Rumor: George R. R. Martin Developing Title With FromSoftware; To Debut at E3 2019

The Game of Thrones show may be over, but there are still plenty of new projects coming from its eccentric creator.  Among those projects is a new game, and sources say it’s with FromSoftware.  More within…

The day after the series finale of HBO‘s hit show Game of Thrones aired, the series creator, George R. R. Martin took to his “Not a Blog” to inform his faithful fans of the many projects he still has in the pipeline.  While he listed a great many things (making it a near impossibility that “The Winds of Winter” and “A Dream of Spring” will ever be finished), the most intriguing one was his admission of a video game he’s working on with a studio in Japan.

“I’ve consulted on a video game out of Japan.”

Sources close to the project told Gematsu that the unnamed studio is FromSoftware and the game is called GR.  Though, that’s simply an acronym until it is announced.  Rumor is, it stands for Great Rune and will be a game about Vikings, from Dark Souls creator Hidetaka Miyazaki.  While details are scarce, it’s said that GR will be an open-world game that will feature Horce Racing.

Surprisingly, Gematsu also claims that the title has been in development for 3 years, is being published by Bandai Namco, and is set to make its debut during this year’s Xbox E3 Briefing.

With GR potentially being in the lineup, the Xbox E3 Briefing just got a lot more interesting.

Stay tuned to all of our upcoming coverage of E3 2019 and the mysterious GR title.
