Unfortunately for fans of Dark Souls and Bloodborne, it sounds like From Software's highly anticipated Elden Ring — which is co-created by George R.R. Martin and Hidetaka Miyazaki — won't hit stores anytime soon.
According to Kinda Funny's Imran Khan, chances are Elden Ring won't be released — or even showcased — this year, suggesting that the beloved developer's next big thing will make its debut in 2021 at the earliest.
Considering that Bloodborne launched back in March 2015, Dark Souls III in March 2016, and Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice in March 2019, Elden Ring could very well be made available in March 2021, as the team at From Software has established a successful pattern, with its last few titles debuting during that release window.
Although we still know next to nothing about Elden Ring — which was announced at E3 2019 — the long-awaited masocore game is being scored by Yuka Kitamura, the award-winning composer responsible for the soundtracks for Dark Souls II, Bloodborne, Dark Souls III, Déraciné, and finally Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice.
As a friendly reminder, From Software's most recent video game — Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice — ended up taking the big prize for Game of the Year (or simply GOTY) at last year's The Game Awards in Los Angeles.
Not going to comment specifically on Bloodborne on PC rumors, but suffice to say From Soft fans probably have a lot of reasons to be happy in the next two years.— Imran Khan (@imranzomg) June 4, 2020
Things that people think are hitting 2020 might not hit 2020 or even be shown in 2020.— Imran Khan (@imranzomg) June 4, 2020
