George RR Martin and From Software would work together on a new game

With the E3 approaching, rumors are rife about the games still unknown to the masses, and the latest is important because it would be linked to the author of Games of Thrones. There's a lot of talking lately about George RR Martin with the great finale of Game of Thrones being broadcasted just two days ago. Fans of the series have not failed to share their opinion, positive or negative, on social networks, and also questions about the content of the books coming soon. But it seems that the author has more projects in progress than we think. On his blog, he published a long article yesterday, talking about these years of collaboration with HBO, but also on his future projects. And one sentence in particular literally inflamed the canvas. George RR Martin claims to have "played the role of consultant for a video game in Japan." To understand the relation with From Software, we must go back to last March. The studio had announced early this year work on two new projects, and had even said that these two upcoming games would be new licenses, and excluded a remaster. Last March, a rumor began to circulate, following a video of Spawn Wave and Liam Robertson.

Today, Gematsu seems to confirm this information. The media specializing in Japanese gaming news has published an article explaining that a source close to From Software said that the studio is currently working on an open world title and that it would be a collaboration between George RR Martin and Hidetaka Miyazaki, the creator of Dark Souls, Bloodborne, and more recently Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice. But that's not all, the project would be called GR code and would be in development for three years now, and it would be published by Bandai Namco. The game would be an open world title in which players would travel between several kingdoms, each with a boss they could kill to steal his power. Some sources even claim that GR would mean Great Rune, that the game would take place in the Nordic countries, and that it would be based on their mythology. Still, according to the Gematsu source, the game would be presented at the Microsoft conference at E3 2019.



All this is, of course, to be taken with a pinch of salt, since Bandai Namco did not wish to speak on the subject. If all this is true, with the recent Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice success, it could be one of the biggest announcements of this E3. The event takes place in three weeks so we will find out about the truth of all this rather soon.
