The latest financial earnings presentation for Kadokawa reveals Elden Ring’s upcoming DLC Shadow of the Erdtree is “proceeding smoothly”.
Elden Ring: Shadow of the Erdtree Gets Small Development Update
It’s been quite a few months since there has been any update on the next major content update for Elden Ring under the expansion Shadow of the Erdtree. It was back in February this year when the DLC was revealed rather quietly on Twitter with a single screenshot but little else in terms of scope, locations, enemies, weapons, story or time frame for when it will be released.
However, in the recent financial earning presentation from the parent company Kadokawa Corporation, there is a slight update referring to the elusive expansion. On slide four of the document, there is one line that shares that development for Shadow of the Erdtree is “proceeding smoothly”. Unfortunately, it doesn’t give any hints as to when the DLC will be released but does give hope that things are progressing well.
Doubling down on the fact there has been no launch date announcement since the DLC reveal, a further FAQ shut down the question of when it will be released with that they are “currently working hard on the development” but they have no time frame at this moment.
Fans of the game have been waiting with bated breath for any inkling of news of an upcoming DLC. This is at least a mention of what is happening with the expansion. Previously Elden Ring received a PVP arena-based DLC called the Colosseum adding up to 6 player matches in Limgrave, Caelid and Leyndell, Royal Capital.
Other details in the report share that Elden Ring continued to have sales in the second quarter of the fiscal year. But due to the release of FromSoftware’s latest tile Armored Core VI Fire of Rubicon, sales have slowed. However, repeat sales still remained strong. The year is not over yet and we still have The Game Awards 2023 where updates and game announcements are made. But as for the DLC? We’ll have to wait and see.
