We’ll wait a while Hollow Knight: Silksong. The years-in-the-making sequel to the excellent Hollow Knight was due to release within 12 months of the Xbox June 2022 showcase, but a rep for the game said Tuesday night that the title will miss that release window.
“We planned to release in the first half of 2023, but development is still ongoing,” said Matthew Griffin, who works on marketing and publishing for the game. posted on Twitter. “We’re excited about how the game is developing and it’s gotten quite big, so we want to take the time to make the game the best it can be. Expect more details from us as we get closer to release.”
Silk songfeaturing the Hornet character Hollow Knightwas originally set Hollow Knight DLC, but developer Team Cherry announced the game would be a “full-scale sequel” in 2019. Nintendo showed off some gameplay during E3 2019, but we didn’t hear much from developers Team Cherry for a few years after that. We got a new trailer and that now-broken release window at the Xbox show in June, and in September Sony announced the game would be coming to PlayStation.
There’s a silver lining to the delay: now that Silk song comes out later than planned, I don’t have to worry about squeezing it next to it Tears of the Kingdom.
