They have an idea of how it will end...
In an interview with Vanity Fair, the creators of Game of Thrones revealed that the show will be done after about seven or eight seasons. Here are highlights:
Author George R.R. Martin on revealing the ending: "I can give them the broad strokes of what I intend to write, but the details aren't there yet. I'm hopeful that I can not let them catch up with me."
Co-creator David Benioff on meeting with Martin about the ending: "Last year we went out to Santa Fe for a week to sit down with him [Martin] and just talk through where things are going, because we don't know if we are going to catch up and where exactly that would be. If you know the ending, then you can lay the groundwork for it. And so we want to know how everything ends. We want to be able to set things up. So we just sat down with him and literally went through every character."
On finishing after seven or eight seasons: "It doesn't just keep on going because it can. I think the desire to milk more out of it is what would eventually kill it, if we gave in to that."
