Telltale Games, the studio behind the critically-acclaimed The Walking Dead game series, is now working on at least one Game of Thrones video game, IGN reports.


That's a perfect fit—and undoubtedly cool news to anyone who enjoys the murdery HBO series. IGN says they don't know when or where the game(s) would be set, but Telltale has a great track record, and although there haven't been any good Game of Thrones video games yet, who wouldn't love the thought of an episodic adventure series in Westeros filled with terrible, terrible choices?

Season two of The Walking Dead game series is slated to start later this year. No word on when this Game of Thrones game would launch, or how many games it would consist of, but the pieces fit. In a recent Reddit AMA, Telltale co-founder Dan Connors hinted that they had something big in the works: "We will be working on a few licenses that definitely fall into our dream IP scenario and we can't wait to announce those," he wrote.


We've reached out to Telltale for comment on this rumor, and will update should we hear back from them.

UPDATE: From Telltale exec Steve Allison: "We get these sorts of rumors about what we could be working on next cropping up all the time. Officially we have no comment."

I imagine a GoT game as an epic RPG or action-adventure in 3D - possibly open world - possibly not. But I don't see this translating so greatly to Telltale's formula. Time will tell I suppose. Personally, I'd most prefer to see a GoT strategy game - something like Age of Empires sprinkled with a little Civilization.
