Elden Ring Delayed

BANDAI NAMCO announces a delay to Elden Ring, saying it is now due on February 25th. The action/RPG collaboration from FromSoftware and George R.R. Martin had been expected about a month before that, but "it has been decided to extend the development time for final adjustments." This involves a further round of network testing, but this will just involve the console editions. Here's a new Closed Network Test Announcement Trailer and here's word:
Selected fans will be able to experience the opening hours of ELDEN RING to get a hands-on glimpse at what the full game will have to offer while assisting the development team in testing the game’s online servers ahead of its new release date of February 25, 2022. The depth of the game and the degree of freedom in strategy exceeded the initial expectations, hence it has been decided to extend the development time for final adjustments.

The ELDEN RING Closed Network Test will be playable throughout the weekend of November 12-14 for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S during the following time blocks:

  • November 12: 3:00 A.M. to 6:00 A.M. PST
