A Moment of Silence for Dreams Lost – Target Responds to Bethesda’s Game of Thrones Project Leak
A mysterious website listing on Target was revealed earlier this week detailing an upcoming mystery project from Bethesda concerning the recently wrapped up hit show Game of Thrones. With the season finale of the popular HBO adaptation aired and gone, fans of the franchise were quickly becoming excited of a possible new game coming from the RPG giants over at Bethesda. Though we can still dream, Target quickly put those inquiries to rest with a resounding “no” that could be heard all around Westeros.
The major retailer reached out with their own statement to ComicBook.com stating that the “leak” is false and that the mystery project isn’t “a real product.” Somewhere out there, you can hear a Stark crying. Or me. That sound might be me. It would have been exciting to see the team behind Skyrim take on this task. Up until TellTale spun their own take on the franchise, the prior attempts at translating the books into the realm of video games has yet to be prove entirely successful.
Though it doesn’t look like Bethesda will be tackling the seven kingdoms any time soon, at least we do have at least 5 new projects to look forward to as well as the confirmed dates for Skyrim VR, Fallout 4 VR, and DOOM VFR. And for those needing that Game of Thrones itch scratched, there is still TellTale’s Game of Thrones season 2 to look forward to!

Martin, who would be your dream developer team? Sound off with your thoughts in the comment section below, and don’t forget to check out DFTG on Twitter for gaming and entertainment news live 24/7!
