An image circulating social media Tuesday has seemingly leaked the title and release date for FromSoftware's first piece of Elden Ring DLC.

According to the supposed leaked image, the DLC is called Elden Ring: Barbarians of the Badlands.

Elden Ring: Barbarians of the Badlands Release Date Information

As shown in the image, Elden Ring: Barbarians of the Badlands is seemingly set to be release in Q3 of Bandai Namco's 2023 fiscal year.

Ultimately, however, this leak doesn't quite seem to pass the smell test for most plugged into Bandai Namco news.

First off, the title "Barbarians of the Badlands" doesn't exactly sound like something FromSoftware would come up with to some.

Additionally, as pointed out by DualShockers as well as those on ResetEra, even the other "unannounced" titles presented in the image appear to be fabricated.

While a new Armored Core title from FromSoftware could certainly be a possibility, it is odd that a RPG Cyber Sleuth sequel is shown despite Bandai Namco reportedly already confirming recently that the next Digimon title will be a story game.

Additionally, the logos for "Tekken 8" and "Dragon Ball Fighter Z Super" have been said to be fake altogether.

Lastly, as tweeted by @hy_plus, who was one person who shared the image, it seems they ended up deleting their post soon after as "that picture actually spread the unreliable news that was circulating in China."

Of course, as with all leaks and rumors, feel free to take this information with a grain of salt until it's confirmed by FromSoftware.
