Since its release last month, Elden Ring has sold 12 million copies worldwide. Elden Ring is going to be a franchise, with FromSoftware telling fans to look forward to more of the game.

Much effort was put into creatingELDEN RING so that we could exceed the expectations of our fans worldwide. The president and CEO of the game's publisher said that they will continue to expand the brand beyond the game.

It's easy to imagine building on FromSoftware's famously opaque storylines in more traditional narrative formats like comics, books, or even a TV series.

With the popularity of video game adaptation and the involvement of George R.R. Martin, there are plenty of avenues that FromSoftware could take in expanding its latest game.

FromSoftware's games are famous for doing much of their story in the margins of titles, allowing players to explore the history and meaning of the events that shaped the worlds of each title on their own. The open-world scale of the Lands Between means that there is even more space for FromSoftware to fill in the gaps with additional media down the line.
