Elden Ring Concept Art, Release Window Seemingly Leaked
Fans looking forward to FromSoftware’s Elden Ring have had to subsist on next to no new info about the title since its original announcement at E3 2019. Though it likely won’t be long before new footage is released from the developer, a recent leak has seemingly jumped the gun by revealing two pieces of concept art alongside an alleged release window.
The Elden Ring leak comes by way of Chinese Soulsborne content creator 龙崎棒棒糖, who posted a video showing two pieces of concept art while also revealing some new information about the game. Unfortunately said video has since been taken down, though not before the internet did its work and summarized all the relevant information.

According to Redditor KevinD26, the content creator confirmed that development on Elden Ring concluded during the first half of 2020, and it is currently in the polishing stage. The title will also feature enemies that are significantly more complex in design compared to those seen in, say, Dark Souls, and there will also be “cthulu-style enemies” similar to those found in Bloodborne.
The content creator goes on to suggest that the game will be released at some point in 2021, and a new trailer should be released after the Japanese New Year. As always, one should take leaks like these with a grain of salt. Still, the content creator leans on the more reputable side of things, so here’s hoping they’re right about Elden Ring releasing in 2021.
