In a new conversation on the Happy Sad Confused podcast, del Toro was asked about whether or not he was teasing anything tied to Silent Hill during The Game Awards. In short, del Toro made it clear that he wasn't, and he was instead just trying to have some fun. "Not at all. Look, it's just one of those things in my life that makes no sense. But I kind of just wanted to tickle the ribs of Konami a little bit," he explained. He went on to say that he still regrets that Silent Hills never came to fruition, largely because he had so much hope for it. "I don't understand, that was so perfect," he said of the canceled title. "The match, what we were going to do, was so enthralling."
Despite Silent Hills getting shut down by Konami, del Toro still had nothing but good things to say about his time working with Kojima. "But Kojima is one of the guys that is a filmmaker. [...] I love talking to filmmakers and storytellers," he said. Despite this love for the Metal Gear Solid and Death Stranding creator, del Toro also acknowledged that he doesn't see himself working in video games again. "Gaming, as a storytelling exercise, fascinates me," del Toro said. "I would not develop a game again because I'm the albatross of video gaming. But I am very intrigued by the devices and how you learn them."
