Earlier this week, Telltale wrapped up its critically-acclaimed first season of Game of Thrones, with The Ice Dragon bringing the curtain down on six episodes of bloodthirsty warfare and political intrigue remarkably well.
Buoyed by a wave of goodwill, the studio has now formally confirmed that the episodic series will return for season 2, further exploring the intricate and indeed interwoven stories of the Forrester clan. Talking to The Hollywood Reporter, Telltale CEO and Co-Founder Kevin Bruner touched base with the road so far, along with teasing some of the exciting events that await in the series’ sophomore stint.
When we initially announced the series in 2013, we let everyone know this would be a multi-title, multi-year partnership with HBO. After this week’s finale, I’m pleased to officially confirm that there will be a second season of Telltale’s Game of Thrones series, and that it’s currently in development.
The questions left on the table at the conclusion of season one, who survived and who didn’t, as well as all the other choices you made play a huge role in the second season. We’ve been planning the second season all along, but I really shouldn’t be revealing more than that.
There you have it, the Forrester clan will make a return with Game of Thrones season 2, though Telltale remained mum on a specific release window. This is, after all, a studio that hews closely to the TV formula when it comes creating content, so don’t expect to return to Telltale’s rendition of Westeros until late 2016 at the very earliest.
