Previously just a rumor, it was officially announced this weekend on Spike VGX that Telltale Games is in fact developing a new video game series based on the HBO hit “Game of Thrones.” You can see the announcement trailer below.
“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.”
Telltale’s “Game of Thrones” will launch its debut chapter in 2014 possibly in conjunction with the fourth season. Check back here for more details on the game as we learn them.
