Game of Thrones from Telltale will be set during the same period as the novels and will run concurrent with the HBO series.
Speaking with Digital Trends, Telltale CEO Dan Connors confirmed the game based on the series was not a prequel like The Wolf Among Us.
“It’s not a prequel,” he said. “I think the show provides a timeline, but the world is huge. There’s so much going on and it’s so rich. Every decision that King Joffrey makes impacts so many people. Any microcosm in that world [looking at how] people are affected by the decisions that are made plays out across the whole thing.
“The show does a great job of interpreting George R.R. Martin’s work, and his work provides a huge dictionary of knowledge about what the franchise is. It’s really a dream to sit down and say, ‘What’s our space in this world? Where are we in this world?’ And the world offers you so much to explore.”
Game of Thrones was announced by Telltale at the VGSa last year.
