Elden Ring Delayed To February 2022, New Network Test Announced

Elden Ring

While production on Elden Ring has seemingly been going swimmingly these past few years, FromSoftware has announced that their next souls-like title has officially been delayed. The good news is that the delay only amounts to a little over a month past its previous release date, though a delay of any kind is still disheartening, especially for a game as highly anticipated at this one.

Elden Ring developer FromSoftware took to Twitter to announce that the game has been delayed, with the release date being pushed back from January 21 to February 25. The announcement itself was light on details, with the developer simply asking that fans accept their “sincere apologies for keeping you waiting.”

The release date for ELDEN RING has been changed to Friday, 25th February 2022.
Please accept our sincere apologies for keeping you waiting. Your patience and understanding mean a great deal to us.

On a more positive note, FromSoftware also announced that Elden Ring is getting a closed network test for the game’s multiplayer component. The test will run from November 12-14, with interested parties currently able to sign up for it on the game’s website. The available session times can be seen on the website, but, for the hell of it here they are:

  • Session 1 – November 12th (Fri) from 3:00am to 6:00am PT
  • Session 2 – November 12th (Fri) from 7:00pm to 10:00pm PT
  • Session 3 – November 13th (Sat) from 11:00am to 2:00pm PT
  • Session 4 – November 14th (Sun) from 3:00am to 6:00am PT
  • Session 5 – November 14th (Sun) from 7:00pm to 10:00pm PT

Registration for the network test closes on November 1, 2021. Elden Ring is now slated to release on February 25th, 2022.
