Elden Ring – the highly anticipated upcoming RPG from Game of Thrones creator George RR Martin and Dark Souls mastermind Hidetaka Miyazaki – has been delayed for a month. The release date for Bandai Namco’s high profile new IP was originally slated for January 21, 2022. Today, however, the Elden Ring Twitter announced that the RPG will be released on February 25, 2022.

The Elden Ring Twitter account posted: “Important Notice: ELDEN RING will be released on February 25, 2022, as the depth and strategic freedom of the game exceeded initial expectations. Thank you for your trust and patience. We look forward to bringing you the experience of the game in the Closed Network Test in November.

“The #ELDENRING Team”.

In a blog post Bandai Namco said the delay would allow more development time for “final adjustments”.

The publisher also announced a closed network test for PlayStation and Xbox consoles in November.

Bandai Namco said: “ELDEN RING™, the grand fantasy action RPG developed by FromSoftware Inc. and produced by BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment Inc. will be playable in a Closed Network Test scheduled for November 12.

Selected fans will be able to experience the opening hours of the highly anticipated title to get a hands-on look at what the full game has to offer, while helping the development team test the game’s online servers ahead of its release date.

“The depth of the game and the degree of freedom in strategy exceeded initial expectations, so it was decided to extend the development time for the final adjustments and move the release date to February 25, 2022.”
