Anyone remember the Elden Ring? Yeah, the upcoming game by Dark Souls and Sekiro developers. FromSoftware has been tight-lipped about their latest title. We only saw an announcement trailer back in E3 2019. After that, there has not been a single piece of new information about it.

A previous rumor suggested that the game has been in development for a few years now. If the latest rumors by Francesco Fossetti is to be believed, then the game release date might be closer than thought. According to him, Elden Ring is currently in a polishing state. It means that the content is done, and the team is currently removing bugs and improving the overall state of the game.

Francesco Fossetti has been reliable in the past. He even debunked the previous rumor of Elden Ring making an appearance in The Game Awards 2020. However, it’s still a rumor so take it with a grain of salt.

This is not the first rumor that suggested the end of the game’s development. Another well-known Souls leaker, Lance McDonald, also revealed that the game development is almost finished. This is further confirmed by Xbox Boss Head Phil Spencer, who claimed that he has played the game. Spencer called Elden Ring the most ambitious game by Hidetaka Miyazaki, who was also behind the Dark Souls franchise, Sekiro, and Bloodborne.

So, what makes Elden Ring different from other Miyazaki games? It's the game’s story written by the acclaimed writer George R. R. Martin. Martin is the same person behind the A Song of Ice and Fire book series. The famous show Game of Thrones is based on those books.

We don’t know when exactly Elden Ring will release. But we do know that it will launch on PC, PS4, and Xbox One. It’s also safe to assume that the next-gen port for both consoles will be available.

So, what do you think? Are you excited about Elden Ring? Do you think the game will be worth the hype? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section below.
