At this good time of Christmas, director and screenwriter Guillermo del Toro tweeted a message to Konami, in which he didn’t hold back, for the second time now.
“F**** Konami”, Says Guillermo del Toro, Again
Guillermo del Toro worked with Hideo Kojima and Konami on a Silent Hills game, but the game got canceled and del Toro isn’t happy about that. Previously, del Toro said the same thing to Konami. He said that canceling Silent Hills was a “moronic” move.
However, recently, del Toro used a swear word again, in his message to Konami.
Important Holiday messages that right true today as they always have: Feliz Navidad. Happy Holidays. Fuck Konami.

Currently, Guillermo del Toro is working with Hideo Kojima on his upcoming game called Death Stranding. Guillermo himself appeared in Death Stranding’s recent Game Awards 2016 trailer too, along with Mads Mikkelsen.
It seems like Guillermo is pretty frustrated with his role in the gaming industry. He worked on a horror game with THQ but that was a failure because THQ got bankrupt. Then, he joined Konami and worked on the Silent Hill series and that got canceled too. However, Konami claims that they’re still committed to the Silent Hill series and the Silent Hill title that got canceled was in early stages, not too far in development.
In an interview with GameSpot last year, he said:
“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 will never again get involved in video games. Otherwise, I’ll join someone and his house will explode, or something.”
So there you have it, guys. Things are hot between Konami and Guillermo del Toro. For more, keep it set on GeeksULTD.
