IN A NUTSHELL:
- According to Jeff Grubb from VentureBeat, Elden Ring's presentation may not happen until June;
- The reason is the delay caused by the recent leak.
Elden Ring is one of those games that generate a lot of excitement among gamers. It's hardly surprising - the developers from FromSoftware, which gave the world the great Dark Souls series, the equally successful Bloodborne or Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, are responsible for the title. The new work of the Japanese team was announced in June 2019, but we still have not had the opportunity to see it in action. According to VentureBeat's Jeff Grubb, this is partly due to the recent leak that forced the developers to change their plans (the statement comes from The Game Mess Show podcast).
"“I’m less certain [of a March reveal], and I’m less certain because I think that the leak might have messed things up a little bit. But I still think things are happening, things are coming together. The reason I think the leak might have messed things up is I just think Bandai Namco is cracking down, figuring out how to adjust the messaging, make sure they fully understand how the leak happened, and then continue down the path toward officially announcing the game," stated Jeff Grubb.
The aforementioned editor believes that under the circumstances, we may not see a full-fledged gameplay of Elden Ring until June, which is when the usual big presentations and announcements take place.
"“And there’s going to be opportunities for them to do so. If they don’t want to do it on their own – they could do it on their own – but if they don’t want to do it on their own, if they want to do it with a partner, June is not that far away. E3 is coming. If I were gonna put it on the list, I would expect it by E3, and no later," the journalist added.
As a reminder, Elden Ring is set to release on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One (although a release on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X / S seems to be a certainty).
