Guillermo del Toro, he of Pan’s Labyrinth and Hellboy fame, has said he’s working with a “big company” on some game titles.

Speaking with MTV News, del Toro also said since he is no longer attached to The Hobbit film, he’d like to create a game of it akin to a “revolution”.

“One of the things we’re announcing in the next few weeks is a big deal with a big company,” he said. “We’re going to do games that are going to be technically and narratively very interesting.

“It’s not a development deal. We’re going to do it. We’re doing them. And we’re going to announce it soon enough.”

No further details were provided by del Toro, who jokingly said the company he’s working with “”would probably shoot me in the head” if he revealed any thing more.
