Telltale’s Game of Thrones Adds Destiny Writer

August 18, 2014Written by Jason Dunning


Presumably still scheduled to begin in 2014, Telltale’s Game of Thrones game has added Destiny and Assassin’s Creed 2 Writer Joshua Rubin to its team.

Speaking with Gamasutra after the news came to light, Rubin said he was happy with the how Destiny turned out, but “in the end, Bungie makes games about shooting aliens in the head. And while there’s a true art to ‘writing between the bullets’ — as [former Destiny Creative Lead] Mr. Staten once said — I couldn’t turn down an offer from Telltale, to create games that are entirely about story.”

Rubin wrote a few messages on his Twitter account about the new job:

When we hear more about Telltale Games’ Game of Thrones game, we’ll let you know.
