RUMOR: Is Bethesda Working on a GAME OF THRONES Video Game?

After tonight’s season seven finale, there are only six episodes left of Game of Thrones. And while the series has long since captured our collective imaginations and conquered the realm of television, the series has yet to find similar success as a video games. Of the handful of games that have previously adapted the show, only Telltale Games’ episodic Game of Thrones title has come close to capturing its spirit. Now, we may finally get the Game of Thrones game that we’ve always wanted, if the latest rumor turns out to be true.

TechRaptor is reporting that Bethesda is working on a Game of Thrones video game that may be announced soon. The original source for the report spotted the game listed on Target.com. It’s not available for pre-order and there are no other details at this time.

The pairing of Bethesda and Game of Thrones would be a dream come true. Bethesda’s Elder Scrolls series, and especially Skyrim, were some of the best open world fantasy video games that we’ve ever seen. Applying that type of gameplay and story to the world of A Song of Ice and Fire is a very appealing prospect. It would be amazing to explore the locations in Westeros that have only briefly been seen in the map during the opening credits. And the history behind the series is so vast that a video game could conceivably be set in many different eras beyond the events depicted in the TV series.

Bethesda is reportedly developing two major video games that have not been officially announced, and one of those titles could be Game of Thrones. We really want this rumor to be true, and the end of the seventh season does seem like a good time to make an official announcement. Hopefully we’ll learn more soon.
