Kadokawa Corp, the parent company of FromSoftware, revealed that its upcoming new games have been delayed due to COVID-19. This, obviously, also includes Elden Ring, a title that a lot of gamers have been looking forward to.
According to the company’s latest FY2021 earnings, Elden Ring may not release by March 2022. Thus, the earliest you can expect to get your hands on this game is April 2022. Now obviously Elden Ring won’t come out in April 2022, but until then we can safely assume that it won’t come out.
To be honest, this does not really surprise us. After all, we haven’t seen anything about this game yet. Hell, even its gameplay trailer (which leaked in March 2020) has not been officially released yet.
My guess is that Bandai Namco and FromSoftware will release this gameplay trailer at E3 2021 as Bandai Namco will be present at this gaming event.
Lastly, here is an off-cam video, showing six
minutes seconds of in-engine footage from Elden Ring. It doesn’t show much, so be sure to temper your expectations.
Stay tuned for more!
Freelance 3D/Concept Artist, Jack Phan, got in touch with us about the leaked video. Apparently its first is from an environment he created. After taking a close look, these environments appear to be the same. As such, this leaked video may not feature actual scenes from Elden Ring.

Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
