KEY POINTS

  • "Elden Ring" is an upcoming action-adventure title being developed by FromSoftware
  • The game was originally announced to launch on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One
  • FromSoftware has not yet announced the release date of "Elden Ring" 

Following the game's official announcement at the E3 2019, FromSoftware has gone radio silent about "Elden Ring." The last update from the developers was the confirmation that the action-adventure title is still in development. Interestingly, a new piece of information about "Elden Ring" claims a rather disappointing game developer's decision.

On Reddit, user driqe claims that the release of "Elden Ring" has been delayed to 2022. The decision was reportedly made internally. Since the team has not yet announced the game's specific release date, this information will not be shared publicly, says the Reddit user. 

It also seems like the insider is confident about their sources, although they did not reveal their identity. Aside from the heartbreaking news about "Elden Ring," the insider also leaks details about a new IP FromSoftware is working on. Apparently, the gaming studio is working with Microsoft for an Xbox-exclusive title. The game will reportedly feature a futuristic setting with a hybrid character capable of climbing buildings.

Moreover, the game is similar to other "Souls" titles, with Microsoft's Turn 10 Studio giving FromSoftware a hand in the development area. Apparently, this is the same as what Sony and FromSoftware did when they developed " Bloodborne." But, like all other leaks, fans should take this information with a pinch of salt since this is not yet official.

FromSoftware continues to be mum about "Elden Ring." In January, several industry insiders claimed that the game is in its "polishing stage." The gaming studio is reportedly waiting for the right timing to announce the game's release date. Others believe that fans won't have to wait longer for the game's arrival, and more details might be released in the coming weeks.

With these conflicting claims and the absence of FromSoftware's official confirmation, fans are now confused about the game's release date. Technically, the gaming studio has not yet announced when it plans to release the game, and the release window that many currently believe is based on leaks and rumors.

"Elden Ring" is currently in development at FromSoftware." It was originally announced to launch on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
