It seems that From Software actually planned on showcasing Elden Ring this month. However, due to the recent leak which saw snippets of the trailer appear online, the reveal won’t happen until a later date.
According to reliable insider Jeff Grubb, he says that Bandai Namco originally planned to unveil Elden Ring sometime in March but the leak has pushed everything back. In addition, Jeff claims that Bandai Namco are currently investigating the leak to find the source of it.
In a new episode of The Game Mess Show, Jeff said:
I’m less certain [about an Elden Ring reveal in March], and I’m less certain because I think that the leak might have messed things up a little bit. […] The reason I think the leak might have messed things up, is I just think Bandai Namco are cracking down, figuring out how to adjust the messaging, making sure they fully understand how the leak happened…and then [they’ll] continue down the path toward officially announcing the game.
So when will Elden Ring finally be showcased? Well, according to Jeff he claims that a lot of publishers are planning announcements for games around the usual E3 scheduled time. This is early June. Bandai Namco has most likely jumped on that bandwagon.
There’s going to be opportunities for them to [reveal Elden Ring]. If they don’t want to do it on their own — and they could do it on their own — but if they don’t want to do it on their own, June is not that far away. E3 is coming. If I were going to put it on the list, I would say, I would expect it by E3 and no later.
Elden Ring is a highly anticipated hardcore RPG collaboration between Game of Thrones creator George R.R. Martin and the Dark Souls masters at From Software. It was previously reported that the game would bring back some elements including a character class creator, and co-op and multiplayer components.
