It’s no wonder, then, that fans have been asking for updates about the Hollow Knight Silksong. It’s a bit of a mystery why there’s been such a lengthy wait since the first trailer, but there’s always hope that Team Cherry will deliver on its promise to produce another indie masterpiece.
The problem is, though, that it looks like the game will not be released soon, and it couldn’t be released as originally planned in the first half of this year. That’s according to Matthew Griffin, who handles marketing and PR for the team at Team Cherry. In a Twitter post, Griffin explains that the development work on the title is more extensive than they initially expected. As a result, the developers don’t feel comfortable releasing Hollow Knight Silksong within that window.
Griffin doesn’t specifically say that a later release in 2023 isn’t on the table, but he does specify that more details will be revealed as the project gets closer to release. Given the fact that 2023 is already stacked to the rafters with releases such as Starfield, Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, and Bethesda’s Hi-Fi Rush, it might be a good idea for Team Cherry to wait until they feel more comfortable with a release date.
What You Should Know About Hollow Knight Silksong?
What you should know about the new Hollow Knight Silksong is that it will take place in a different kingdom known as Pharloom. The story will focus on Hornet, who was an important character in the original Hollow Knight, but will now be the protagonist of this sequel. This agile warrior is more mobile than the Knight from the previous game, and will be able to use Silk to power abilities.
Hollow Knight Silksong is a sequel that aims to enhance the features that made its predecessor a hit. Expect a greater emphasis on storytelling in both exploration and combat, plus a diverse range of foes, settlements, and bosses to face while progressing through the game.
Regardless of when the sequel eventually comes out, it’s sure to generate plenty of buzz as it will serve as a perfect entry point for players who haven’t yet experienced the original.
It’s an indie classic that will no doubt have a following well into the future, and fans are going to want to make sure the new Hollow Knight delivers on all of its promises. That means it’s important for the team at Team Cherry to take their time and make the best game possible.
