That would mean it's a concurrent story that Telltale is working on where presumably we'll control and interact with characters behind-the-scenes so as to give us choices.
"I think the show provides a timeline, but the world is huge. You’re talking about the politics of an entire– it’s like Europe and some other continent. There’s so much going on and it’s so rich. Every decision that King Joffrey makes impacts so many people. Any microcosm in that world people are affected by the decisions that are made plays out across the whole thing."
"The show does a great job of interpreting George R.R. Martin’s work, and his work provides a huge dictionary of knowledge about what the franchise is. It’s really a dream to sit down and say, ‘What’s our space in this world? Where are we in this world?’ And the world offers you so much to explore," Telltale CEO Dan Connors told .
"It’s not a prequel, no. That might be the most information anyone has," he added.
Telltale is also developing an adventure series in the Borderlands universe, as well as continuing to work on The Walking Dead (also concurrent to the TV show) and The Wolf Among Us.
