Games based on movies are typically rushed out — and it shows. That might be why we won't be getting a video game version of Guillermo del Toro's upcoming flick The Hobbit any time soon.
The movie is slated for 2012, which isn't enough time to tackle the game version as well del Toro explains. According to the director:
It's too ambitious to try and tackle that along with The Hobbit. We have such tight release dates.
Del Toro says that he and his team will be involved in The Hobbit game, but adds that he won't be as involved as he'd liked to be. Understandable, we hear he has a day job. Something about being a big time Hollywood director? Dunno.
