There has been speculation floating around about an Xbox event, especially in relation to a reveal of From Software’s Elden Ring.
After growing on social media, it was also reported as possibly credible by a variety of media outlets.
Turns out that said speculation was false. Xbox Games Marketing general manager Aaron Greenberg took to Twitter to debunk the rumors.
“Just to set expectations: this is not happening. There are always things we have in the works, but nothing coming soon that would feature game announcements or world premieres like this.”
This doesn’t mean that no event is coming, but whether it is or it isn’t, we shouldn’t expect world premieres of this kind of magnitude.
Of course, Twinfinite opted not to report on the rumors and speculation when they surfaced.
As usual, this kind of speculation is very hit and miss, and should always be taken with a large grain of salt, regardless of its source.
Elden Ring has been announced at E3 2019 during Microsoft’s press briefing, but actual news about it has been very space since, excluding the confirmation of its composer last year.
It’s not unlikely that the times are mature for a new reveal, but we should likely wait for something official before we build expectations.
As soon as said official information is revealed, you’ll be able to read it here for sure.
