"Elden Ring was originally slated for release in January of this year, and it has been pushed back once to February," said FromSoftware producer Yasuhiro Kitao during the aforementioned broadcast. "But please be assured, the title will be ready for sale on February 25th. The master version has already been submitted, and right now, the team is working on a day one patch, to make sure everything in the game is just so."

You can watch the mention of the Day One patch at the end of this video from the Taipei Game Show 2022:

It's fairly standard for big video game releases to have a "day one patch" to ensure that a definitive version is sent off to be manufactured and distributed while still being able to improve on the video game.

When asked if the development of Elden Ring was going smoothly, FromSoftware's Yasuhiro Kitao replied, “It is. Elden Ring was originally slated for release in January of this year, and it has been pushed back once to February. But please be assured, the title will be ready for sale on February 25. The master version has already been submitted, and right now, the team is working on a day one patch to make sure everything in the game is just so.”
