Telltale Games’ recently announced Game of Thrones series is part of a “multi-year, multi-title partnership” with HBO, the developer has confirmed.
During Spike’s VGX awards, the developer announced that it was working on an adaptation of the popular television series. The series will “premiere digitally in 2014,” according to the Telltale, and will follow the same episodic format that their other titles have. “Home consoles, PC/Mac, and mobile devices” are listed as platforms for the series, so presumably Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, PC, Mac, and iOS.
“Since the very beginning, Telltale’s goal has been to work alongside the most talented and respected forces in entertainment, bringing their worlds to the interactive space as no other game studio can,” said Telltale co-founder Dan Connors.
“Working with HBO to develop a new game series based on Game of Thrones is a natural fit for our studio. This partnership will create an experience that will captivate the huge, global Game of Thrones audience. It will put them in control of the epic stories of warfare, intrigue, violence and revenge that we know and love.”
“We’re delighted to be working with Telltale Games, a proven leader in the creation of engaging interactive content,” added Josh Goodstadt, HBO’s director of global licensing. “Our fans are always looking for new, exciting ways to engage with the Game of Thrones brand and this game series will put them right in the middle of the action by letting them decide where the story will lead. This brings a whole new dimension to the world of Westeros.”
Telltale Games also announced at the VGX awards that it was working on another new title, set in the Borderlands universe, titled Tales from the Borderlands.
