As a fan of the Song of Ice and Fire series (Winds of Winter, get over here!) and the Walking Dead games by Telltale, I am super pumped up by this. If this was about Dunk & Egg (90 years before Game of Thrones) that would be awesome, but I would be fine with it being original content.
IGN has learned from multiple sources that Telltale Games is developing a game based on George R.R. Martin’s Game of Thrones.
It’s worth noting that, while “Game of Thrones” is the title of HBO’s series based on Martin’s books, the series itself is actually known as A Song of Ice and Fire, and the first book is titled Game of Thrones. It’s currently unclear what title Telltale will be using for its game, and whether the storyline will be based on the show, books, or something entirely new.
We reached out to Telltale and received the following statement from Steve Allison, SVP of Publishing:
“We get these sorts of rumors about what we could be working on next cropping up all the time. Officially we have no comment.”
