Rumor: George R.R. Martin and FromSoft’s Elden Ring Leaked
It would seem that another one of Bandai Namco’s lineup has been leaked. Elden Ring is the name of the new title being developed by FromSoftware, creator of the original Souls Series, with Dark Souls III being released in March 2016 and Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice in March 2019.
Well it looks like there is more to this new title than meets the eye. As the game will take place in a world created by both George R.R. Martin, writer of A Song of Ice and Fire, and Hidetaka Miyazaki’s combined efforts to. It has been rumored back in May that both of the creators were to work on a new project back in May as R.R. Martin said himself in a blog post, “…consulted on a video game out of Japan.” The game would have been in development for three years in this case as that has also been stated back then.
In this case the game has also been stated to release on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
