Joshua Rubin to work on upcoming Game of Thrones title

Telltale Games has picked up Destiny writer Joshua Rubin to help develop the studio's upcoming take on Game of Thrones.

Rubin had worked at Bungie on the Destiny franchise for the past two years, following stints at Ubisoft, Capcom and Visceral Games.

"Thrilled to share that, after two great years at Bungie, I’ve moved to sunny CA to join [Telltale Games]!" Rubin posted on Twitter.

"[Game of Thrones' show runners] Benioff and Weiss have set an incredibly high standard for writing. I'm inspired by their work every season. I’m gonna have to up my game!"

Rubin later explained to Gamasutra that the offer to weave tales based on George R.R. Martin's famous works was to good to refuse.

"I couldn't turn down an offer from Telltale, to create games that are entirely about story," he said.
