Telltale Games, which created a video game based on the popular AMC series "The Walking Dead," announced it will create a video game based on HBO's series "Game of Thrones," according to The Verge.com.

Telltale made the announcement official on its Twitter account Saturday.

The Verge reported that the Telltale is working with HBO on the video game version of "Game of Thrones" game, which should be ready by the start of 2014.

"We'll be taking advantage of all the fiction to make something great," Telltale Games chief Dan Connors said at Spike TV's Video Games Awards. "We're just really getting into it right now and thinking about characters — who has the most at stake, which has the biggest impact on the world."

Telltale was mum in November when IGN's Andrew Goldfarb reported it heard rumors from several sources about the "Game of Thrones" game.

"It's worth noting that, while 'Game of Thrones' is the title of HBO’s series based on Martin's books, the series itself is actually known as 'A Song of Ice and Fire,'" wrote Goldfarb for IGN Nov. 21. "The first book is titled 'A Game of Thrones.' It’s currently unclear what title Telltale will be using for its game, and whether the storyline will be based on the show, books, or something entirely new."

Mashable's Samatha Murphy Kelly wrote that the video games award show played a 25-second teaser trailer but it did not tell much about what fans should expect.

The television show based on George R.R. Martin's "Game of Thrones" first aired on HBO in 2011, becoming a ratings hit for the network and darling for critics, according to  Biography.com.

The show won two Primetime Emmy Awards at the 2013 ceremony earlier this year and Peter Dinklage won the Golden Globe for best supporting actor in a movie or mini-series in 2012, according to IMDb.com.
