KEY POINTS

  • The release window of "Elden Ring" may have already been confirmed by FromSoftware
  • It appears that the game is coming in June of this year
  • The release window is seemingly hinted in one of the latest campaigns of the game developer

The much-awaited and highly anticipated RPG “Elden Ring,” which has the help of “A Song of Ice and Fire” writer George R.R. Martin in its world-building has a release window, but nothing is sure yet. The wizards behind “Metal Wolf Chaos,” “Demon Souls,” “BloodBorne,” and “Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice” have worked as hard as possible to get “Elden Ring” out by June 2020. The good news is from the official site of FromSoftware that seemingly confirms this release window.

The release window of “Elden Ring” is on the New Year’s greeting card campaign listed by the game developer itself, FromSoftware. The campaign comes with instructions for users to register an email address to get a digital New Year card of their choice of wallpaper that they can use on their smartphones. “Elden Ring” is one of the games listed that users can choose with the text that appears to reveal the June 2020 release window. 

The campaign has some details that suggest the game’s release window that reads, “You can choose from three types, “SEKIRO: SHADOWS DIE TWICE” and “METAL WOLF CHAOS XD” released in 2019, and “ELDEN RING” released in June.” The site is in Japanese and was translated by Chrome from the Japanese website. Users can register at the campaign on Saturday, Jan. 4, 2020, that could also let the user be a part of the New Year Gift Lottery where they could get game-related goods.

It is not clear if the June date is intentionally written to hint the release date of “Elden Ring.” It is possible that it could just be a mistranslation where the term June refers to the June 2019 E3 reveal of “Elden Ring.” But, if the release pattern of FromSoftware is to go by, the June 2020 release window, adds up.

FromSoftware started working on “Elden Ring” in 2017, which gives the most waited RPG a three-year development cycle. “Dark Souls: was developed in a matter of two years and its sequel “Dark Souls II” was developed in around a couple of years, while “Dark Souls III had a three-year development cycle. We may end up getting the actual trailer of “Elden Ring” trailers and the official release date soon.

For now, we suggest taking these details with a grain of salt. “Elden Ring” is slated to launch on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
