FromSoftware‘s next game, Elden Ring – which is worked on by George R. R. Martin, too – has no release date known at the moment, but it seems that a few people already know a thing or two that we don’t.
Target, a major American retailer, already has a store page for Elden Ring on the Xbox One. That’s alright, as big games tend to get one early, and when new information arrives, these pages get updated constantly. The problem here is that they also wrote a release date. Sure, it could be a placeholder date, but that tends to be the final day of the year. Now, what Target (who can be called reliable when it comes to release dates) lists, is something different. They say the game is coming on June 30. While this also could be a placeholder date (the final day of the first half of the year), but it’s a Tuesday, a day that many multiplatform games tend to choose. (Meanwhile, Nintendo uses Fridays.)
„Elden Ring, developed by FromSoftware and Bandai Namco is a fantasy action-RPG adventure set within a world created by Hidetaka Miyazaki (creator of the Dark Souls video game series) and George R.R. Martin (author of The New York Times best-selling fantasy series, A Song of Ice and Fire) Danger and discovery lurk around every corner in FromSoftware’s largest game to-date.
Hidetaka Miyazaki is known for directing critically-acclaimed games in beloved franchises including Armored Core, Dark Souls, and Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice. George R.R. Martin is the #1 New York Times bestselling author of many novels, including the acclaimed series A Song of Ice and Fire. As a writer-producer, he has worked on The Twilight Zone, Beauty and the Beast, and various feature films and pilots that were never made,” a press release says.
If Target is right, then Elden Ring will launch on June 30, 2020 (or the first half of 2020 if it’s a placeholder…) on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
