For months there have been rumors that Dark Souls developers FromSoftware was working with fantasy author George R.R. Martin on a video game. Today, before Microsoft's press conference, that game has supposedly leaked.
Titled Elden Ring, the game is a new IP from Dark Souls director Hidetaka Miyazaki and Game of Thrones author George R. R. Martin. A logo for Elden Ring has also been posted online by several sources, including video game analyst Daniel Ahmad.
Not much is known about Elden Ring other than it is a fantasy action-RPG coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. Without any other information to go on, we can only imagine this is a game that merges the action-RPG gameplay of the Dark Souls series, with storytelling from Miyazaki and Martin. Elden Ring was reportedly set to be revealed at Microsoft's E3 2019 press conference.
Rumors of a FromSoft and Martin collaboration have been steadily gaining traction since earlier this year. Martin himself alluded to working on a video game with a Japanese developer in one of his recent blogs. However, as far as rumors go, a video game from George R. R. Martin developed by From Software is as close to wish fulfillment territory as you can get.
But it appears those rumors could be true. We'll have to wait until Microsoft's E3 2019 press conference for the official reveal. But along with today's earlier leaks for Ninja Theory's Bleeding Edge and Bandai Namco's Tales of Arise, this has been a pretty leaky show for Xbox.
