In his latest blog post, George R.R. Martin confirmed that he has consulted on a brand new video game out of Japan. This further strengths the rumours that surfaced earlier this year about George R.R. Martin working with FromSoftware for a new video game.
As George R.R. Martin said:
“As a producer, I’ve got five shows in development at HBO (some having nothing whatsoever to do with the world of Westeros), two at Hulu, one on the History Channel. I’m involved with a number of feature projects, some based upon my own stories and books, some on material created by others. There are these short films I am hoping to make, adaptations of classic stories by one of the most brilliant, quirky, and original writers our genre has ever produced. I’ve consulted on a video game out of Japan. And then there’s Meow Wolf…”
Now the reason I’m saying that this is a confirmation of a new game is because all the released Game of Thrones games were developed by West developers. George R.R. Martin has not worked yet with any Japanese developer for a game, so this must be a new unannounced game.
As said, earlier this year some rumours surfaced, suggesting that George R.R. Martin was working with the developers of Bloodborne and the Dark Souls series for a new game. FromSoftware has not confirmed anything yet but we’ll be sure to keep you posted!

While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved – and still does – the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
