Danny Bilson, the Vice President of Core Games at THQ has told StuffWeLike.com that the three games that will comprise THQ’s collaboration with movie director Guillermo Del Toro will take between eight and ten years to finalize. inSANE, a survival-horror game that is being developed by THQ-owned studio Volition Inc. and directed by Del Toro, was officially revealed at the VGA last weekend. Del Toro confirmed that the game has only been in development for about six months, and indicated that the first game won’t be released until 2013.
Though it might seem strange for a movie director to take the reins of a video game, Del Toro stated that he understands that the “narrative medium of videogames is entirely different [from those of movies]. […] The rules are different, the way you tell the story is different. You don’t come into this world and try to apply the same rules. I’m here to learn and try some crazy shit.”
