Hollow Knight: Silksong Delayed to Unknown Release Date

Team Cherry’s Hollow Knight: Silksong has been delayed yet again, much to the disappointment of fans eagerly anticipating its release. The highly anticipated follow-up to 2017’s Hollow Knight was initially slated for launch in 2020, before being pushed back to the first half of 2023.

A Delay for Development

Team Cherry marketing and publishing representative Matthew Griffin took to Twitter to address the delay: “We had planned to release in the 1st half of 2023, but development is still continuing. We’re excited by how the game is shaping up, and it’s gotten quite big, so we want to take the time to make the game as good as we can.”

Quality Takes Time

While fans may be disappointed by the delay, Griffin reassured them that the team’s priority is to deliver a game that meets their exacting standards: “We want to take the time to make the game as good as we can.”

Given the enthusiastic reaction to the gameplay trailer released in 2022, it’s clear that expectations are high for Silksong. While the delay is undoubtedly a disappointment for fans, it’s also a testament to Team Cherry’s commitment to delivering a high-quality gaming experience.

From Hornet’s Perspective

Hollow Knight: Silksong follows the journey of Hornet, a fan favorite NPC in the original game. As the princess-protector of Hallownest, Hornet is no stranger to dangerous situations. Still, her journey in Silksong is an entirely new adventure, bringing with it an array of challenges and obstacles to overcome.

Despite the delay, fans have every reason to be excited about the upcoming title. The studio has already teased gameplay, and reports suggest that Silksong will be available across all consoles, PC, and Mac.

The Journey So Far

The Silksong reveal came as a surprise to fans back in 2019, with Team Cherry keeping quiet throughout much of the game’s development. But with each new reveal, excitement for the game has continued to grow.

The gameplay trailer shown at Microsoft’s Xbox & Bethesda Games Showcase in 2022 was the first real look fans got at what they could expect from Silksong. Alongside this, it was also announced that the game would hit Xbox Game Pass on day one.

Sony has also confirmed that Silksong will be available to play on PlayStation consoles, much to the delight of fans who were unsure if the game would be console exclusive.

A Hop, Skip, and a Jump from Release?

The delay has cast some doubt on Silksong’s release date, with fans now speculating that it could be as late as 2024 before the game hits the market. Despite this, Team Cherry has remained tight-lipped about any specifics regarding the release window, leaving fans to wait on further news with bated breath.

In the meantime, however, the delay has provided the studio with an opportunity to continue refining the game and ensuring that it meets their high standards. For fans of the original game, the wait for Silksong may be difficult, but the prospect of a game that exceeds all expectations is certainly worth it.

The Long-Awaited Journey

As the wait for Silksong continues, fans of Hollow Knight can take comfort in the knowledge that the upcoming title promises to deliver an entirely new adventure from Hornet’s perspective. While the release date remains a mystery, one thing is for sure: when Silksong finally lands, it will be worth the wait.
