George RR Martin's assistant consulting on Telltale's Game Of Thrones series

HBO took a fair bit of convincing to greenlight the project

HBO has assigned George RR Martin's assistant Ty Corey to work with Telltale on their Game Of Thrones series.

Corey, who is an sci-fi author in his own right is also an executive producer on the TV show is working as a story consultant on the game.

It also seems that Telltale had to do a fair bit of work to convince HBO that a Game Of Thrones game series was viable after the clear failure of the Game Of Thrones RPG. George RR Martin's assistant consulting on Telltale's Game Of Thrones series

HBO's Josh Goodstadt said, “We were struck by the sophisticated level of work and high-quality approach to storytelling in all of their games. We quickly recognized that this same level of quality and dedication could be a great complement to the richness of Game of Thrones.”

Telltale's Game Of Thrones series might some way off as the studio still has The Wolf Among Us and The Walking Dead: Season Two to finish off this year as well as Tales From The Borderlands which is due out later this year.

Thanks The New York Times.
