Could Bethesda be making a Game of Thrones RPG?
The latest season of HBO’s Game of Thrones series may be over, but fans of G.R.R.M.’s epic fantasy series may not have to wait until next year to get their next Game of Thrones fix since a recent rumor suggests that Elder Scrolls developer Bethesda may be working on its own Game of Thrones title.
The rumors stemmed from this NeoGAF thread in which a user spotted a Target website listing for a game labeled “Bethesda: Game of Thrones.” The listing has since been taken down, but the rumors do coincide nicely with the fact that Bethesda is currently working on two unannounced projects, one of which may indeed be a new RPG title set within the Game of Thrones universe.
Considering how expansive and immersive Bethesda’s Elder Scrolls franchise already is, it’s not that far-fetched to imagine the studio taking a stab at its own original Game of Thrones title. Fans of the series would likely appreciate the effort as well since, to date, there hasn’t really been a Game of Thrones video game that managed to resonate strongly amongst gamers (though Telltale’s own series certainly came close).
