Amazing news! Days before the E3 2019 some juicy information had been leaked all around the internet: a new videogame developed by From Software, the creators of the famous Dark Souls series, Bloodborne and Sekiro videogames; in which George R.R Martin had been consulted. The first reaction was obvious: it had to be a Game of Thrones Rpg; a roleplaying videogame set in Westeros? that would be epic! However, as it was revealed during the E3, Elden Ring won’t be a Got’s RPG.
At first it was just a rumor. It all began with an article George R.R Martin published on May 20, 2019, in which he talked about his future projects. And there was this line, a single line:
“I’ve consulted on a video game out of Japan.”
He was not revealing much, but fans grew suspicious. George R.R Martin traveling to Japan to consult a videogame? Rumors began, but it was that, mere rumors.
The E3 leak
It all happened because of a security flaw on Bandai Namco’s website, this leak revealed three new videogames a Ni no Kuni remaster, a new Tales game, and Elden Rin,g the new videogame developed by From Software for which George R.R Martin was consulted. While it was rummored it would be a Game of Thrones RPG it turns out it is not so.

As you can see it is not related to Game of Thrones at all, as From Software defines it, it will be an action RPG set in a dark fantasy world.
The RPG: Elden ring
There is still not a lot of information regarding this videogame, only that It will be a fantasy action-RPG. Also, the logo of the videogame was also leaked:
