Elden Ring Reveal Event Reportedly Being Delayed Due To Recent Leak
It looks like the legion of fans looking forward to more Elden Ring news may have to wait a bit longer. Earlier this month, we reported on the leaked gameplay trailer of the upcoming FromSoftware title that reaffirms that it will indeed essentially be an open-world Dark Souls game. Now, a new report suggests that the previously scheduled reveal event is being put off due to the leak.
As reported by industry insider Nibel, a new video by VentureBeat journalist Jeff Grubb suggests that an Elden Ring event that was apparently slated for later this month will no longer be happening due to the leak. A “combination of sources” told Grubb that some type of Elden Ring event would be happening by the end of March, though Grubb was weary about saying it was to take place towards the end of the month as the date apparently wasn’t completely locked in.
Elden Ring was never going to be revealed in March and the leaks haven’t caused any plans to change. People are just using the leaks as an excuse as for why their inaccurate predictions aren’t coming true.

As with most leaks, there are people on the internet to refute them. Shown above, established Souls-like community leader Lance McDonald claims that there was never an Elden Ring planned for March, and that people – like Jeff Grubb – are using the leak to justify why their previous predictions aren’t coming true. Given that the leaked trailer didn’t seem particularly polished, my guess is that McDonald is correct, but that’s just my two cents.
Elden Ring is currently in development.
