Game of Thrones has finally wrapped up its 8th and final season, and fans seem to want more. However, it’s also making fans wait for the next books from the source novel series, A Song of Ice and Fire. And as fans are waiting for author George R.R. Martin to finish “The Winds of Winter,” it seems that he’s also working on something else… a Japanese video game!
In his own official blog, the author talked about the ending of the franchise, and even promised that the books will end differently.
Let me say this much — last night was an ending, but it was also a beginning. Nobody is retiring any time soon. David and Dan are going on to STAR WARS and other projects beyond that. Amazon scooped up Bryan Cogman, and put him to work on developing shows of his own, as well as helping out on their big Tolkien project. Our brilliant cast has scattered to the four winds, but you’ll be seeing a lot of them in the years to come, in all manner of television shows and movies. Our directors are keeping busy as well. I suspect that you have not seen the last of Westeros on your television sets either, but I guess that all depends on how some of these successor shows turn out.
However, what got many gamers and anime fans talking is that he has also admitted that he’s also collaborating on a Japanese video game.
And me? I’m still here, and I’m still busy. As a producer, I’ve got five shows in development at HBO (some having nothing whatsoever to do with the world of Westeros), two at Hulu, one on the History Channel. I’m involved with a number of feature projects, some based upon my own stories and books, some on material created by others. There are these short films I am hoping to make, adaptations of classic stories by one of the most brilliant, quirky, and original writers our genre has ever produced. I’ve consulted on a video game out of Japan. And then there’s Meow Wolf…
I wonder what that game is, and what platform it will have? Probably something akin to Dark Souls given his style…
Whatever that game is, it has fans talking.
