Report: FromSoftware Collaboration with George R.R. Martin to be Revealed at E3 2019

An open world game with horse riding? Count us in.

George R.R. Martin has been busy of late, but maybe not busy writing Game of Thrones. The novelist revealed he's been consulting on a video game in Japan, and a new report claims this game is a collaboration with FromSoftware, famed creators of Dark Souls.

"I've consulted on a video game out of Japan," Martin wrote earlier this week on his blog. Back in March 2019, YouTube channel Spawn Wave released a video which claimed Martin was in the process of collaborating with FromSoftware on a new title.

Now in a new report from Gematsu, this project between Martin and FromSoftware is a new open-world game. It's known internally as "GR," and will be published by Bandai Namco. In addition, the report from Gematsu claims that the new game will be revealed next month at Microsoft's E3 2019 presentation in June. Remember that FromSoftware's most recent game, Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, had its debut gameplay reveal back at Microsoft's E3 presentation in June 2018, so this wouldn't be unprecedented.

Keep in mind that Gematsu has only been able to verify this information with a single source. The report states that although "we have not been able to verify this information through additional sources, we have decided to share what we have heard in light of R.R. Martin’s blog post."

Martin has just wrapped up work on the Game of Thrones TV series, and is now busy with the final two Game of Thrones novels. FromSoftware's most recent release is Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, an excellent evolution of the Dark Souls/Bloodborne formula, and previously released Deracine, a PS VR game, near the end of 2018.
