Guillermo Del Toro, film director and co-creator of P.T. and the aborted Silent Hills, has taken to Twitter to launch a tirade against the much maligned Konami. He kicked things off by tweeting a simple “FUCK KONAMI”, linking to the new trailer for Kojima Productions’ Death Stranding.
Clearly still a bit peeved by Konami’s treatment of himself, Kojima, and the Silent Hill franchise, del Toro followed this up by saying "Konami cancelling SH after PT is one of the most moronic things I've ever witnessed."
It would be fair to say he’s not best pleased with Konami’s actions as of late, and neither are a large chunk of gamers in truth. The Japanese publisher was once a giant of the games industry but has burnt a lot of bridges and left a lot of IPs to flounder over the years.
I know one thing for sure - I wouldn’t want to be in charge of Konami’s PR department today.
It seems you can't move for anti-Konami sentiment in the industry tonight. Is its time in the games industry coming to a close? Will the curse of del Toro strike again with Death Stranding?
