According to the official description, the two will “offer insight into their creative vision and the driving forces behind their artistic pursuits” while also revisiting fond memories of their own works. Del Toro and Kojima of course were set to work on Silent Hills together before the game was cancelled.
Bethesda’s Todd Howard and comedian Pete Holmes are also scheduled as keynote speakers at DICE summit.
