Telltale teasing potential setting for its Game of Thrones series

Posted on September 2, 2014 AT 08:31am

Telltale Games has offered a small tease for its upcoming Game of Thrones series that may offer a hint at the game’s setting.

The developer recently posted an image to its Twitter account with a quote taken from the latest Game of Thrones book, A Dance With Dragons, highlighting a specific family name.

“…Trackers and hunters sworn to Deepwood with clan names such as Forrester and Woods, Branch and Bole,” the quote reads. “Game of Thrones, a Telltale Games series #IronFromIce.”

The quote suggests that Telltale’s game will be set during the events of the fifth book. House Forrester is sworn to House Glover of Deepwood Motte—which is allied with House Stark—and has only been mentioned in the books, but never heavily featured. This would allow Telltale the chance to shape its own set of characters within the universe if correct.

Game of Thrones is in development for PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, and PC, but is still without a release date.
