‘Bethesda Game of Thrones’ Listed on Target’s Website (Update: It Isn’t Real, Says Target)
Update: A Target spokesperson told Forbes, “This is not a real product – we’re sorry for any confusion.”
Original Story: Appearing on Target’s website this weekend (and still live as of writing this) is something called “Bethesda: Game of Thrones,” suggesting that Bethesda is currently working on a new Game of Thrones game.
However, the listing is quite clearly a placeholder and doesn’t contain any sort of description, a box art, a price, a release date, or confirmation that this is even a video game. So, for now, treat this as a rumor.
What we do know is that Bethesda is working on two games bigger than anything they’ve ever done, and we should hear about them before The Elder Scrolls VI. Interviewed back in February, Todd Howard said, “We have two larger projects that are more classically the scale of what we do, but even bigger… I can’t talk a lot about them, but I can say that they’re bigger than anything we’ve ever done. They’re a bit different, but definitely in the wheelhouse that people are used to from us.”
Prior to E3, a leaker said Bethesda was working on a fantasy game of a famous franchise, and they suggested it was Game of Thrones. Though, it’s worth noting that the leaker’s guess regarding a Starfield reveal at E3 never came true.
Back in 2011, Bethesda revealed that they were in talks to do a Game of Thrones video game, but ultimately chose to put their time into Skyrim instead.
