Despite Game of Thrones coming to an end on Sunday night, George R.R. Martin is continuing to plow a head with original content! According to an article by PC Games, George R.R. Martin revealed he’s being consulted to act as a writer on an upcoming game by FromSoftware. FromSoftware is a video game developer’s studio based out of Japan, creating such titles as Dark Souls, Bloodborne, and Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice. Their games often deal with themes of dark fantasy, creating vibrant worlds that nonetheless feel isolated and full of horror. They also emphasize difficulty, being infamous for creating very hard bosses and enemies that will often have players tearing their hair out. This seems like a match made in heaven with George R.R. Martin.

George R.R. Martin discussed this and more in a blog post where he revealed his upcoming projects. He has a producer credit on eight upcoming TV shows, short film adaptations, and involvement on feature length movies. In the post, he stated that he was consulting on a video game studio from Japan. Through some research, PC Gamer believes George R.R. Martin will be working with FromSoftware on their next video game project. Martin’s work on the title will include acting as head writer and helping to flesh out the world the player experiences during the game. The title will be an open world title, allowing the player to explore multiple kingdoms at their own pace, while fighting bosses and absorbing their power to grow stronger. Hidetaka Miyazaki, the game’s director, will be working closely with Martin to create the game’s world. The game will be announced at E3 this June, so we look forward to its official unveiling there!
With Martin’s eye for detail, skill with world building, and FromSoftware’s experience as a game studio behind him, we can’t wait to see what George’s imagination creates! Are you excited to see what sort of game George R.R. Martin can create? Let us known in the comments!
