What ruined this dream collabo? Skyrim. Stupid. Terrible. Skyrim.
"We wanted to do our own world. That's where we wanted to put out time into. Before we were even making Skyrim, there was a conversation with George R.R. Martin's people," studio head Todd Howard told EGM. "They thought it would be a good match - and so did we, actually - but then we thought about if that was where we wanted to spend our time. It was tempting, though."
So, update for everybody: We hate Skyrim now. Sorry, kid, those are the breaks.
(Note: This isn't meant as a slight against Focus Home Interactive's RTS A Game of Thrones: Genesis. We're sure it'll be a fine game, or at least better than Skyrim which -- reminder -- we hate now.)
