We’ve known for a bit now that George R.R. Martin was working on a game over in Japan, but a security flaw on the Bandai Namco website could have leaked the upcoming title, as well as more information about it when assets were uploaded early Friday, June 7.
According to the information that was scraped off the website before the security flaw was fixed, FromSoftware’s upcoming game is called Elden Ring, and it’s a collaboration between well-known game director Hidetaka Miyazaki—the creator of the Dark Souls video game series—and George R.R. Martin, creator of the well-known and highly-praised novel series, A Song of Ice and Fire. Of course, not much is known about the game just yet, but Gematsu did share snippets that were pulled from the page about the game.
The page read, “Elden Ring, developed by FromSoftware, Inc. and Bandai Namco Entertainment Inc., is a fantasy action-RPG adventure set within a world created by Hidetaka Miyazaki—creator of the influential Dark Souls video game series; and George R.R. Martin—author of The New York Times best-selling fantasy series, A Song of Ice and Fire. Danger and discovery lurk around every corner in FromSoftware’s largest game to-date.
Hidetaka Miyazaki, President and Game Director of FromSoftware Inc. known for directing critically acclaimed games in beloved franchises including Armored Core, Dark Souls, and Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice.
George R.R. Martin is the #1 New York Times bestselling author of many novels, including the acclaimed series A Song of Ice and Fire – A Game of Thrones, A Clash of Kings, A Storm of Swords, A Feast For Crows, and A Dance with Dragons. As a writer-producer, he has worked on The Twilight Zone, Beauty and the Beast, and various feature films and pilots that were never made.”
We expect we’ll probably hear more about this upcoming game officially when the Microsoft Xbox presser kicks off tomorrow, signifying the first official day of E3 press conferences. You can, of course, return to our E3 2019 hub for more news about other announcements and games, and we’ll be sure to keep an eye out for more news about FromSoftware’s upcoming game.
