This morning, From Software and Bandai-Namco provided some small updates on Elden Ring. First and foremost, the release of the game has been pushed back to February 25th. According to the team at From, this is merely to provide more time to polish for release.
ELDEN RING will release on Feb 25, 2022, as the depth & strategic freedom of the game exceeded initial expectations. Thank you for your trust & patience. We look forward to seeing you experience the game in the Closed Network Test in Nov.

While this is slightly disappointing for those heavily anticipating its release, a closed network test was also announced. It will take place in November and you can sign up via the Elden Ring site here.
