A while back we reported on a series of rumors surrounding movie director Guillermo Del Toro’s (Hellboy, Pan’s Labyrinth) possible involvement in game development with publisher THQ. And while any information on the games themselves have remained under wraps, the director himself confirmed the collaboration.

“We’re working together,”┬árevealed Guillermo del Toro, “Hopefully everything will come together in the next few days and we can formally announce it and so forth. But we are talking about huge games, huge world creation and long deadlines…It’s horror…but it’s a very different type of horror game. It’s not survival horror. It’s truly a strange, geeky mix. It’s a Lovecraftian thing. Let’s leave it at that.”

THQ itself also had something to announce, as the company recently signed another deal with Sumthing Else Music Works, bringing many of its game’s soundtracks to the masses. Available both as digital downloads and CDs, the full list of soundtracks can be found below.

“We are very excited to partner with THQ in bringing their video game soundtracks to the marketplace,” said Andy Uterano, President of Sumthing Else Music Works. “Our mission as a label is to support and enhance the lifestyle experience of the gamer by offering the latest and greatest soundtracks so they can enjoy and revisit their favorite gaming moments through the music.”

“Great music, quite simply, elevates the gameplay experience,” said Germaine Gioia, Senior VP of Sumthing Else Licensing and Merchandising. “This partnership underscores our commitment to core gamers as we continue to offer new and exciting ways to engage with our brands, be it merchandise, original programming, and, now, music.”
