From Software RPG Written By George R.R. Martin Is Called Great Rune
Back in March, a rumor regarding a new RPG developed by From Software started circulating online. While it's no surprise that the developer is working on a new game, the fact that this game is allegedly written by A Song of Ice and Fire author George R.R Martin made the rumor quite noteworthy. And it seems like this game is indeed real and will be announced soon.
Following the airing of the Game of Thrones series final, George R.R. Martin shared on his blog that he has been consulted on a video game out of Japan.
There are these short films I am hoping to make, adaptations of classic stories by one of the most brilliant, quirky, and original writers our genre has ever produced. I’ve consulted on a video game out of Japan. And then there’s Meow Wolf…
A post on 4Chan shared more details on this game, which is apparently going to be called Great Rune and it will have a Norse Mythology theme. The game is considered to be the true successor to the Dark Souls game, but it will bring some drastic changes to the formula. The game will apparently be announced during Microsoft's E3 2019 press conference.
Gematsu also independently confirmed the rumor through another source.
From Software has yet to speak about the matter, so we have to take everything with a grain of salt. The Microsoft's E3 press conference is being held on June 9th so we are a little over two weeks away from a potential reveal, so the wait is definitely going to be bearable.
