The final episode of Game of Thrones aired on May 19th, ending an arguably spectacular series on all fronts and leaving fans arguing over the internet like never before. But while we continue to discuss how the show should have ended, George R.R Martin is onto greener pastures, producing more highly-anticipated adaptations, continuing his long-running book series and now, according to his recent blog post, consulting on a video game out of Japan as well.
George R.R. Martin
The snippet below comes from his blog post, reiterating his future plans:
And me? I’m still here, and I’m still busy. As a producer, I’ve got five shows in development at HBO (some having nothing whatsoever to do with the world of Westeros), two at Hulu, one on the History Channel. I’m involved with a number of feature projects, some based upon my own stories and books, some on material created by others. There are these short films I am hoping to make, adaptations of classic stories by one of the most brilliant, quirky, and original writers our genre has ever produced. I’ve consulted on a video game out of Japan. And then there’s Meow Wolf…This isn't the first time we've heard about George R.R. Martin working on a video game though. The Youtube channel Spawn Wave published a similar rumor previously, in which the Dark Souls developer, FromSoftware, was accordingly working on an open-world title with the author. Given the acronym "GR", the title is said to include various kingdoms, with leaders that can be killed for additional abilities. There aren't many other details to share, but you can watch the original video below for more:
Unfortunately, it's all speculation for now. However, if the rumor is to be believed, we'll know more about George R.R. Martin's involvement when Microsoft's E3 rolls around.
