The new Telltale games will not be a prequel, but will run alongside the series. Here is what they had to say about it.
Telltale CEO Dan Connors spoke with Digital Trends regarding the project and its adaptation of the story and characters in Westeros:
“It’s not a prequel. 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 is currently set to debut in 2014: stay tuned for more details, in the meantime.
