It has been revealed that the hacker collective ALPHV has launched a ransomware attack against Bandai Namco Entertainment. Bandai Namco has neither acknowledged nor disputed these claims, but it is clear that a great deal of sensitive information may now be in the hands of the hackers. This situation sounds a lot like what happened to Capcom a few years back, which led to the early leak of games like Dragon's Dogma 2 on the internet. The name of rumored future Elden Ring downloadable content appears to be among these spoilers.
It took a few days for the details of the Capcom hack to surface online, but it appears that Bandai Namco's intentions for Fiscal Year 2023 have already been made public. The following information may be completely bogus, taking advantage of the prospective hack to leak some fake games, including potential DLC for Elden Ring, or there may be more that might be leaked if Bandai does not come to an arrangement with ALPHV.
There is no way to know for sure how reliable this list is, although things may become clearer in the days ahead. Given the scope of the new game, releasing Elden Ring DLC in Q3 FY2023 is on the later end of FromSoftware's DLC strategy. It might delve into his and Nepheli's past, events happening beyond the Lands Between, and much more besides, and it would seem to have ties to the Badlands, where Godfrey and the Tarnished went after being exiled from the Lands Between. Or maybe these savages travel to the Lands Between after Godfrey's loss, looking for retribution. There's a wide range of potential outcomes, but only time will tell.
Nothing on this list is actually impossible, however some of the Elden Ring items do seem highly improbable. For instance, FromSoftware is rumored to be finishing up production on a game called Armored Core, but releasing it in the first quarter of fiscal year 2023 could seem premature – not impossible, but intriguing. Some of these games have yet to be officially announced, such as Tales of Ascension and Code Vein 2, while others, like Dragon Ball Xenoverse 3, have been mentioned in rumors and leaks.
