FromSoftware and George R.R. Martin RPG Rumor

GamesRadar+ points the way to this SpawnWave YouTube video which discusses the recent report that FromSoftware has two unannounced video games in development. Specifically, this speculates that one these is an RPG being written by Game of Thrones/A Song of Ice and Fire author George R.R. Martin. They state up front that this is a rumor, and make it sound like they don't necessarily believe it themselves, but it certainly makes sense that Martin would be looking for something to occupy all his free time. There's a lot of conjecture about gameplay details for an "open-world Souls game" but not much of an explanation of what fuels the belief Martin is involved other than to say it's a rumor, and that this sounds crazy.

GRMM should just hand over everything to Scalzi and let him finish it. At least we wouldn't have a type of dinnerware mentioned fifty million times in one book.

Ugh no thanks. Scalzi has no hand for characterization, wooden and every character has the same "voice". Old Man's War was decent but I haven't liked anything he's written since and hes certainly no one to fill Martin's shoes. I don't begrudge him his success but he writes like a Whedon script fetishist.

Joe Abercrombie doesn't have the same stylistic prose as Martin but he definitely shares his penchant for layered plots involving kingdoms and character deaths. Steven Erikson is way too technical and desperately needs a new editor.

As long as no one suggests Mr Magic System Brandon Sanderson then we're cool though

I think Sanderson has already said somewhere he wouldn't do it if asked. Let's get Patrick Rothfuss on the case!

Oh yeah, Rothfuss is great at finishing series.
