[Rumor] Miyazaki and George R. R. Martin video game to be announced at E3 2019 [Update: Will be titled Great Rune, set in Norse world/mythology]

Update: According to Gamesradar, the codename GR stands for Great Rune. Also according to them, Great Rune will be set  in the Norse world, exploring Norse mythology and all its dark elements.

Again, stay tuned.


Yesterday, writer George R. R. Martin (Game of Thrones) confirmed on a blog post that he has consulted on a video game developed in Japan.

This information could match several rumors that have been appearing lately on the Internet. Really very, very interesting rumors.

Back in March, we heard that Hidetaka Miyazaki (Dark Souls, Bloodborne) could be working on an open-world game. One of the lead writers for this project, which would feature various kingdoms to visit and abilities to obtain from killing the leaders of those kingdoms, would be George R. R. Martin.

Now, sources close to Gematsu seem to confirm that info and, also, they state that Miyazaki has been working on this project (codenamed GR and published by Bandai Namco) for three years and will be announced at Microsoft’s E3 2019 press conference.

As we always say, take this info with tons of salt.

Stay tuned.
