At this point, any FromSoftware fan who is still looking forward to Elden Ring – be it news or even its future release – freezes with excitement about something new. The hype generated in the game is enormous, but little is yet known about what will happen, beyond Jeff Grubb saying that Elden Ring will not take “months and months to show. “
But that could change, as an insider at ResetEra has left a little bit about the game launching around mid-2021. Taepoppuri, the username on which the information revolves, explains that the initial launch date to which they were initially anchored was March 2021, but that due to the coronavirus pandemic, it was extended a few more months.
If we take a look at games released by FromSoftware, Demon’s Souls, Dark Souls 2, Bloodborne, and Dark Souls 3, they all had a February or March release date. Given this track record, it would make sense for the company to target March as the launch month for the Elden Ring. But, given the effects of COVID-19, in companies, it would not be surprising if the plans were truly truncated.
But it does not end there, another known insider – Nibel – commented in the same ResetEra thread confirming Taepoppuri. ” Taepo has a good font and that’s all I can say ” with a thumb up emoji. And if that’s still not enough, Target adds one more piece to the puzzle it joins as possible evidence, listing Elden Ring on its reservation page for June 30, 2021.
Surely, like many others, the desperation for news is full, even more so if we know that since the title was announced there have been few – if not almost none – the information that has been given about the game.
Keep in mind that for now there are no official confirmations, but luckily there won’t be much left for FromSoftware to take a definitive position, right?
