Elden Ring has officially been delayed, as announced by the official Twitter account this morning. Previously planned to release on January 22, 2022, the game has been delayed a month until February 25, 2022, which is relatively minor in the grand scheme of events.
According to the official statement from From Software, the “depth and strategic freedom of the game exceeded initial expectation.” As such, the development team has more time to finish up and polish the final product.
Elden Ring is an open-world action role-playing game developed in collaboration with renowned Game of Thrones author George R.R. Martin. The game was initially announced at E3 in 2019 and consists of players playing as a Tarnished in the Lands Between to find the Elden Ring.
On the bright side, there will be closed network testing of Elden Ring happening in November to test out the game’s multiplayer component. Specific times were also provided for these upcoming tests. Sign-ups are available now on the official Bandai Namco website. The team from From Software tweeted: “Please accept our sincere apologies for keeping you waiting. Your patience and understanding mean a great deal to us.”
Elden Ring will be releasing on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Windows PC via Steam, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S on February 25, 2022.
