KEY POINTS

  • FromSoftware might announce something about "Elden Ring" in the coming months
  • The game is rumored to come out this year
  • FromSoftware is reportedly working with Microsoft on a new IP 

Despite the deafening silence of FromSoftware about "Elden Ring," an industry insider predicted its release window and claimed that the developer would reveal something new about the highly anticipated game before the E3 2021 event.

The latest information about the much-awaited action-RPG title comes from industry insider Imran Khan via AltChar. In a Twitch livestream, the insider shared that he is 80% sure "Elden Ring" will be released this year. Khan also noted that fans would learn something new about the game before the E3 2021, which is scheduled for June.

When pressed for more details, the insider said he could not divulge more information about the game. Khan did not reveal his source either, making some fans doubt his claims.

It is worth noting that the insider also shared interesting information about the game in the past. In fact, he was the one who previously claimed that the community would not get any "Elden Ring" news until 2022, according to AltChar. Unfortunately, this is the only information the industry has about the game. Official information is still non-existent at this point, leading others to believe that the game has been canceled.

Earlier, Reddit user driqe claimed that fans might not see the game penned by George R.R. Martin until 2022. According to them, the decision was made internally and since the team has not yet announced its release date, the information will not be shared with the public. The insider also revealed that FromSoftware is working with Microsoft on a new IP, which could be an Xbox-exclusive title. Hybrid characters climbing up on structures and a futuristic setting would be featured in the said game. 

It could be another "Souls"-like title with Turn 10 Studio helping FromSoftware on the development side. Fans should take this information with a pinch of salt, however. For now, all these conflicting details about the potential release date and delayed release of "Elden Ring" should be considered rumors or speculations until they are confirmed by FormSoftware or Bandai Namco.

"Elden Ring" was announced at the E3 2019. Fans have high expectations from the game since it's created by Hidetaka Miyazaki and written by George R.R. Martin. The game was announced to launch on PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
