Xbox Teases Some Kind of Game of Thrones News Reveal

Xbox Teases Some Kind of Game of Thrones News Reveal

Winter is coming to Xbox.

Xbox appears to be teasing something Game of Thrones related on its Twitter account. With E3 just a month away, it's hard to not believe this cryptic Game of Thrones tweet isn't related to some impending announcement.

Yesterday, the official Xbox Twitter account tweeted a GIF of what looks to be armor from House Targaryen in fire. While the full image is cropped, you can see the unmistakable sigil of the dragon just peaking out from the top.

Xbox tweeted the image along with the message, "And now your wait begins. Stay tuned." While the tweet was sent out an hour before the new episode of Game of Thrones premiered on HBO that Sunday, this tweet doesn't seem to be a reference to the TV show.

So what could it be? There's currently a rumor that George R. R. Martin, author of the A Song of Ice and Fire novels from which the HBO series is based on, is working with Dark Souls developer FromSoftware on a project. But those remain rumors, and it'd be strange to tease a FromSoftware collaboration with an image from Game of Thrones just because of Martin's involvement.

A Game of Thrones project is more likely, based on this specific teaser. And while there have been games based on Game of Thrones in the past, none of have had as overwhelming critical acclaim as the novels and TV series.

Or it could be another Xbox One X limited edition console as some commenters are theorizing. Xbox is known to collaborate with movies, TV shows, and brands on limited-edition consoles. So, it could just be one of those in celebration for Game of Thrones' final season. Either way, I'm sure we'll find out soon what this teaser is for.
