Kadokawa Corp, a group of which FromSoftware is a part, has revealed how many of its larger projects have been postponed due to the slowdown in construction due to COVID-19. Needless to say, among these could very well be Elden Ring, the highly anticipated game from Hidetaka Miyazaki, creator of Dark Souls and Bloodborne.
According to the company’s latest sales forecasts, the forecasts will go down until March 2022. This means, in all likelihood, that no blockbuster will hit the market by that date.
Most likely, we may not see Elden Ring before April 2022. In the best case. A surprise? Maybe.
But it is equally true that of Elden Ring we have not seen anything to date, and expecting a full game soon was pure utopia.
Analyst Daniel Ahmad commented on this that according to him, this information would not automatically confirm a postponement of the highly anticipated souls-like to next year.
FromSoftware, for example, may not have considered it due to the many doubts about its release date. At the same time, experts agree that there are few interpretations of the information published by Kadokawa. And indeed, they praise her for the courage of being so open with investors and the public. In short, the wait towards Elden Ring could still be long. Let’s arm ourselves with good patience and cross our fingers.
