Telltale Games Confirms Game of Thrones: Season Two; Player Choices Will “Play a Huge Role”
Earlier this week, players of Telltale Games’ episodic adaptation Game of Thrones were able to experience the brutal (and bloody) conclusion to the series in its sixth episode “The Ice Dragon,” though the story of House Forrester will seem to continue with the studio officially revealing its return for a second season.
In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Telltale Games’ CEO/co-founder Kevin Bruner confirmed that Game of Thrones will return for a second season, confirming that the new season of the series is currently in development, with Bruner detailing:
“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.”
While Bruner was light in giving away too many details or spoilers for the upcoming season season, he did provide a few teases at what to expect from the next installment of Game of Thrones, and heavily implying at how player choices and actions from the first season will play a key part in the next season:
“Things rarely go well in the Game of Thrones universe, and there is always a price to be paid for playing. Indeed the Forresters did have a very rough time in season one, but there is a larger story to be played out. What may seem like small victories after the downfall of Ironrath are important ones. The choices players make in season one set the stage for what’s to come.”
“Just like the show, we knew we had to leave some questions unanswered, while firmly resolving others. We love that different players will end up with different Forresters depending on how they play, and that those decisions will affect how the unanswered questions get resolved. I won’t spoil the details of those for anyone, but I’ll say this: “The North Grove must never be lost.”
Bruner also detailed that with the second season of Game of Thrones, “we’ll continue to have fun with multiple perspectives in season two, but I can’t divulge exactly how right now,” indicating that surely the next season will pick up the loose threads from the conclusion of its first season, while likely introducing new characters and perspectives in the Forrester’s tale.
Game of Thrones is available now for PS4, Xbox One, PS3, Xbox 360, PC, Mac, iOS, and Android.
