George R.R. Martin Hints at From Software Collaboration Rumor

Game of Thrones creator George R.R. Martin rumored to be in collaboration with From Software for a Souls-like game.

You can easily tell that after launching Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, developer From Software is already up to their next project. Reports say that two unannounced projects are currently at works other than Dark Souls: Remastered and Metal Wolf Chaos XD.

Also, now that HBO's fantasy drama TV show Game of Thrones series finale is aired, what would author George R. R. Martin be doing next? Could he get involved in collaboration with the popular Japanese studio for a brand-new video game?

REVEALED: Quadriplegic Gamer Proves Sekiro Needs No Easy Mode

According to a recent Blog post, aside from writing the final two books of Game of Thrones and busy being a producer to five other TV shows, Martin recently has consulted on a video game out of Japan, possibly teasing an early rumor.

Although he is well versed in great world-building elements like dark storytelling and creating fictional kingdoms with dragons in it, it is highly unlikely for next From Software game to be another sequel to Souls franchise.

REVEALED: Player Beats Sekiro All Bosses, No-Hit

In an interview from 2016, Dark Souls series director and From Software president, Hidetaka Miyazaki confirmed that there are no plans for a sequel and even if there was one, it would take at least 5 years for them to start developing it.

Reports also say that, this upcoming IP has been in development for nearly three years now and is being referred as "GR". It is likely to be an open-world game that has features like horse riding and would be published by Bandai Namco.

REVEALED: Sekiro is Biggest Steam Game of Q1 2019

Could it be Bloodborne 2 or maybe a sequel to Sekiro? The latter has enough potential to carry out its legacy by itself. Or maybe studio stuffs are calling it "GR" by taking first two initials from Martin's name because of his involvement?

Given how Sekiro got a full title reveal at E3 2018 before releasing earlier this year, we probably can expect a reveal for this upcoming project at E3 2019 press conference on June 9, which is only a few weeks away from now.

Skull & Bones Delayed to 2020

Once again, Ubisoft has delayed their upcoming pirate adventure game Skull & Bones to 2020 and skipping its E3 2019 showcase.

Upcoming anticipated open-world action game Skull & Bones from developer/publisher Ubisoft was announced back at E3 2017 with an initial launch window of 2018 for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One only to be delayed to 2019 last year.

However, that date is now being delayed once again and will only come out after their current fiscal year will end in March 2020. The pirate adventure will not show up at E3 2019 next month and will be released on spring next year.

RELATED: Ghost Recon: Breakpoint Announced

Ubisoft made a statement saying that it is very common for newer IPs to take more time in development phase because of creative vision and newer ideas and in May 2018, developers asked for more time to deliver an engaging experience.

According to their recent earnings report, ongoing publishing plans for SNB suggests that it may eventually arrive sometime around April 2020. Since it was pushed back to improve quality, we can only hope that it was for the best reasons.

RELATED: Rainbow Six Siege Reverse Friendly Fire Update

A video featuring producer Karl Luhe addressing this delay was posted lately by Skull & Bones official Twitter account. He talks about where they are now in terms of development and offers some behind-the-scenes look as well.



RELATED: Ghost Recon: Wildlands Operation Oracle Update

A TV show based on the game is also on its way but that wouldn't be affected by this delay in any way. Developer studio that worked on ship combat sequences of Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag are working on it for their past experience.

Although getting a long-anticipated game like Skull & Bones twice after reveal is mildly frustrating but seeing Ubisoft is not rushing out an unfinished product and prioritizing quality only shows their commendable dedication to fan-service.

Apparently, Netflix have some gaming news that they want to talk about at a panel in Electronic Entertainment Expo next month and it has to do with turning fan-favorite movies and TV shows from their streaming service into exciting video games.

Though they did not drop much info about what games they are about to reveal on E3 2019 except for Stranger Things, we believe it involves some narrative-driven experiences like Black Mirror: Bandersnatch and Minecraft: Story Mode.

Jedi: Fallen Order Gameplay Will Be Revealed at EA Play and E3

Respawn will reveal gameplay video of Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order at EA Play and E3 2019 on next month.

After making its most anticipating reveal back at Star Wars Celebration 2019, developer Respawn Entertainment announced upcoming single-player Star Wars action-adventure game Jedi: Fallen Order will be out on November 15, 2019.

Although fan-response towards Fallen Order was quite positive in general, no gameplay footage has been shown in the reveal trailer and CEO Vince Zampella recently announced to showcase more of the game at EA Play and E3 2019.

Despite publisher Electronic Arts telling everyone that they would not feature any loot boxes or micro-transactions and entire game will be focused on a single player campaign, people simply can't take their word at face value given their past records.

Since publisher EA has horribly failed to meet expectation with Star Wars Battlefront II and then cancelled development for Star Wars game titled "Project Ragtag" in past, all are anticipating for Jedi: Fallen Order with high hopes.

By next month, eager fans and players would all have their much expected exclusive first-look at some actual gameplay to get hyped for and Respawn has confirmed showing up at two events then in a post on Twitter.

EA Play event usually kicks-off with video presentation and just before E3 each year but EA has decided to do things a bit differently in 2019 and getting rid of their presentation part to replace it with live-stream showcase from June 7-9.

Set right after the tragic events of Order 66 that purged almost every Jedi member throughout the galaxy except lone Padawan Cal Kestis, Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order will be launched in late 2019 for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

Cyberpunk 2077 is Different Now from E3 2018 Gameplay

Quest director Mateusz Tomaszkiewicz of Cyberpunk 2077 game revealed it to be different from E3 2018 presentation.

Last time we had a proper look into upcoming role-playing game Cyberpunk 2077 was back in E3 2018, when developer/publisher CD Projekt Red offered an extensive gameplay reveal for everyone and everyone was blown away.

However, quest director Mateusz Tomaszkiewicz revealed in a recent interview with Area Jugones that you will realize that the game has changed into something different than E3 demo from last year when you see it in action next time.

RELATED: Cyberpunk 2077 Gameplay Reveal

Tomaszkiewicz states that when they presented the demo to public, development team still had no clear vision of how things they wanted to add would fit in an open-world and thus, many elements have gone through reinventions.

Players would be allowed to a wide range of weapons in Cyberpunk 2077 and it may also affect styles of combat. Studio members are very keen to implement some new ideas to make the game fun with better fighting mechanics.

RELATED: Cyberpunk 2077 Will Have Full Nudity

Of course a gameplay demo is just a small chunk out of actual game and a narrative-driven plot progressed with player choice has multiple directions to go and objectives to follow, which is a good hint at how vast it would expand when complete.

Tomaszkiewicz never said anything about what development stages they are currently in but we can only assume that E3 2019 may at best get us an official release date for 2020 and any rumors of it coming later this year can easily be dismissed.

RELATED: Cyberpunk 2077 Confirmed for E3 2019

Since reworks were done to redesign and renovate, many of its aspects are now noticeably different and many new things are yet to be shown. We can still rely on CD Projekt Red to deliver a great RPG title despite a drastic shift in development.

Regardless of whatever change they are applying, upcoming sci-fi adventure Cyberpunk 2077 still remains one of the most-anticipated title for players on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, maybe even on next-gen consoles as well.
