Is FromSoftware Working On A Game Of Thrones Game?

George R.R. Martin, who was essential in creating the Game of Thrones series (based on A Song of Ice and Fire book series), has been recently consulting with a Japanese developer team. Just as the TV series has hit the end of the road. What a weird coincidence…

The writer said in a blog post that recently, he was consulting with a Japanese team about a video game. In March, a video published by Spawn Wave, said that FromSoftware, the developers of the Souls titles and Bloodborne, is working on a new project, which would be an open-world game. One of its main writers would be George R.R. Martin, and we could visit multiple kingdoms that we could take over if we execute their respective kings. Isn’t this formula familiar from somewhere? We might have seen this before…

A person familiar with the events told Gematsu that there’s a project within FromSoftware that runs under the codename GR (only the initials were allowed to be published…), which has been in development in three years. Therefore, the team started working on it almost immediately after Dark Souls III (Spring 2016!). It would be an open-world title with horse riding, and apparently, George R.R. Martin is working together with Hidetaka Miyazaki, the head of FromSoftware. The game would be published by Bandai Namco, and it would be announced during Microsoft’s E3 press conference, possibly as a multiplatform title.

So, the Japanese team might be working on more than just a potential Bloodborne sequel – they could also be making a licensed game, which could work out well for them. Telltale’s Game of Thrones wasn’t that terrible as Cyanide’s title in 2012, but FromSoftware could do better. If the rumour is true (and why wouldn’t it be, if Martin openly mentioned the Japanese link?), then we’ll see at least one big surprise during Microsoft’s E3 show. (Or it could have been one of them.)
