Telltale games was tipped to be working on a new video game based on Game of Thrones back in November. Telltale has now officially confirmed that a video game based on Game of Thrones is in the works. This won’t be a normal game, it will be an episodic title. Telltale has had great success with episodic games like The Walking Dead in the past.
Telltale isn’t offering much in the way of detail about the game at this time. It is being made in partnership with HBO and will be based on the HBO series. Interestingly, Telltale says the partnership with it and HBO Global Licensing is for a multi-year, multi-title partnership.
That hints that other Game of Thrones games will be coming. Telltale offered a teaser trailer for the game. The game publisher will also be making another episodic game called Tales from the Borderlands: A Telltale Games Series. That game will be based on characters from Borderlands 2. There is no exact launch date for either of these games. It’s also unclear which game will come first.
“Since the very beginning, Telltale’s goal has been to work alongside the most talented and respected forces in entertainment, bringing their worlds to the interactive space as no other game studio can,” said Dan Connors, co-founder and CEO of Telltale Games. “Working with HBO to develop a new game series based on Game of Thrones is a natural fit for our studio. This partnership will create an experience that will captivate the huge, global Game of Thrones audience. It will put them in control of the epic stories of warfare, intrigue, violence and revenge that we know and love.”Filed Under: Gadgets News, Gaming News
