Update: Reported Gameplay Leak From Elden Ring Confirmed To Be Fake

Update: As spotted on Reddit, the leaked six seconds of footage has been confirmed as fake. That 3D environmental work comes courtesy of ArtStation user Jack Phan, and you can find more of their work here.

Original: New information from FromSoftware's parent company has suggested that the Elden Ring release could come before April 2022.

Released by Kadokawa Corporation as a part of their latest financial results (Spotted by @Okami13_ on Twitter), they suggest that the game is a priority title for the company and that it is planned for release during the current fiscal year, which ends at the end of March 2022.

On top of that, a new six-second gameplay clip has leaked online via 4Chan (picked up by VGC) and features the same watermark for internal Bandai Namco use as appeared in the previously leaked gameplay.

This new gameplay showcases a few of the game's environments including a large open hall with a circular roof and a hall with large statues and a number of stained glass windows.

This comes as fans expect FromSoftware to showcase the game at E3 2021 with a gameplay trailer and first-look at the world Hidetaka Miyazaki and George R. R. Martin have crafted.

The most likely stage for this showcase of the game would be the Xbox show, where Elden Ring was originally revealed, or at Bandai Namco's own show, which it might hold after a trademark for Bandai Namco Next emerged earlier this year.

This news also comes after a possible leak suggests that Elden Ring's gameplay reveal will come on June 14. Either way, it seems like we will hear some news sooner rather than later.
