For years, the industry accustomed us to having great revelations and advances of the games in development, turning hype into a complement for better and for worse. However, the reality of 2020 and 2021, years marked by a pandemic, is that there is little to show and if anyone had any hope that Elden Ring would come out with new information, they should know that it will not.
XBOX HAS NO PLANS TO SHOW ANY OF ELDEN RING
In recent days, reports emerged that Microsoft’s games division is preparing an event for March where it will present the games that are on the way to its platforms and the hype went through the roof when it was pointed out that one of those titles would be Elden Ring, the long-awaited new FromSoftware title that has been created in conjunction with George RR Martin, writer of the play that inspired Game of Thrones. Just as the hype was beginning to build around this possibility, Aaron Greenberg, Xbox General Marketing Manager, took it upon himself to stop everything.
Just to set expectations: this is not happening. There are always things we have in the works, but nothing coming soon that would feature game announcements or world premieres like this. https://t.co/nO868SCbpZ

As the Xbox manager points out, there will be no announcement of Elden Ring in a possible event, come on, he did not even confirm that a presentation was on the way, but if so, the hype for the new FromSoftware game will have to be saved for best chance.
2021 COULD BE A YEAR WITH FEW MAJOR GAMES ON THE MARKET
That said, it is likely that in case Xbox does an event in the next few weeks, it will focus on games that we already know and that are on the way for this year, the most important of them Halo Infinite. , and that is the same. It has happened in the cases of PlayStation and Nintendo, but it must be taken into account that although the pandemic gave a great boost to video games in the market, it also had a negative impact on development processes and it is very difficult that this year we will see Big surprise launches, in the end, is what’s in store for 2021.
