We do not know when Elden Ring will probably be launched, however it doesn’t appear to be that’s going to be anytime quickly.

Sadly for everybody, it appears like this may proceed to be the case for the foreseeable future. Kadokawa Corp., the dad or mum firm of developer FromSoftware, has revealed its earnings forecast for the total fiscal 12 months, ending March 31, 2022.

In its FY2022 forecast [PDF] (through TweakTown), Kadokawa reveals that it’s anticipating low earnings from its sport division, round a 15% drop in web gross sales, and a whopping 52% in earnings. Certainly, the corporate’s total forecast for FY2022 could be seen as conservative, because the uncertainty across the impression of the coronavirus continues to hold over its divisions, together with sport growth.

Kadokawa has investments in three sport studios, together with FromSoftware. Whereas Elden Ring will get talked about within the report, it’s solely as an example how large of a challenge it’s for the studio, and the way a lot anticipated it’s worldwide. No specifics in regards to the challenge itself had been made, however it’s honest to say that Elden Ring wouldn’t be out earlier than the top of March subsequent 12 months.

A report from earlier this 12 months revealed that the sport’s growth was closely impacted by the pandemic, suggesting that it gained’t be launched this 12 months. With in the present day’s revelation, many will probably be disenchanted to additionally be taught that it might not be out within the first quarter of subsequent 12 months, although there’s each probability, after all, a later launch in 2022 is deliberate.

Ove the weekend, just a few blurry seconds of an Elden Ring trailer appeared on-line. It’s not clear whether or not they originate from March’s leaked trailer, or a brand new one. However, we could also be getting nearer to the sport’s correct reveal, however we might solely hope.
