Telltale's A Game of Thrones to span multiple years and games

Telltale recently confirmed it would be adapting the HBO show A Game of Thrones into an adventure game, with little more than a title to tease it. The official announcement shares a little more detail, including just how ambitious the episodic series will be.

Calling it a "multi-year, multi-title partnership" between Telltale and HBO's licensing department, the series will start in 2014. Similar to other Telltale games, it's planned for PC, Mac, consoles, and mobile devices. It's worth noting, again, that the game will be based on the TV series, rather than the original novels.

"Since the very beginning, Telltale's goal has been to work alongside the most talented and respected forces in entertainment, bringing their worlds to the interactive space as no other game studio can," said Telltale CEO Dan Connors, in the formal announcement. "Working with HBO to develop a new game series based on Game of Thrones is a natural fit for our studio. This partnership will create an experience that will captivate the huge, global Game of Thrones audience. It will put them in control of the epic stories of warfare, intrigue, violence and revenge that we know and love."
