These games are like movies. They take a long time to developGeorge RR MartinGeorge RR Martin It is of the opinion that the development of the new thing from the parents of Dark Souls “it goes quite slow”, and it is said by someone who takes his time when writing his books. His statement does not have to be a criticism of FromSoftware’s work, but rather a sample of the burning desire that he has, like many others, to see a game finished in which there is a part of his imagination. “These games are like movies. They take a long time to develop.”
In this sense, Martin has taken the opportunity to clarify its role in production. “I created a fairly detailed scenario for FromSoftware, from which they began to make the game,” he explains in his talk with the WTTW station picked up by Kotaku, adding that he has not had much relationship with the development team for a while. “It has been several years since I last met them, they came periodically to show me some of the monsters that they had drawn. “
Luckily for George RR Martin and those who are so eagerly awaiting its release, the wait for the game is already a matter of months. Elden Ring dated its launch for January 21, 2022 on PC, PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X | S and Xbox One.
