of Kojima-san, 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. But I am not… if I join another video game, World War III will start.”

It's unfortunate because the talented director showed a lot of promise with both titles. Del Toro did state that he would still allow games to be made using his creations, he just doesn't want to have a direct hand in it.
