According to the latest rumours, Elden Ring development is doing fine and the long-awaited title could launch shortly after the next-generation consoles, similar to how Dark Souls 2 released.
Rumours about Elden Ring is all we had for the last year or so. Sadly, From Software did not release a single update about the development of the game ever since they officially revealed the game at E3 2019 Xbox stage.
Despite this, speculation about development troubles and even cancellation is mostly unfounded but some would say that FromSoftware fans certainly have a reason to be concerned with a lack of communication from the Japanese developer.
However, according to the latest info from an Italian journo that apparently knew about FromSoftware's collab with George R.R. Martin, before Elden Ring was revealed, the game development is doing just fine, so worry not.
"The game is doing fine, don't worry," he replied when asked about Elden Ring . He then teased the release date for Spring 2021, saying that history could "repeat itself" which means that Elden Ring could release shortly after the launch of next-generation consoles, just like Dark Souls 2 released after PlayStation 4 and Xbox One launch.
It is safe to say that Elden Ring will most definitely arrive to next-gen consoles, since PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X are set to launch sometime during Holiday season and November 2020, respectively. It is also obvious that the game won't be coming in the upcoming months due to the fact that we did not even see gameplay yet, so Spring 2021 release date does seem like the only realistic possibility.
As always with rumours, insider information and leaks, take this with a grain of salt, just like any other unofficial info.
