Game of Thrones Author George R.R. Martin Consulted on a Japanese Video Game

Rumors have it pointing to From Software's next project


HBO's Game of Thrones TV show may be over, but fans of the A Song of Ice and Fire series still have more novels to look forward to from author George R.R. Martin. The creator of the saga also stays plenty busy outside of Westeros—sometimes to the chagrin of those anxious to read the rest of his story—and one recent project had him consulting on a Japanese video game.


While the specifics are currently under wraps, Martin mentioned the collaboration in a recent blog post. All he said about it was, "I've consulted on a video game out of Japan," and it would be easy to leave it at that for now, right?


Well, for those of you who like playing around with rumors, the hot one surrounding this project is that it has to do with the next game out of Dark Souls, Sekiro, and Bloodborne developer FromSoftware. Take this with as big a grain of salt as necessary, but rumor has this being a Norse mythology-centric game from director Hidetaka Miyazaki, with Martin on board as one of the lead writers. 


In addition to gameplay said to have players exploring an open world on horseback, invading kingdoms and taking down other rulers, rumors have the project codenamed GR, or Great Rune. If these rumors pan out we should see something concrete at this year's E3 2019 event. 


Or nothing could come of it at all! Enjoy that rock of salt and feel free to speculate further in the comments.
