Elden Ring Release Date Reportedly Revealed
FromSoftware’s upcoming Elden Ring game may be arriving sooner than we expected. Originally announced in June at E3 2019, the collaborative title between the popular Dark Souls studio and George R. R. Martin sports an open and vast world that will blend classic Souls-like action with George R. R. Martin’s famous world building. Now, a new leak suggests that the release date for the game may be less than a year away.
Retail store Target recently updated its listing for Elden Ring with a release date of June 30, 2020, specifically stating that those that pre-order will receive the game shortly after the date. This is particularly interesting because normal placeholder dates tend to be the absolute last day of the current year, while Target is listing the date as, of all things, the end of June. The other options is Target simply knows that the game will be releasing in Q1 of 2020, and as such went with the June 30th placeholder date to plan accordingly.
The other option is that June 30th isn’t a placeholder date, and is in fact the actual scheduled release date for Elden Ring. That said, the title was only announced a few months ago, and changes are that the title still has another year, maybe two before it’s ready to be released. Either way, we’re definitely ready to play it. Here’s the quick blurb of the game from Target’s listing:
“Elden Ring, developed by FromSoftware, Inc. and Bandai Namco Entertainment Inc., is a fantasy action-RPG adventure set within a world created by Hidetaka Miyazaki -creator of the influential DARK SOULS video game series; and George R.R. Martin-author of The New York Times best-selling fantasy series, A Song of Ice and Fire. Danger and discovery lurk around every corner in FromSoftware’s largest game to-date.”
Elden Ring is currently in development with expected release platforms of PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
