Telltale announced that they would be developing a Game of Thrones title during Spike TV’s VGX awards this weekend, but an HBO press release today indicated the partnership with the developer will last for multiple years with multiple games scheduled for release.
“The multi-year, multi-title partnership between Telltale and HBO Global Licensing is targeted to premiere digitally in 2014 with an episodic game series for home consoles, PC/Mac, and mobile devices,” according to the HBO release.
The release didn’t specify on any specific platform destinations for the game.
In the release, Telltale Games co-founder and CEO Dan Connors said working with HBO on a Game of Thrones series is a “natural fit” for the studio.
“This partnership will create an experience that will captivate the huge, global Game of Thrones audience,” Connors said. “It will put them in control of the epic stories of warfare, intrigue, violence and revenge that we know and love.”
Josh Goodstadt, director of global licensing for HBO, returned the affection, saying the premium television network is “delighted” to work with Telltale on the series of games.
“Our fans are always looking for new, exciting ways to engage with the Game of Thrones brand and this game series will put them right in the middle of the action by letting them decide where the story will lead,” Goodstadt said. “This brings a whole new dimension to the world of Westeros.”
The Emmy Award-winning TV drama is based on the bestselling fantasy book series A Song of Ice and Fire by George R.R. Martin.
