Elden Ring Announcement May Not Be Too Far Away, Says Insider

A new announcement regarding Elden Ring, the next game from Demon’s Souls and Dark Souls developer FromSoftware, may not be too far away. The rumour of a new update on the game comes from video games insider Jeff Grubb, who has teased that an announcement may not be that far off.

Now this is purely speculation and nothing is officially confirmed, but there have been enough rumblings lately to suggest that there is some truth to the latest rumours.

It’s also worth keeping in mind that video games journalist Jeff Grubb of VentureBeat has a fairly reliable track record when it comes to breaking news.

Jeff Grub was speaking to GamesBeat in a video talking about last week’s The Game Awards when he stated that he believes that the development of Elden Ring is that far gone, FromSoftware could have shown something at the awards ceremony if it wanted to.

They’re obviously working on this game, they didn’t show it here, but I think they probably could have if they wanted to,” said Grubb in the GamesBeat video below. “I think it’s at that state. But let’s just give it a month or two more.

Grubb continued: “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.

The speculation provided by Grubb certainly coincides with recent reports that Elden Ring was supposed to release March 2021 before it was delayed internally.

The reasons for the delay were reportedly due to COVID-19, and it is believed that Elden Ring was pushed back a further two to three months.

Additionally, Xbox chief Phil Spencer confirmed that he has actually played a build of Elden Ring which he described as FromSoftware’s “ambitious game” ever.
