George R.R. Martin Rumored To Be Working With From Software On A New Open-World Game
After eight years and eight seasons, HBO’s Game of Thrones has finally come to an end, an anticlimactic end, but an end nonetheless. The popular TV series was adapted from a Song of Ice and Fire by George R.R. Martin, who hopefully, is now getting around to finally finishing the books.
A recent blog post by Martin, however, reveals that the best-selling author is working on a few other projects, including a new video game. As Martin talks about what’s next for him with the end of Game of Thrones, he casually drops that aside from other TV shows, he’s also consulted on a video game being developed in Japan.
The remark has rekindled rumors that the best-selling author is working with Dark Souls and Sekiro developer FromSoftware on a new open-world title. According to Gematsu "a person familiar with ongoings" at the studio confirmed that George R.R. Martin is indeed collaborating with Dark Souls creator Hidetaka Miyazaki on an open-world title codenamed “GR”. The project, which is being published by Bandai Namco, has been in development for three years and will officially be announced at this year’s E3.
The accuracy of the information has yet to be confirmed but with E3 just a few weeks away we won’t have to wait too long for confirmation. As always, we’ll let you know as soon as anything remotely-related to GR pops up.
