Bethesda passed on a Game of Thrones title

Unfortunately Bethesda had to turn down the offer to make a "A Song of Ice and Fire" cRPG, Todd Howard explains.

&ldquo;With&nbsp;A Song of Ice and Fire, we went &lsquo;We want to do that!&rsquo; People in our studio liked it, and it seeped in a bit to what we were doing,&rdquo; Howard explained. &ldquo;We were actually asked a while ago to turn those books into games.&rdquo;
So why didn&rsquo;t they take the leap? According to Howard, the idea of a partnership was very tempting, but the team was just too invested in their own IP.
&ldquo;We wanted to do our own world. That&rsquo;s where we wanted to put out time into. Before we were even making&nbsp;Skyrim, there was a conversation with George R.R. Martin&rsquo;s people. They thought it would be a good match&mdash;and so did we, actually&mdash;but then we thought about if that was where we wanted to spend our time. It was tempting, though.&rdquo;
We can only imagine how awesome that would have been.
