George R.R. Martin, escritor de las novelas de fantasía medieval Canción de Hielo y Fuego (A Song of Ice and Fire) serie de libros ha confirmado en su livejournal que las noticias anteriores que hablaban de unos videojuegos de la serie de novelas de Canción Hielo y Fuego son ciertas.  Estos videojuegos serán desarrollados el Cyanide Studios, y digo serán por que no no será un único videojuego lo que veamos, sino dos juegos los que están en desarrollo de la empresa con sede en Francia.

Los videojuegos serán por un lado un RPG (juego de rol) y un título de RTS (estrategia en tiempo real) para PC y las plataformas de consolas de la «próxima generación» (suponemos que se refiere a la 360 y PS3).

Esto es lo que Martín ha dicho:

For years now fans of my epic fantasy series A Song of Ice & Fire have been writing and emailing me to suggest… ask… beg for the books to be made into a videogame. I’m thrilled to be able to announce that, at long last, those requests are being answered. Cyanide Studios, an independent videogame developer based in Nanterre, France, has acquired an exclusive option to develop Ice & Fire as both an RTS (Real Time Strategy) and RPG videogame for next generation consoles and PC.

Cyanide will begin development immediately, with an eye toward rolling out the games for release in the summer of 2011. «We are all huge fans of ‘A Song of Ice and Fire’, so it is a true honour for our teams to be entrusted with creating the first video games inspired by this masterpiece» said Patrick Pligersdorffer, Managing Director of Cyanide. «The twists and turns of the plot will allow us to deliver an experience which can be enjoyed by both long-time fans as well as gamers new to the series. Its rich web of characters, set in a universe where nothing is just black and white, make it an ideal background for both an RTS and an RPG.»

Cyanide first approached me about videogame rights five years ago. No agreement was reached at that time, but Patrick and his colleague Joe Ryan have maintained their interest in the series over the years, impressing me with their doggedness and determination. Since that first contact, Cyanide has opened a studio in Montreal and more than doubled its headcount, and now have the resources to produce both RTS and RPG games that will, we hope, satisfy all my fans and readers, and gamers unfamiliar with the books as well. I am pleased to be in business with the Cyanide, and look forward to working with them on the games.

Cyanide was founded in 2000, and has developed and produced games in numerous genres, including sports management, real time strategy, fantasy, and action RPGs. More information is available through the company website at www.cyanide-studio.com

Sin duda esta es una muy buena noticia para los amantes de esta serie de novelas entre los que por suerte me incluyo. Ahora esperamos que la siguiente buena noticia que nos llegue sobre Canción de Hielo y Fuego es que el autor ha terminado de escribir los siguientes volúmenes de la saga.

Saludos desde lo más profundo de los bytes.
