As the “Game of Thrones” TV series diverges farther from George R.R. Martin’s “A Song of Ice and Fire” book series, will the new Telltale Games “Game of Thrones” title travel concurrently with some of the later stories from the books? That’s certainly what a new tease Telltale posted to Twitter seems to be implying.

The tweet uses an Asha Greyjoy (Yara in the “Game of Thrones” TV series) quote from book 5, “A Dance With Dragons,” and includes the hashtag #IronFromIce. Those certainly imply that the new Telltale title could take place during the time period where Asha’s story intersects with Stannis Baratheon’s in the North.
“I think the show provides a timeline, but the world is huge,” Connors told the site. “There’s so much going on and it’s so rich. Every decision that King Joffrey makes impacts so many people. … 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.”
