From Software’s collaboration with the famous Game of Thrones creator George R.R. Martin on Elden Ring blew people’s minds away, but the studio’s executives were just as shocked when he replied back accepting their proposal.
Game Director Hidetaka Miyazaki explained his and Executive Business Director Eiichi Nakajima surprise when George and his entourage accepted to sit down with From Software in an interview with Xbox Wire.
I suppose the start of this collaboration came from the fact that I myself am I huge fan of Mr. Martin’s work. I loved A Song of Ice and Fire as well as the Tuf Voyaging series, however if I had to pick a favorite I would probably say Fevre Dream. I personally see Fevre Dream as a masterpiece among vampire fantasy and had even previously recommended it to all new employees.
Me being such a known fan of Mr. Martin caused our executive business director to reach out to him with the expectation that we would get turned down. However, we were then given the rare opportunity to talk one-on-one with Mr. Martin which was an incredibly fun and stimulating experience. It was then that I strongly felt that I wanted to work with Mr. Martin.
Elden Ring is expected to release on PS4, Xbox One, and PC platforms. However, a release date is yet to get confirmed.
