Game of Thrones author George RR Martin’s next project will be a video game called Elden Ring, according to a new online leak.

The leak suggests that Martin is working on a game with developers FromSoftware, most famous for creating titles such as Dark Souls and Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice.

The information included the announcement of the new game, as well as what appears to be its logo, and suggested that Martin has co-created the game.

It is expected to be announced at the E3 games conference in LA this week, presumably by Bandai Namco. The title is expected to be released for PlayStation 4, PC and Xbox One.

The leaks did not give a confirmed release date. But the platforms listed in the leak suggests that it will be coming before the PlayStation 5 and the next generation of consoles, which are expected to be released in 2020.

George RR Martin mentioned having worked on a game in a blog post he wrote after the finale of Game of Thrones.

"I’ve consulted on a video game out of Japan," he wrote, in addition to a long list of other projects he said he was working on that would keep him busy after Game of Thrones.
