Telltale Games, the company behind the hugely successful “Walking Dead” video games series is reportedly developing a new game based on everyone’s favorite fantasy series, “Game of Thrones.” IGN has reported that they have heard from multiple sources that the developer is working on the game adaptation.
However, it is not currently known whether the game would be based on the HBO series or the source material, “A Song of Ice and Fire,” by George R.R. Martin.
When asked, Telltale Games responded simply,
“We get these sorts of rumors about what we could be working on next cropping up all the time. Officially we have no comment.”
If anyone is going to make a “Game of Thrones” video game, I would want Telltale to be one of the developers. If it is anything like the “Walking Dead” season games it would be massively successful and masterfully well done (I am assuming, of course.) What we don’t need is another fuck up like the last “Game of Thrones” video game that failed both in the eyes of critics and fans.
The HBO series is based on the novels from “A Song of Ice and Fire” written by Martin. He began the first volume of the series, A Game of Thrones, in 1991. He published it in 1996. Martin gradually extended his originally intended trilogy to seven volumes, the fifth of which, A Dance with Dragons, took him five years to write before its publication in 2011. Martin’s work on his sixth, The Winds of Winter, is still underway.
