Wait, what's that? It's not April Fools Day yet? Huh, okay. There's a rumour doing the rounds that Dark Souls developer From Software is working on a new game in collaboration with A Song of Ice and Fire series author George R.R. Martin. Yes, you read that correctly.
Courtesy of internet scuttlebutt Liam Robertson in collaboration with the YouTube channel Spawn Wave, the rumour suggests that From Software is working on a new open-world IP. George R.R. Martin is one of the lead writers on the title, which will have you visiting a variety of kingdoms and stealing the abilities of its leaders once you kill them. Oh, and the cherry on top is that it'll be announced at E3 2019.
This is a rumour that's certainly out there to say the least, but our take on things? It's a load of rubbish. It has to be, surely? Anyway, what do you make of all this? Make a claim for the next Kit Harrington role in the comments below.

What’s interesting is that the author is known for his series explicit content, while From Sorware’s main director (Dark Souls 1,3 and Bloodborne) has talked about the effort he puts in his games to be tasteful. From also doesn’t need help writing games, so I’m doubtful of this one.
I'm doubtful of this rumour, though a Game of Thrones video game could be excellent if done right.
Think about it though, John Snow can be revived after death, Game of Souls coming
This rumor would have been more believable if he was working with CDPR
Liam Robertson is well connected so it's possible.
You control Jon Snow. If you die, a sexy red sorceress resurrects you.
I doubt Martin even knows what FS is.
The FFXV development time would be nothing compared to this.
PS VR game "Oberyn vs the Mountain". You play as Oberyn.
Yeah I'm going to have nightmares now.
Eeh, I hope the rumor is not true, one of the things I like from From Software games is the world mystery/athmosphere, you can't have that with known ip like game of throne. It's a waste of From Software talent.
Spoiler! Your character dies and you can’t complete the game.
Only started to watch Game of Thrones on Season 5 and 6 cause of the dragons.
@Jaz007 I'd say it's the other way around. A (good) Game of Thrones game would require CDPR levels of writing. Whilst From Software's games are all great on their own, they aren't particularly known for their strong narrative. At least not the kind of narrative that would be fit for a GOT game. That's why I doubt it.
@wiiware the rumour doesn't suggests that they are working on a got game but rather a new ip, that being said the rumour is still not likely to be true.
This is old news that was leaked last year. It was already leaked that a Song of Ice and Fire game was planned, the only information we didn't have was who would be the developer.
How is it possible that I, a person who only glanced over one old leak about this a year ago, managed to figure this out while so-called "game journalist" couldn't put two and two together, how am I better at being a game journalist than actual game journalist?!
people were talking about retailers even listing it up as a Bethesda game last September
Now we know it is From Software developing it now, not Bethesda.
You guys need to get better at figuring this crap out asap.
i dont really giv 2 shiz for a new game.. all i want is Bloodborne II
GRR Martin is way too busy to be directly involved in something like this surely?! He's turned down countless offers to finish his book. So not sure if this would be true.
With each of these 2 parties penchant for killing off main characters casually and unexpectedly, a collaboration makes sense 😉
It would honestly make more sense if it was simply a Game of Thrones open world game with Sekiro Mechanics or something
Big name Fantasy writers have written the stories for games before so it's not that crazy. I hope it's not true, though, because he really needs to finish ASoIaF and stop doing side projects.
Judging by his book, A Dance With Dragons, the game will plod on for 1000 hours with not much happening.
I would love for a proper Game of Thrones game, it's unfortunate we've had garbage Lord of the Rings games for so long. I just want a proper RPG, any sub genre is fine.
I doubt Martin even knows what FS is
Should be :
I doubt Martin even knows 'who' FS 'are'.
You're welcome, but when using a name, better to include the full name. In this particular case, Martin can be a first name so may cause confusion. It's also worth noting 'FS' may refer to Fukuoka Studio, which may in turn cause added uncertainty. Keep practicing!
I would like to see the results of such an experiment so I'm going to say, maybe it's true. Maybe.
@malbhet Wow. You're amazing. I want to be just like you when I grow up... oh... hold on... I retract that. Despite your general rude tone. Going on comments you've made previously, looking at your down votes compared to your up votes you're taking utter rubbish. And it's the votes that count... apparently.
I wonder if it'll have a covenant called Way of the White Walker?
Give me a From game that's the polar opposite of Souls lol. Playing as The Mountain😁
Armored Core 6: The Three Eyed Raven
Oh God... I clicked on Liam's Twitter...
The rumor better be true!
@rjejr don't worry you have the gift of hindsight. Just don't get cocky and finish the big lump off before he can smash your head "LIKE THIS!" - splat-
@Infinite_J_777 I've decided a better GoT game would be PSVR dragon riding. Fighting the white walkers. Drakarys!!
