A Gematsu report first claimed the unannounced game is a collaboration with Tokyo-based Dark Souls and Sekrio developer From Software, and VGC sources confirm this is indeed the case.

The unannounced title is said to be an open-world game featuring horse riding, with Bandai Namco Entertainment set to publish.

The collaboration sees George R. R. Martin working with another renowned fantasy creator, Hidetaka Miyazaki, whose Dark Souls series has earned critical acclaim and sold more than 10 million copies.

Miyazaki’s most recent title Sekrio: Shadows Die Twice was an instant hit, with sales surpassing two million in just 10 days, according to publisher Activision.

Meanwhile Game of Thrones, the TV adaptation of Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire series of books, aired its final episode on Sunday, which brought in a series record of 19.3 million viewers.

It has been suggested that the George R. R. Martin collaboration will be unveiled at E3 in June, however we were unable to verify this information at the time of publishing.

VGC is awaiting comment from Bandai Namco.
