Shanghai-based games developer Yoozoo originally acquired the rights to make the game from Warner Brother last summer.

Based on HBO's long-spanning TV series, the game has been described by the developer as a war strategy game.

Players will also be able to interact with various characters from the houses of Westeros, spanning different periods of the saga.

It is currently slated for a release on mobile but no date has been revealed.
