• "Elden Ring” was launched at the E3 2019
  • Since then, there has been an information drought about the game
  • From Software finally speaks up about “Elden Ring”

After almost a year of silence, gaming studio From Software finally speaks up on the status of the heavily rumored action RPG title “Elden Ring.”

From Software recently announced a new update for “Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice,” and thanked players who have supported the game since it was officially launched a year ago. In a subsequent tweet, the gaming studio mentioned “Elden Ring,” seemingly confirming that it is in development. From Software thanked fans for showing support, and encouraged everyone to look forward to the much-awaited dark fantasy action RPG.

The tweet comes with a photo of a red-haired character fans first saw in its 500-days-old launch trailer. From Software did not say anything about the state of the game’s development or even hint at its release date. The gaming studio simply teased that fans should look out for more “Elden Ring” updates in the coming days.

From Software’s latest statement about “Elden Ring” somehow tempers fears that the game was canceled. The last time fans heard from the gaming studio was at the 23rd Japan Media Arts Festival. At that time, Game Director Hidetaka Miyazaki said in a letter read by the event’s hosts that “Elden Ring” will be the “deepest” the gaming studio has ever done in terms of history and mythos.”

Additionally, Hidetaka mentioned that the upcoming dark action fantasy RPG would feature themes prevalent in George R.R. Martin’s works. A leak spotted by AltChar on 4Chan claimed that fans might hear from “Elden Ring” at the forthcoming TGA 2020, which is set for Dec 10. The leak also mentioned that the game would be a cross-gen one and would run at 60 FPS on next-gen gaming consoles and PC.

Higher resolution support and better textures would be observed in “Elden Ring,” according to the leak. Aside from this, it would reportedly support cross-platform multiplayer between Xbox and PC. Fans are looking forward to hearing more about the upcoming game, but it looks like From Software is not yet ready to share any official information.

“Elden Ring” is in development and was earlier announced to launch on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC.
