Wow... I hope to at least see a new trailer.

"Further" ? Besides not knowing anything about the game since we got a teaser, when have we known about any delays?

We haven’t been told about a previous delay but presumably investors have been.

I'm guessing it's Martin... And Covid like they mentioned.
But mostly Martin.

FromSoft has never needed any help crafting a brilliant narrative told through world engagement, but I do expect a damn good lore, at least.

From what I understand, Martin has been finished with his involvement with ER for some time now.

I did a Twitter sweep of Martin's Twitter. Didn't seen anything about his concluded involvement with the project. Can't seem to find any articles either.

Not saying you're wrong, I legitimately do not know. If his involvement has concluded, that would be surprising.

@DarXyde I've also heard this, my understanding was he was brought on to help write the lore/world-building and that alone which has long-since been completed....the actual in-game assets/development process is what has been held up by the pandemic

Usually From Soft releases their games within a year of the first announcement. That would mean, in my understanding, that the game was very close to being finished when it was announced almost two years ago, which implies the story was complete by then so Martin's involvement had concluded by then. This delay is very uncharacteristic of From as a studio, COVID must have really messed them up. We need to be patient and understanding, they deserve it in my book.

That’s fine. Take as long as you need.
