Telltale’s Game of Thrones Season Two is “On Hold”

Game of Thrones

Despite earlier reports that Telltale Games is preparing a second season of its episodic Game of Thrones adaptation, the project is currently “on hold.”

Job Stauffer, head of creative communications at the studio, recently broke the news during an interview with Eurogamer. Although the development team still wants to return to that world, the current workload of the studio (which consists of new seasons of Minecraft: Story Mode, The Walking Dead, Batman, and The Wolf Among Us, as well as a proprietary new IP) is preventing the project from happening. Despite the obstacles, Stauffer emphasised that the lack of an official announcement “does not mean it’s never coming .”

Later in the interview, Stauffer backtracked on his statement, claiming that saying the game is “on hold” is “alarmist and crazy,” but that a return to the IP is “still to be determined.”

Furthermore, the developers are waiting to see “what happens next in the show before [they] talk about the hows and whens of [their] return to Westeros,” seeming to make a second season of Telltale’s Game of Thrones unlikely to release before the eighth and final season of the HBO show.

The first season followed members of House Forrester, a family unseen in the television series, and ran alongside the events of the third and fourth seasons of the show, with a number of key actors, including Emilia Clarke, Kit Harrington, Lena Heady, and Peter Dinklage, reprising their roles.

During the interview, Stauffer also shot down the likelihood of a new Tales from the Borderlands. Although insisting that the first season was profitable, contrary to earlier reports, he fails to address the other recent concerns about the internal difficulties of bringing the game to release.

Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot Will Show Unexplored Stories of Secondary Characters

Published

 on

The luminary creator of the Dragon Ball manga, Akira Toriyama, shared new information about the upcoming action RPG, Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot.

Via the Bandai Namco Twitter account, Toriyama revealed that Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot will depict the backstories of several secondary protagonists. This means that the game will diverge from the story of the manga and give greater insight into Dragon Ball‘s many supporting characters. While a plethora of games depict the events of the Dragon Ball franchise, only a few of them meaningfully expand upon the story’s events, characters, and world.

Toriyama describes Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot as a “fresh new take on the franchise.” Even though Toriyama rarely contributes to Dragon Ball games, he did create much of the lore in the now-defunct MMO Dragon Ball Online, which heavily influenced the story of the Dragon Ball Xenoverse games. While not much information is available about Kakarot and Toriyama’s involvement at this time, the title does have an early 2020 release date and a fishing mechanic.
