No way, is this seemingly ridiculous rumour of George R.R. Martin working on a From Software title as lead writer going to be true? The man himself penned a blog post about the culmination of the Game of Thrones TV show, and in it he confirms that he has consulted on a Japanese game.
Buried towards the end of the text, he says: "I’ve consulted on a video game out of Japan." So there we have it, literal confirmation! That's not all though, as Gematsu sources indicate that the game is indeed developed by From Software and headed by Hidetaka Miyazaki. Known internally as Great Rune if what GamesRadar reports is true, it has been in development for three years and will feature an open world with horse riding. It's based on Norse mythology, and will be officially announced at Microsoft's E3 2019 press conference, published by Bandai Namco.
It's quite a turn of events, but an exciting one indeed. Are you looking forward to seeing footage of this mysterious title? Hype up the third-party reveal in the comments below.

I guess a consultation role makes lots of sense.
LOL I knew it would be true and you guys would swallow that old article.
He just doesn't want to finish the books!
I hope that this game has magical elements.
"It ain't a game if you can't throw lightning around" - My friend
That makes sense. He has an addiction to killing main characters horribly.
Nice to get more norse games after GOW, this game and next assasins creed.
It will be Dark Souls but with more incest.
Just hope it will have a better finale than GoT....
@Xaessya main protagonist will die permanently right at the tutorial
@arnoldlayne83 I stayed up until 2AM for that drivel. They really stopped caring about the characters, didn’t they?
@nessisonett I am sorry for you and I feel you....
Honestly, They stopped caring about logic.... Last season just doesn't make any sense...
Awesome. Awesome. Awesome. But not in GoT universe??
As a huge fan of fromsoftware and miyazaki games and a big ASOIAF fan i couldn't be happier.
miyazaki's skills in crafting a deep and engaging lore that will have their fandom piecing together every bit of information to paint a clear picture of the story mixed with the incredible world building and characters of GRRM stories could potentially be a legendary game.
Can't wait for more info and hopefuly a reveal soon, so far it sounds incredible.
@arnoldlayne83 You'll spend 40 hours sitting in a castle, listening to characters around you talk about all the epic fantasy battles they're having. Your only way of interacting with the world is 'Press X to stare like a creep' until the end when you're elected president of Lordran or whatever.
@NintendoFan4Lyf Looking forward to getting 80% of the way through the storyline before it stops because he couldn’t be bothered to finish it.
Regards, a bitter book reader.
Man, God of War really brought Norse to the forefront huh?
@AFCC not to be cruel, but i will be amazed if he does at this point. Hes been writing book 6 for what feels like forever, and hes already said book 7 is going to be over 1500 pages. How long will that take! I think these other projects are a way of escaping the pressure of it all, particularly since the tv show started.
Be interesting to see how the two endings differ between show and book if he does finish it
@nessisonett @arnoldlayne83 I stopped watching it when Stannis sacrificed his daughter, Shireen. Utter codswallop.
@ApostateMage I guess Noone still know what the heck was that for....🤔😂
They should call it Stark Souls.
I'll take my consultation fee in cash, thanks.
I saw this news on youtube and the rumour went further than just saying it will be at MS's E3 press conference but that it will also be an Xbox Exclusive.
It doesn't bother me either way as an owner of both consoles and therefore would have access to it whether its multi-platform or exclusive (timed or otherwise) to a single platform.
It would seem odd that FromSoftware would make an Exclusive for Xbox based on Game of Thrones. I would think that it would be much more likely to be multi-platform. Its not that I think FromSoftware wouldn't make an exclusive for Xbox - after all they have for Sony and 'money' is money whether its coming from MS or Sony. Its more that I would be surprised that such a 'big' license would be limited to MS. I know Spider-Man is a big license too but at least there is a link to Sony with Sony Pictures having the rights to Spider-Man on the big screen.
Anyway, a few more weeks and E3 will be upon us so we will see if this turns out to be true and to what extent too...
nice can't wait.word up son
@Rob_230 I feel like he is saying that at least book 6 is mostly done (written) but yeah of course the rest of the process is lenghty too I guess.
