Hollow Knight: Silksong will not be releasing in the first half of 2023 as the developers planned due to the game's scope, which now requires more development time.
One of the most anticipated titles of 2023, Hollow Knight: Silksong has been officially delayed, the developer Team Cherry Games announced on Twitter. The game was initially planned to launch in the first half of 2023, the devs say, but due to the increased size of the game, the release had to be delayed.
The studio did not mention the new release date which could hint at a longer delay. They did, however, state that more details will be shared as we get closer the launch.
Fans of this wonderful metroidvania will certainly be disappointed with the news but a delay is certainly always a better decision than releasing an incomplete and broken game. We doubt anyone would want that for Silksong.
Here's the message from Hollow Knight: Silksong developers Team Cherry Games:
"Hey gang, just a quick update about Silksong. 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. Expect more details from us once we get closer to release."
Silksong was intially announced four years ago so it's safe to say that it's been a long wait for this highly-anticiapted sequel of the criticially acclaimed Hollow Knight.
We expect to see more of Hollow Knight: Silksong at the upcoming Xbox Games Showcase, which airs on June 11. A new gameplay trailer would certainly be keep the hype train at full speeds, no doubt about it.
Hollow Knight: Silksong is officially coming to PC , PlayStation 4 , PlayStation 5 , Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S.
