Rumor: Guillermo del Toro’s game to be a sci-fi RPG trilogy

Saw it coming.

Ok, no we didn’t.

According to an anonymous source that spoke with MMOMFG, Pan’s Labyrinth director Guillermo del Toro’s announced-but-not-announced game is so ambitious that it may as well be shooting for the sky. Or, more aptly, space.

For one, it won’t be limited to a single game. Instead, del Toro’s collaborating with THQ on a massive sci-fi trilogy that’s, well, “along the lines of Mass Effect.” Apparently, though, it’ll also have Lovecraftian elements and focus on inter-dimensional travel through a series of portals. So yeah, Mass Effect 2.5 this is not.

Regardless, it sounds pretty promising. Let us punch Cthullu into another dimension and we’ll be able to die happy. Here’s hoping the rumor proves true when del Toro’s game is announced next month during the Spike TV VGAs.
