Elden Ring Rumoredly Coming in 2020

NeoGaf user claims Elden Ring to release in late 2020 with next-gen console versions coming as well.

A new entry into "Soulsborne" genre, upcoming action role-playing game Elden Ring from developer From Software and publisher Bandai Namco Entertainment was previously rumored to be showcased at Taipei Game Show 2020.

Due to a worldwide COVID-19 outbreak, many events were cancelled and Taipei Game Show joined that list as well. According to a NeoGAF user, From Software is planning to release Elden Ring in 2020 and much sooner than expected.

NeoGAF user Arctos claimed to receive this information directly from a former employee of Bandai Namco that states a possible 2020 release even though no gameplay or story premise is shared of upcoming anticipated ARPG title yet.

According to sources, development process was halted by recent global crisis and a previously planned release window for summer 2020 had to move to Q3 of current fiscal year to let dev team work on Elden Ring next-gen ports.

Currently looking forward to an October-December 2020 launch window, the game is now in a playable state in terms of content. From Software is busy optimizing and polishing it now while readying PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X ports.

Players shouldn't expect anything other than high resolutions and increased frame-rates from updated version on next-gen consoles. Also, Sony has reportedly tried to make a PS5 timed exclusive deal for the game but was unsuccessful.

It took Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice a year and a half to meet its schedule following initial announcement at E3 2018 and therefore, December 2020 seems like a possible fit to match that pattern for next From Software release.

Elden Ring has yet to receive a confirmed release date and is planned to launch on PC via Steam, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. An official reveal by From Software may feature on a future episode of Summer Game Fest 2020 very soon.

The Walking Dead: A Fatal Frontier Reportedly in Works

A leaker on Reddit reveals details of alleged The Walking Dead: A Fatal Frontier by reformed Telltale Games.

Halfway though development of episodic adventure title The Walking Dead: The Final Season, developer/publisher Telltale Games were shut down in 2018 and Skybound Entertainment took over to complete Clementine's journey.

Right after their assets were acquired by LCG Entertainment in August 2019, a leaker with ties to reformed Telltale Games recently claims Season 5 of The Walking Dead series titled The Walking Dead: A Fatal Frontier is in works.

An alleged Telltale insider on Reddit has posted about Tales from the Borderlands Redux lately that is going to be revealed soon. Same leaker also stated that a tech demo for The Wolf Among Us 2 will be premiered via Summer Game Fest.

The Walking Dead is renewed for a fifth season despite wrapping everything up in its fourth and The Final Season. Its subtitle "A Fatal Frontier" may eventually change, which will take cues from events of Season Three: A New Frontier.

Although the game will be on same length on past releases, TWD will not continue its episodic format and will move to survival horror genre. There are enough dialogue choices but they won't be focused entirely on narrative direction.

Clementine's former companion and second playable character Javier Garcia from Season Three will make his return. Community of Richmond, Virginia has fallen and almost everything else from "A New Frontier" is scrapped except for Javier.

Every survivor that has somehow managed to live until this point since Season Three will all die when falls. Kenny is joining as a returning character, implying developers will force retconning him into story regardless of past choices.

Given how he was shot earlier in one choice and never put down to prevent reanimation, his return is not completely impossible. Kenny and Javier will even cross paths at some point when both of them are out looking for Clementine.

Former members of New Frontier group were apparently behind the fall of Richmond are now after Javier and Kenny. In terms of gameplay, A Fatal Frontier took primary inspiration from games like Resident Evil and The Evil Within 2.

IP for The Walking Dead currently belongs to Skybound following a sudden closure of Telltale Games back in 2018. LCG Entertainment bought all company assets of Telltale and maybe preparing to make a comeback through "A Fatal Frontier".

RELATED: Mafia Trilogy Remaster Revealed

Whether or not Skybound Entertainment is interested to explore further into TWD universe is still unclear. Since there is no concrete evidence of any of these alleged leaks to be true, fans would be wise to take everything with a grain of salt.

If information from this leak turns out to be true then Skybound is probably breaking usual episodic nature of Telltale Games titles. The Walking Dead: A Fatal Frontier is rumored to debut at PC Game Show as Epic Games Store-exclusive.

Through a livestream, developer/publisher Ubisoft has revealed latest installment of Assassin's Creed action-adventure stealth game series, Assassin's Creed Valhalla in April but other than a holiday 2020 window, there is no launch date.

Recently, a release date accidentally added to product listing page of Amazon Italy was spotted by Reddit user AssassinsCrypt and managed to take a screenshot as well where it shows that AC Valhalla is set to arrive on October 15, 2020.

Since Valhalla is slated to come out in holiday 2020, an October release date on Amazon placeholder seems very plausible. Given current global situation with COVID-19 pandemic, Ubisoft can always move that date up if they have to.

Assassin's Creed Valhalla is currently set to launch on alleged release date of October 15, 2020 for Google Stadia, PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X, supporting Smart Delivery feature for Microsoft consoles.

With latest release of Resident Evil 3 Remake last month, 3 SKU is already wrapped as it was launched for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One platforms, which leaves 10 more slots left for upcoming future titles that are yet to be revealed.

Given how next Resident Evil mainline entry is apparently falling into same early year release window like recent remakes from last two years, Capcom may end up launching Resident Evil 8 for PC and next-gen consoles within March 2021.

However, there is another rumor of a Resident Evil 4 Remake being in works by a new studio, M-Two with a set release window of 2022. If that is true, Capcom is almost certainly aiming for releasing Resident Evil titles on annual basis.
