Rumors circulated last month that Telltale Games, the makers of The Walking Dead game, were working on a new episodic series based upon Game of Thrones. As Joystiq reported on Dec 7, the developer finally confirmed this news as true during the Saturday’s VGX event with a brief teaser announcing the upcoming series based on the hit HBO show.
The game will unfold in Telltale Games’ signature episodic format. The developer isn’t revealing who will star in the game or when in the saga the story will take place, but did confirm that the series will be based off of the television show rather than the George R.R. Martin books. However, Telltale isn’t saying whether or not any of the actual actors from the HBO show will be reprising their roles for the upcoming game.
Telltale Games’ Game of Thrones episodic series is expected to release in 2014. With The Walking Dead: Season Two soon to release and the newly announced Tales from the Borderlands also expected next year, Telltale Games fans have plenty of officially licensed franchises coming their way.
