Telltale’s Game of Thrones adaptation came to a bloody end earlier this week with the release of The Ice Dragon, the sixth, and final, episode of the series. But there is hope for the future as players will get to continue the story of House Forrester sometime soon as the developer recently confirmed they’re currently working on Game of Thrones Season 2.
Telltale’s CEO, Kevin Bruner, recently broke the good news during an interview with The Hollywood Reporter:
The Hollywood Reporter: “The Ice Dragon” ends with bloodshed and heartbreak for House Forrester, and also ends without resolution to many major stories. Is it safe to assume that these cliffhangers will be resolved in a second season?
Telltale’s Kevin Bruner: When we initially announced the series in 2013, we let everyone know this would be a multi-title, multiyear 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.
Game of Thrones fans would be well served by clicking through to the full interview as Bruner has a lot to say about Season One. The executive provides a lot of juicy details about the creative process behind Telltale’s Game of Thrones game, and if you were a fan of the episodic series, it’s well worth a read.
