FromSoftware’s next game is rumored to be an ‘open-world title’ made in collaboration with George R.R. Martin

Although the Game of Thrones TV series has just reached its controversial conclusion, series author George R.R. Martin is still (hopefully) hard at work on the remaining books in the seminal fantasy saga — but that’s not the only iron he’s got in the fire. In a recent blog post, Martin reveals that, among his myriad other projects, he has “consulted on a video game out of Japan.” Though mentioned only in passing as part of a post-Game-of-Thrones reflection of sorts, the nonchalant remark has rekindled rumors that Martin is a collaborator on the next project from Dark Souls/Bloodborne/Sekiro developer FromSoftware.

The speculation initially began last March when YouTube channel Spawn Wave posted a video regarding a rumor that FromSoft’s next title will be “an open-world title on 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.” Now, Gematsu reports that a source “familiar with ongoings at FromSoftware” has confirmed that the project, known internally as “GR,” is indeed a “collaboration between [Souls series creator] Hidetaka Miyazaki and George R.R. Martin.”

Beyond that, specific details remain scarce, with the source saying only that the game is “an open-world title (with horse riding)” that has been in development for “the past three years.” Although Gematsu has not been able to independently confirm the information, the source also claims that the game will be officially announced at Microsoft’s E3 2019 press conference next month, so we’ll find out if these rumors are credible soon enough. If they are, we hope that the title brings some exciting new multiplayer features like the Souls series before it.

Theres been rumours of a Fromsoft game called ‘Project RUNE’ which is a viking equivalent of Sekiro for a while now under co direction of Miyazaki and the director of Scholar of the First Sin. Wouldn’t be surprised if this is that project.

Hopefully this game won’t be as bad as the last season of GoT and Nightflyers (TV series based on Martin’s book). Although it would be very difficult to create anything worse than the last season of GoT…

Huh, not sure how to feel about this.
If true it could be good, as both have a raging hard on for dark medieval low magic fantasy. I just hope it’s not GoT related. Kind of burnt out on the series.

Wait… it has horse riding? A-ha! Now we know where that mystical white horse from S8E5 buggered off to, it went off to receive it’s own spin-off story!

Ladies and gentlemen, we have cracked the code.
