Elden Ring is one of the big exciting mysteries of videogames right now. It’s a collaboration between Dark Souls and Sekiro developer From Software, creator Hidetaka Miyazaki, and Game of Thrones author and serial procrastinator George RR Martin. It was announced as part of Microsoft’s conference at E3 2019 with a cryptic teaser trailer, but otherwise we haven’t seen any of the actual game yet.
Last week, reports suggested that Elden Ring was set to be shown off at Gamescom. The reveal was rumoured to be an extremely ‘behind closed doors’ affair, with footage shown only to assorted gaming press, rather than the members of the public attending the event.
Sadly, it would seem that isn’t the case, and that Elden Ring won’t be available to anyone at the convention. When we reached out for comment on this story, a representative for publisher Bandai Namco said that the company does not comment on any rumour or speculation.
