KEY POINTS

  • "Elden Ring" was revealed at Microsoft's E3 2019 Presentation
  • The upcoming RPG was announced as a multiplatform game
  • A screengrab from a leaked teaser video of the game, however, now only shows an Xbox logo

The highly anticipated reveal of the action-RPG game "Elden Ring" is reportedly happening at the upcoming E3 2021 Xbox Presentation. It might be announced as an Xbox exclusive title and could thereby come as a major disappointment to PlayStation users,  according to a new leak.

The fresh "Elden Ring" information came from Twitter user Idle Sloth, who shared a screengrab from a leaked teaser video of the game. Based on the leak, the upcoming RPG title from FromSoftware is set to get a worldwide reveal trailer on June 14, most likely during the E3 event. Aside from the date and the game's publisher and developer, the image shows only the Xbox logo.

This attracted many speculations from fans, including the possibility that the game would release as an Xbox exclusive title. If it's not going to launch on Xbox exclusively, it would likely be tied heavily to an Xbox release and arrives on Game Pass at launch. "Elden Ring" was announced to launch on most gaming platforms, such as Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC.

This could still change if the current rumor is accurate. The rumored worldwide launch is within this year's E3 schedule, which falls between June 12 and June 15. "Elden Ring" was announced at E3 2019 and it would make sense if its next big announcement happens again at the most prominent game convention of the year. 

Some fans believe that it is unlikely for Bandai Namco, the game's publisher, to have its press conference at E3 2021. The video game publisher confirmed that it would be at the gaming convention in some capacity. If Bandai Namco won't have its conference, the leaked screengrab may reveal which presentation will handle the launch of "Elden Ring."

Also, even though the game was announced as a multiplatform title, it was first revealed at Microsoft's E3 2019 press conference. It is worth noting that the image originally came from 4Chan, a notorious site for both fake and accurate leaks. Until now, neither FromSoftware nor Bandai Namco has said anything about "Elden Ring." In this case, fans should temper their expectations and take this latest leak with a hefty amount of salt.
