George R.R. Martin May Be Working With From Software On A Japanese Video Game

It's linked with From Software so we can expect some high level of death

The Game of Thrones TV series may be over, but there's still the books to look out for which seems to be taking forever. Well it looks like George R.R. Martin, the writer for A Song of Fire and Ice, has been keeping busy by not only being a producer to a number of shows abd short films for TV, he's also consulting on a video game developed in Japan.

The writer posted about his consultation on his blog in a throwaway line but speculation has been going on since March. YouTube channel Spawn Wave published a video discussing a rumour regarding the next project from Dark Souls and Bloodborne developer From Software, which stated it is an open-world title of which George R.R. Martin is one of the lead writers, with various kingdoms to visit and abilities to obtain from killing the leaders of those kingdoms.

A person familiar with ongoings at From Software has told Gematsu that the project—said to be known internally as “GR” (the source to Gematsu has been asked to only share the acronym) and in development for the past three years—is an open-world title (with horse riding) and collaboration between Hidetaka Miyazaki and George R.R. Martin published by Bandai Namco, which will be officially announced at Microsoft’s E3 2019 press conference.

While it's impossible at this point of time to verify this information through additional sources, it's still worth noting based on Martin's blog post. It would likely be a fun twist if the game isn't anything like Sekiro or Dark Souls, but is actually a waifu game. Yet looking at Martin's style, we can expect a lot of death to be involved regardless.
