A promising 2022 for Sanderson
“I’ve been working on a video game for several years, and I suspect it will be announced this year . Let the speculation begin! ”He reveals in an entry on his official website. “Note: it is not about one of my properties, but something new that I have built with them. It’s a video game company that many of you have heard of, but it’s probably not the one you’re thinking of. Not that one either, ”he concludes.
No further details have emerged, so we have to wait to see what happens next year. Sanderson has also shared the status of his projects in film and television.

He is not the only author who has decided to make the leap into the video game industry. The most recent and prominent example is R.R. Martin. The Game of Thrones author worked with From Software to build the Elden Ring mythology and universe. “The offer was too exciting to refuse. Miyazaki and his team at FromSoftware were doing something amazing with wonderful art. What they wanted from me was for me to do a bit of world-building: a deep, dark, reverberating universe that would serve the game they planned to create, ”he said.
In the case of Elden Ring, we won’t have to wait long to play it. Its launch is scheduled for February 25 on PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X | S, Xbox One and PC.
