Could the leak a few days ago have resulted in the official reveal of Elden Ring being pushed back? At least Gamesbeat editor and industry insider Jeff Grubb suggests this possibility.
In the past few weeks, the rumor has persisted that the official reveal of FromSoftware’s role-playing game Elden Ring could take place this month. This was reported by at least several insiders who are considered reliable sources.
Perhaps the leak a few days ago caused Bandai Namco Entertainment and FromSoftware to decide to delay the reveal of Elden Ring a little. At least Jeff Grubb, a Gamesbeat editor and a reliable source for industry insiders, made this assumption.
“I’m less certain [about an Elden Ring reveal in March], and I’m less certain because I think that the leak might have messed things up a little bit. […] The reason I think the leak might have messed things up, is I just think Bandai Namco are cracking down, figuring out how to adjust the messaging, making sure they fully understand how the leak happened…and then [they’ll] continue down the path toward officially announcing the game,” said Grubb.
“There’s going to be opportunities for them to [reveal Elden Ring]. If they don’t want to do it on their own — and they could do it on their own — but if they don’t want to do it on their own, June is not that far away. E3 is coming. If I were going to put it on the list, I would say, I would expect it by E3 and no later,” he further stated.
Of course, the information from Grubb has not yet been officially confirmed. Elden Ring was confirmed for the PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 as part of the official announcement.
Since the role-playing game apparently still has a long way to go, the assumption is certainly that the new Xbox Series X/S and PlayStation 5 consoles could also be supplied with the next major work from FromSoftware.
