Earlier this month, a new Elden Ring trailer leaked, further giving fire to the rumors that a new reveal was on the way this month. Now, a new report suggests that the rumored reveal for Elden Ring is not happening due to said leak.
In a new video, VentureBeat journalist Jeff Grubb suggests that the rumored March reveal is no longer happening because of the earlier leak. In an earlier video for GamesBeat Decides, a “combination of sources” told Grubb that an Elden Ring showcase of some kind would be happening by the end of March. He was cautious about stating that the “end of March” timeline was not a set date and could change at any time. That was a pretty safe call to make because, in his latest video, the situation has reportedly changed due to the trailer leak.
While a reveal is happening (it has to at some point, right, we didn’t just collectively imagine this game was real?), his latest video on his personal channel linked here, Grubb talks about a push back in plans for the trailer’s official debut. While the latest possibility may disappointing for some, it shouldn’t be that much longer for a larger trailer reveal if one was already planned for this month. With the rumored Microsoft showcase allegedly happening later this month, the road to E3 is getting ready to kick off. That means months of new announcements and reveals are imminent, including more on the elusive Elden Ring.
While we didn’t share the trailer that leaked itself, we did talk about the latest leak. Both with the fact that it happened and a deeper dive into what was shared, we — like many others — couldn’t wait for the chance to talk more about the upcoming FromSoftware game. Our own Dan Tack also dove a little deeper into the latest look, dissecting the grainy footage to talk more about the open-world, horse riding, and more. If you’re interested, you can find his analysis right here.
It’s a little odd that a leak would push back a trailer reveal. Usually, when this happens (not all of the time, but often enough), studios often decide to push forward with a planned reveal. In some cases, the timeline can even be bumped up. Still, hopefully, this means that something more official will be on the way soon, and we can see more about this game beyond a shoddy cell phone video.
Assuming there is no new Elden Ring news this month, what are you hoping to see from the studio about the upcoming game? Any rumored features you’re hoping beyond hope are real? Has anything shared thus far have you a little worried? Sound off with your thoughts in the comment section below!
