Elden Ring's Release Window Might Have Been Accidentally Revealed

Elden Ring's Release Window Might Have Been Accidentally Revealed

We could be playing From Software's next game sooner than you think.

There's precious little information to go on about From Software's mysterious Elden Ring right now. But if new information is correct, we could be playing the game by Summer 2020.

On From Software's website, you can apply to receive a New Years greeting card from the developer. You can choose between the theme of Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, Metal Wolf Chaos XD, or Elden Ring for your card. From Software lists the release window of the latter game as "June."

It's a bit puzzling that From Software would accidentally reveal the release window for their upcoming game through a greetings card application. We've reached out to publisher Bandai Namco for clarification on information, and we'll update this post if we hear anything else.

We have actually gone through the process of receiving one of the New Years greetings cards through From Software's website, and an Elden Ring-themed one at that. Unfortunately the card itself doesn't shed any light on the June release window.

Right now, there's few details about Elden Ring. We know that it's a collaboration between From Software and Game of Thrones author George R. R. Martin, although we don't quite know the degree of the collaboration. Elden Ring is an entirely open world game, the first by From Software, and it's more of a traditional RPG than any game the studio has made before. Whenever Elden Ring does release, it'll be launching on PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
