US Supermarket Target has Accidentally Leaked "Bethesda: Game of Thrones"

On the off chance that the thought of the most recent season of Game of Thrones arriving at an end fills you with despair, you might be eager to hear that a computer game based on the popular fantasy epic is rumored to be in progress.

Initially spotted by "That Damn Kid" on NeoGaf , US grocery store Target right now has a posting up on its site entitled "Bethesda: Game of Thrones". There are no other images or any description relating to this, it's just an empty white space and a title and things like these tend to leave much to the imagination.

There's no other data or any other on the page and, regardless of bits of gossip that the game could be reported toward the finish of the previous evening's season finale, nothing else has been uncovered.

To refresh our memories, back around 2011, Todd Howard, director and executive producer at Bethesda Game Studios, told the press that there have been serious talks between Bethesda and HBO to make a Game of Thrones-based video game.

The gaming studio ultimately refused to push through with making a game based on the beloved tv-series because they have decided to make a fantasy game of their own, and we all know today that game to be The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. And that was the last thing we heard about that since. Since then, there had been no mention about this meeting ever taking a progress and the fans were just left to wishful thinking - until now, that is.

Bethesda - the computer game distributor behind hits like The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim and Fallout 4 - is known to have two anonymous, huge scale IP's in progress, and has for some time been supposed to be taking a shot at a Game Of Thrones game.

Bethesda has made it very clear that these two project they are working on are neither a Fallout game or the next Elder Scrolls. But one of these two has been rumored to be a game called Starfield, but there is not so much to be speculated on the other title, however, this leak from Target may very well fill this gap and provide the answer fans have been itching about.

Here's what the Target page looked like:

Though this is not an official announcement and looks like a technical mistake on the part of Target, we must keep in mind that Target is a massive brand in the US and for them to make a "leak" like this and not be intentional is somewhat a far fetched idea if you ask us. This looks like one of those events that smell too fishy to be just a coincidence.

With that said, since this is nothing but speculation as of this writing, neither Target nor Bethesda has commented regarding the matter, we suggest that you take this just like any other rumor you encounter - with a grain of salt.
