I’m trying to make a big game, very edgy game with an extremely small team.” he told audiences at DICE, as reported by Gamasutra.”I have no intentions of ever changing anything I do in order for it to be a hit or sell more, it’s something I am not going to do and I don’t want to do. I have to create something I want to play, and at the same time figure out ways it will be appealing to the market.”Del Toro also explained why the pair were interested in working together.
