‘Walking Dead’ game developers plan ‘Game of Thrones’ series

Published Dec 9th, 2013 9:15PM EST

Telltale Games, the maker of the TV show-based “The Walking Dead” video game, has confirmed that it’s working with HBO to launch a “Game of Thrones” series of games starting in 2014, Polygon reports. “We’ll be taking advantage of all the fiction to make something great,” Telltale Games CEO Dan Conners said.” We’re just really getting into it right now and thinking about characters – who has the most at stake, who has the biggest impact on the world.”

Actual gameplay details have not been shared yet with gamers interested in exploring Westeros on their gaming machines. Furthermore, Telltale Games did no reveal launch plans for the first “Game of Thrones” episode, nor did it mention what platforms the game will be available on initially. Instead, the company did release a teaser trailer at VGX 2013 only to confirm that the game is in the making, and will launch next year.

HBO’s show based on George R. R. Martin’s complex saga has been very popular with the crowds, quickly becoming one of the most pirated TV shows of all time. The fourth “Game of Thrones” series will debut on March 14, 2014.
