Season 7 for HBO's "#Game of Thrones" has just wrapped up as it featured an epic cliffhanger. As fans begin the wait for the show's series finale, it seems that the franchise will be getting another video game adaptation and its gaming fan base are hoping that it would be better this time around.

Bethesda might finally do it

A Redditor (Yutrzenika1) posted over on the Games subreddit claiming that retail giant, Target, had a placeholder listing for "Game of Thrones." It also indicated the game developer #Bethesda, though it was not mentioned if it was for a video game listing and box art was not even showcased. The placeholder was already taken down by Target probably to avoid further confusion.

Most fans believe that this could be just a mistake. However, there are some suggesting that this could be a hint that Bethesda is finally pushing through with the development of a "Game of Thrones" title. Followers of the franchise might remember a number of "Game of Thrones" games over the years. However, some of them were not well-received by the fandom's player base.

Cyanide released a "Game of Thrones [VIDEO]" RPG back in 2012 right before the series even grew to become a worldwide phenomenon. Nevertheless, author George R.R. Martin was pretty much aware of the game's lackluster reception as he had discussions with another developer – Telltale to devise another "GoT" game which is now known as "Game of Thrones: A Telltale Game Series." The point and click adventure game came out in 2014 and garnered mixed to positive reviews from both critics and players.

Lately, the game maker is making a follow-up to the game series.

A 'Game of Thrones' prequel would be nice

If Bethesda were to make a "GoT" title, game pundits suggest that the developer should come up with a game that does not touch the events within the TV series. That being said, "Aegon's Conquest" and "Robert's Rebellion" are notable examples.

The wait begins

Meanwhile, it may well seem that "GoT" fans will be waiting way longer than previously speculated for the show's eighth and final season to drop. If recent reports are anything to go by, it is said that "Game of Thrones" #Season 8 won't air until 2019.

HBO is believed to be planning on extending the show's break gap to as long as 16 months or more. Albeit being rumored to only have six episodes in Season 8 [VIDEO], "GoT" is said to have a longer production process due to its epic scenes. The final installment of the series is rumored to kick off sometime in October as was previously tipped by some of its actors. Check out a video about the show here:
