From Software recently released update 1.05 for Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, which introduced brand new cosmetic items for the Wolf along with the new gauntlet mode. The developer also took to Twitter to thank fans for playing Sekiro and for showing interest in Elden Ring.

That last time we heard anything about Elden Ring was earlier this year with From Software confirming that the game would be showcased at Taipei Game Show. However, due to the ongoing pandemic, the show was postponed indefinitely. Since then, From Software has maintained silence on Elden Ring, until recently when the developer tweeted, "We also greatly appreciate all the enthusiasm and support shown for "Elden Ring", our next Dark Fantasy Action RPG. We hope you look forward to it."

Since there's not much that fans know about Elden Ring, all kinds of speculation has started to surface on the internet. All that we know about Elden Ring is that the game takes inspiration from Norse mythology and will feature dark fantasy lore similar to previous Soulsborne games.

Elden Ring is a highly anticipated game among gamers, and it's not just because it's being developed by From Software. The hype is also largely because the developer has collaborated with Game of Thrones author George R.R. Martin in designing the game's story.

Moreover, with the massive success of Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, From Software will likely want to ensure that Elden Ring delivers the quality that fans are now expecting from the developer.

Although From Software hasn't confirmed anything regarding Elden Ring's development progress, it's still good to know that the game is still in the works and has not been canceled, as some fans were believing.

While some leaks suggested that Elden Ring would release before 2020, it seems highly unlikely that the game will launch anytime before 2021, as From Software hasn't shared anything about the game, such as gameplay trailers or in-engine footage.

Elden Ring is currently in development.
