Elden Ring Delay New Release Date

Just when you thought February 2022 couldn't get any busier for new game releases, Elden Ring gets delayed from its original 21st January date to the 25th February. At just over a month's delay, it's certainly not the end of the world — but we're left wondering whether Elden Ring and other February 2022 releases like Horizon Forbidden West, Dying Light 2, and the new Saints Row will actually stick to their guns.

So what's the reason for the delay? Well, developer From Software writes: "The depth & strategic freedom of the game exceeded initial expectations. Thank you for your trust & patience."

Fortunately, it won't be long until we're besieged with new Elden Ring info, as the studio has confirmed that a closed beta test will begin this November. You can read more about that through this link.

Are you surprised to see Elden Ring get hit with another delay? Keep dreaming of that intricate open world in the comments section below.
