HBO has assigned sci-fi author and George R.R. Martin’s personal assistant Ty Corey Franck as story consultant for Telltale Games’ upcoming Game of Thrones title, according to The New York Times.
Telltale apparently had to work hard to convince HBO that it was the right developer for the job, following the failure of previous GOT titles, according to the report. “We were struck by the sophisticated level of work and high-quality approach to storytelling in all of their games,” HBO global licensing VP Josh Goodstadt said.
“We quickly recognized that this same level of quality and dedication could be a great complement to the richness of Game of Thrones.”
Telltale Games’ Game of Thrones adaptation is still without an official release date.
