Telltale working on game based on Game of Thrones license — Rumor

For those a fan of not only Telltale Games’ excellent adventure games (The Walking Dead, Fables) but of literary and TV hit Game of Thrones, we might be in for a treat.

According to IGN, they have learned from “multiple” sources that Telltale is developing a game based on George R. R. Martin’s Game of Thrones — or A Song of Ice and Fire — for those more keen on the books.

It’s still not clear whether Telltale will be using the books or TV show as inspiration.

When pressed for a comment, Telltale SVP of Publishing had this to say:

We get these sorts of rumors about what we could be working on next cropping up all the time. Officially we have no comment.

So, in videogame-speak, that’s more or less a “yes, we are, but can’t comment on it yet,” no? As someone who’s a fan of Telltale’s games and the Game of Thrones TV show, I’m all for this.

Now, make sure to let us kill a Lannister or two in the game and we might have another Game of the Year contender, Telltale.
