There's been rumours swirling around that Game of Thrones creator George R.R. Martin has been collaborating with From Software on a new game for some weeks now, and it seems he's finally confirmed he's indeed working on something games related.
Writing on his blog after the finale of the Game of Thrones television series this week, Martin specifically stated that 'I’ve consulted on a video game out of Japan.' – though he stops short of confirming if it's indeed a From Software title he's worked on as was claimed some weeks ago by YouTube channel SpawnWave.
However, sites Gematsu and VGC are now backing up this rumour further with their own independent sources, claiming that the game will be published by Bandai Namco and indeed has seen Martin work with Dark Souls creator Hidetaka Miyazaki on a game currently only being referred to as 'GR' which VG24/7 claims stands for 'Great Rune'.
There's been no word from Bandai Namco or From Software confirming these rumours at the time of writing, though Gamatsu also claim that the title will be unveiled during Microsoft's E3 showcase in June. We'll have to wait and see. In the meantime, here's why Josh thinks George R.R. Martin and From Software might be the perfect partnership.
