Bilson: inSANE franchise will take “eight to ten years” to complete

A bit insane. THQ core games VP Danny Bilson has said that the the recently announced inSANE trilogy, lead by Pan’s Labyrinth director Guillermo del Toro, will take eight to ten years to complete.

“This is an epic project. It’s going to take the next eight to ten years to build all three chapters of this game,” Bilson told StuffWeLike.

Del Toro added: “I think that what people need to understand, when you come from a medium like movies, is that the narrative medium of videogames is entirely different.

“The rules are different and the way you tell the story is different. You don’t come into this world and try to apply the same rules. I’m here to learn and try some crazy shit.”

The first game in the inSANE trilogy, announced at the Video Game Awards last weekend, has been in development for six months at Saints Row developer Volition, Inc. It’ll launch in 2013 for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC.

Thanks, MCV.
