Elden Ring‘s official Twitter account revealed today that FromSoftware’s latest action RPG is now coming out on February 25, 2022.

This delay’s Elden Ring’s launch by about a month. The game was supposed to debut on January 21. It’ll be available on PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X/S, and PC.

Honestly, this isn’t a big surprise. As we’ve neared the end of the year, fans started to become concerned with how little information or footage we were seeing about Elden Ring. If anything, it’s surprising that the delay is so small.

The announcement of the delay did note that a “closed network test” will be available in November, so some players will get to try the game before year’s end.

FromSoftware has become a popular developer thanks to its Souls series, which emphasize challenging combat and deep character progression in thematic worlds. Its games, including Dark Souls, Bloodbourne, and Sekiro, have helped establish the Souls-like as a genre. Elden Ring also has involvement from Game of Thrones author George R. R. Martin, which has only helped increase anticipation.
