Indie developer Team Cherry has announced Hollow Knight: Silksong is delayed once again.
Hollow Knight: Silksong is forgoing its previously planned release in the first half of 2023 for one sometime later this year – across Windows PC (via Steam, GOG, and the Humble Store), Xbox Series X|S, and Nintendo Switch. The game will also be on Xbox Game Pass on day one.
“Hey gang, just a quick update about Silksong. We had planned to release in the 1st half of 2023, but development is still continuing,” Team Cherry marketing manager Matthew Griffin said. “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. Expect more details from us once we get closer to release.”
Here’s a rundown on the 2019-announced game:
