Telltale Games, developer behind critically acclaimed point-and-click adventure The Walking Dead, officially confirmed it’s working on a game based on Game of Thrones. The company made an announcement at last night’s VGX, revealing that it will collaborate directly with HBO for the episodic content, which is schedule for release sometime next year.
Not much was shown off or shared—just a brief video confirming the news—though the developer did say the game will play in similar style to other Telltale games, and also feature big battles. With Telltale at the helm, fans of the Game of Thrones universe can rest easy knowing the franchise is in some good hands. If it can do for Game of Thrones what it did for The Walking Dead, offering excellent story-driven content, Telltale will have another huge hit.
