New Elden Ring leaks spell bad news for fans dying to know more

Elden Ring, Elden Ring, Elden Ring... It's the mysterious game from Bandai Namco that keeps on (not) giving. We don't really know too much about the upcoming fantasy game that has everyone so excited but there have been a couple of new leaks to talk about.

One of them has already been proven fake, though.

LATEST - New Elden Ring Leaks

At the moment, there are two Elden Ring leaks doing the rounds online. One of those has already been proven wrong, though, and the other is a little bit of bad news if you're a fan.

Firstly, there were rumours that some stolen footage showcasing a teaser for Elden Ring was being shared online. Sadly (or not sadly), this isn't real footage and a few eagle-eyed Redditors have found the source of the footage on ArtStation.

It might look like something we'd see from Elden Ring, but for now, there's still no additional footage out there.

Secondly, though, we have a rumoured release date.

A recent report from Kadokawa Corp has revealed that Elden Ring isn't going to be available until around Spring 2022. Apparently, an internal date has been set as "April 2022 or beyond."

Kadokawa Corp is one of the companies working on the game, so you'd like to think a source from there would have some legitimacy. Bandai Namco is going to be at E3 2021 this year if everything goes to plan. Could we finally get an updated trailer then? Three to four years between announcement and release isn't even that long in the grand scheme of things.

Old Leaked Trailer Footage

There are quite a few snippets of supposed Elden Ring footage out there now, but is any of it real?

Below, we have an example of one snippet that shows a player using some magic ability to hit a dragon overhead:

In another clip from an Elden Ring-focused fan account, we see a snippet of footage that clearly shows some sort of "Confidential" watermarking:

Although it all could be legit, a lot of people are questioning its authenticity due to the low quality of what is available.

This has, as these things often do, led to many making jokes and memes about the footage and how it appears decades old.

Is A Real Trailer Coming?

Despite the fact that there is an upcoming Microsoft event and many are speculating Elden Ring will be shown in a little more detail during this, it doesn't seem likely.

To reinforce this, after Microsoft's March 23rd stream was leaked and unveiled, there were rumours that Elden Ring could make an appearance.

Microsoft's Xbox Games Marketing GM Aaron Greenburg quickly took to Twitter to respond to these queries with the statement below:

This wouldn't be the first time an insider has said "no" to something when it, in actuality, is true. However, it does seem as though Greenburg is providing genuine information.

That being said, the leak could force Bandai Namco to make an announcement if they submit to the questions they are undoubtedly facing.

Industry insiders are suggesting that some form of Elden Ring trailer is making the rounds, but there are doubts that a reveal is coming.

That isn't to say it is impossible, as there appears to be a clear division amongst those supposedly "in the know" with some expecting more information soon.

If Elden Ring is delayed, then an announcement from Bandai Namco seems more likely than a gameplay trailer.
