An Elden Ring Mobile Version Is Reportedly In Development By Tencent

The project is progressing slow allegedly.

Story Highlights

  • An Elden Ring mobile port is allegedly in the works by Tencent, as affirmed in a new report by Reuters.
  • The title has been in the brewer for a few years, but progress has supposedly been slow.
  • Tencent wants to make the souls-like a F2P experience with in-app purchases after being inspired by Genshin Impact.

Elden Ring is among the most successful ventures by FromSoftware that is available on all major platforms except mobile that is. However, that could be changing pretty soon in the future. A new report by Reuters claims that a mobile port for the RPG is seemingly in development by Tencent. A team of “a few dozen people” was allegedly making a prototype after a license was secured two years ago, only a few months after it came out.

Elden Ring is among the most successful RPGs to ever release worldwide.

The report clarifies that it is an attempt by Tencent to add variety to its roster of titles. However, it intends to bring massive changes to the Elden Ring mobile port. The publisher has been inspired by Genshin Impact. So, it wants to add in-app purchases and make it a free-to-play experience. Most popular mobile games use a similar formula, but the community is not too happy about it. 

It was also clarified that the progress has been quite slow so far. All in all, we suggest taking the rumors with a grain of salt. It is possible that the development for the mobile version has been shelved or significantly slowed down by Tencent. We may hear more from the publisher in the near future.

While the new mobile version rumor has caused a tremendous uproar, the other part of the community is still waiting for the Shadow of the Erdtree DLC. A slew of reports have suggested that it is coming sooner than we expect. However, the FromSoftware producer Yasuhiro Kitao iterated that the expansion was “still a little ways off” but “progressing well” when he was asked in December last year about it.

Elden Ring came out on February 25, 2022, for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series S|X, and PC. It was hailed as the Game of the Year in 2022 after fierce competition, selling over 20 million copies worldwide in a mere year. eXputer’s Abdul Haddi has reviewed the RPG with an ideal 5/5 score. It earned praise for its fun yet tough combat mechanics, fascinating visuals, and addictive boss fights.
