We might finally hear more about the elusive Elden Ring in 2021, as one of the marketing agents at FromSoftware has hinted on Twitter that updates could happen next year. Elden Ring is an upcoming collaboration between FromSoftware of Dark Souls fame, and George R.R. Martin of A Song of Ice and Fire/Game of Thrones fame.
Elden Ring was announced during Microsoft’s E3 2019 conference. Since then, fans have heard practically nothing about the game, other than the fact that it’s still in active development. The game has been the source of numerous rumors, but no concrete information has been released by FromSoftware. There’s still yet to be any actual gameplay footage of Elden Ring. A lot of fans expected to see Elden Ring appear at The Game Awards, but it was nowhere to be seen, even though it won the Most Anticipated Game award.
2020 is drawing to a close, and there are lots of reasons to hope that 2021 will be a better year. 2021 could also be the year when we finally learn more about Elden Ring. FromSoftware promotion, marketing, and communications officer Yasuhiro Kitao thanked the fans who voted for Elden Ring at The Game Awards on Twitter, and that he expects to see fans in 2021. This is one of the few comments made about Elden Ring to come from an official source since its announcement. It seems likely that players will finally learn more about Elden Ring next year, with a possible release date announcement or launch planned for the end of 2021.
There is a lot of speculation that Elden Ring will launch in 2021. There have been rumors that development was delayed due to the pandemic. The fact that 2020 had a packed release schedule of games compared to next year might also have led to a delay, especially with Demon’s Souls receiving so much attention as one of the few PS5 exclusives. Releasing Elden Ring in 2020 might have taken the spotlight away from the Demon’s Souls remake.
FromSoftware fans are eager to see the company’s latest game, especially as it has a world developed by the creator of Westeros. There are so many rumors circulating about the game that it’s hard to know what to expect going in. The initial gameplay trailer only showed a few cool-looking monsters, and it’s a safe bet that they’re all boss encounters. Outside of them, we know practically nothing about Elden Ring, but the mystery of the game could finally end in 2021.
Elden Ring is currently in development for PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
