It's been rumored for a while and with the GOT Season 7 finale approaching, we may actually get a reveal soon.

Would you be interested in this game?

Can't be much worse than the Telltale game.

I always heard the original RPG adaption was actually fairly solid if you can forgive some Eurojank.

Unless they leave the writing to the GoT TV crew (or GRRM himself) or something and they just work on the game part.

I can see it. Although I think CDPR is the better studio for this type of game, given the Wither 3's story presentation.

This is going to be awful. The gameplay might be serviceable but Bethesda doesn't have the writing staff to do this justice. Then again, judging by Season 7, neither does HBO.

If we get the same love and care that was put into Skyrim, it's not going to be good. Skyrim was a technically incompetent mess surrounded by a bunch of missed opportunities. I mean, it looks good next to Fallout 4 but that's not saying much when compared to previous games in the series. Let's hope they step up their game now that they'll be directly compared to CDPR's output.

I can't wait to see King's Landing. Calling it now, 12 buildings and the Red Keep

Considering that Focus Home Interactive and Cyanide (of all people) managed to get the licence (and did two crappy games with it), I can't imagine the licence cost that much for Bethesda. That said, I would suspect that this won't be developed by Bethesda Games Studios and so judging by recent trends it'll probably be great, but be a commercial bomb.

If it does turn out to be Bethesda Games Studios' next project, then it'll be garbage but it will inevitably sell millions of copies.

I thought PS3 was the only version that was truly terrible? I only played on PC, so it was fine for me.

Didn't Bethesda Game Studios say they are working on two new games other than the next Elder Scrolls and those two games are bigger than anything they've done before? GoT would fit that criteria if they want to really run with the license.

Ubisoft

CD project red would take years, its taking them years just to get a card game out.

Bethesda to me has been knocking it out of the park the last few years with Doom, Dishonoured, Evil Within, elder scrolls online, Wofenstein and yes Fallout 4 was fine IMO. I think they are a fine choice for it.

Yeah, its called Crusader Kings 2. Or more specifically, just get the Game of Thrones mod for it and there is your ideal Game of Thrones game.


I just don't quite get how a typical Bethesda open world game fits Game of Thrones much at all.

Depending on the era, location, source (show vs book) we could easily see magic in the form of children of the forest, white walkers, sorcerers, etc.

The scope of Westeros is too big for a game like Skyrim.

It would have to be a linear narrative IMO, like a medieval Naughty Dog game.

That or an IP thats abit more distinct from the two they usually work on (if this is being made in the same open world RPG design TES and Fallout are).

I'd be all over them doing a property like Star Wars in that style somehow.
