Journalist Jeff Grubb says it’s not going to be “months and months and months” before we see the game.
Elden Ring has been one of the most hotly anticipated people for millions since it was announced over a year ago, but since said announcement, there have been next to no updates on the game. FromSoftware have thanked fans for their patience, but as more opportunities for them to show the game pass by without any new updates – such as the recent The Game Awards – and those updates still don’t come, fans are growing more impatient.
However, it seems it might not be too long before we get another look at Elden Ring. GamesBeat’s Jeff Grubb recently spoke about FromSoftware’s upcoming RPG in a podcast, and suggested that Elden Ring is far enough along in its development that the developer could have shown it off at The Game Awards if they had wanted to (which falls in line with recent reports). Grubb went on to say that FromSoftware will probably provide a proper update on Elden Ring before too long- perhaps even a month or two.
“They’re obviously working on this game… they didn’t show it here, but I think they probably could have if they wanted to,” Grubb said (via VGC). “I think it’s at that state. But let’s just give it a month or two more.”
“Here’s one thing I’ve heard that I can say: have a little bit more patience, but just a little bit more,” he said. “That doesn’t mean days, and I don’t think it quite means weeks, but it doesn’t mean months and months and months.”
Given the mystery surrounding the game’s release window, it should be interesting to see what platforms the game launches for. It’s likely that Elden Ring will end up being a cross-gen release- though of course, if Grubb’s statements are anything to go by, we’ll find out for sure soon enough. Stay tuned for more details.
