George R.R. Martin’s critically acclaimed (and totally awesome) "‘A Song of Ice and Fire" series will be hitting consoles and PCs in the future. This afternoon French developer Cyanide (Blood Bowl, Pro Rugby Manager) announced that they acquired the “interactive rights” to the series and will be delivering more than one videogame based on Martin’s gritty-ass books.
The quotes in the press release (available after the break) are mildly reassuring. Patrick Pligersdorffer, Cyanide’s managing director, offered verbal praise for Martin’s work and indicated that the integrity of “A Song of Ice and Fire” would be left intact.
Nothing is scarier than a licensed game based on a property you love and admire. Get it right Cyanide. No one wants Main Characters Who Die Manager.
