Elden Ring is slowly becoming a Yeti: everyone talks about it, but nobody has seen it.
FromSoftware‘s next game was announced more than a year ago, but there hasn’t been any public news about Elden Ring since – just rumours. Bandai Namco was reportedly planning to show the game on several events that then all got cancelled. And now, we have VentureBeat’s Jeff Grubb coming in, and since he has been right about several announcements before they were revealed, he might turn things on their heads once more.
Grubb says that we don’t have to wait for several months to see Elden Ring again. He bases this claim on what he heard a few weeks ago. Back then, he predicted a The Game Awards reveal for Hidetaka Miyazaki’s next project, but that didn’t happen. A few days before Geoff Keighley’s event, he turned pessimistic, but by that point, people on Reddit were eagerly expecting the game to be showcased last week, which only resulted in their disappointment.
„They’re working on this game… they didn’t show it here, but I think they probably could have if they wanted to. I think it’s at that state. But let’s just give it a month or two more. Here’s one thing I’ve heard that I can say: have a little bit more patience, but just a little bit more. That doesn’t mean days, and I don’t think it quite means weeks, but it doesn’t mean months and months and months,” Grubb said.
That sounds like Elden Ring might be showcased in January, and Grubb jokingly added its development is far further than BioWare’s next Mass Effect. And by that point, we suspect Elden Ring, which had its lore created by George R.R. Martin (Game of Thrones) to not be on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
