  • The "Elden RIng" was anticipated to be at the Xbox May event but it never made an appearance
  • A new report claimed that the game developer could be preparing the "Elden Ring" to release on the PS5 and Xbox Series X

"Elden Ring" is one of the highly awaited titles anticipated to arrive in 2020. Since its official unveiling at the E3 2019, From Software and Bandai Namco Entertainment went dark in revealing details about the action adventure title. While the game is slated to launch on the current generation gaming consoles, there is a high chance that it could release on the PS5 and Xbox Series X.

The latest information about "Elden Ring" came from a recent report from Gamerant. The site is trying to determine when fans could hear about the game again following its official announcement. Earlier, fans were anticipating that "Elden Ring" would be included in the list of third-party games at Xbox's May presentation, but it never happened.

According to the report, there is no definite timeline that From Software shared, but it noted that "Elden Ring" has been in development for a few years. Also, the report pointed out that there is no credible leak or rumor that could point when the game would make an appearance. The site toyed with the idea that "it's very possible that the game's release may be shifted to next-generation consoles, considering there's only around four-to-six months until the PS5 and Xbox Series X are set to release. That's not even considering any unforeseen factors possibly delaying the game, which has become a common occurrence in 2020."

Based on the release pattern of From Software, most of its titles were released around March. We are now in the month of May, and the gaming studio is maybe planning also to release the game in the next generation gaming consoles. It is also essential to take into consideration that the COVID-19 pandemic may have affected the development and production of "Elden Ring", but if it was, the effect might be minimal.

The site also predicted that unless "Elden Ring" could get a surprise release this year, it would not probably show up for some time. The next gaming even to look forward to is the Summer Game Fest, which would replace the annual E3 event. But, at this point, we could not say when "Elden Ring" would make another appearance.
