Telltale Games has been on a roll as of late, with their award winning game series, The Walking Dead, and the recently released first episode of The Wolf Among Us, based on the comic series Fables. According to IGN and their sources, though, Telltale is already working on their next title, and rumor has it that it’s the Game of Thrones series.
It’s unclear at this point whether the game will be based on the series of books (titled A Song of Ice and Fire), or the Game of Thrones HBO series that’s based on the series of books. When IGN went to Telltale for official confirmation, the developer’s SVP of Publishing, Steve Allison, came back with this response,
We get these sorts of rumors about what we could be working on next cropping up all the time. Officially we have no comment.
That’s far from a definite confirmation, but I’m not surprised that they aren’t responding to the rumor. The company definitely has their plate full, working on the hotly anticipated The Walking Dead game’s sequel, as well as putting out the next 4 episodes of The Wolf Among Us, so even if this turns out to be true, I wouldn’t expect to see it for quite some time.
The Game of Thrones television series has been extremely popular and successful in it’s 3 season run, and if there’s ever to be a game based on the series, it seems like getting Telltale to develop would be a no-brainer. Considering their work on the 2012 Game of the Year The Walking Dead, and their tendency to release their games in “chapter” format, it seems like a perfect fit for book-turned-television show.
