Don’t expect any news from not this year’s E3
Hollow Knight: Silksongthe long-awaited sequel to the beloved 2017 indie hit Hollow Knight, won’t make it in the first half of 2023 (hardly surprising at this point, since we’re already in May). This was announced by Matthew Griffin of the development team Team Cherry on Twitter‘, by simply saying that ‘development is still ongoing’, and refusing to give an expected release period for the game.
In reality, silksong It did not have an official release date. But it appeared in trailer form during Microsoft’s June 2022 presentation, which purportedly only shows games that will be shown in the next 12 months. (silksong She’s not the only victim from this show who has turned up, either starfieldAnd Forza Motorsportand several other games that have been delayed to late 2023 and beyond.)
“We had planned a release in the first half of 2023, but development is still ongoing,” Griffin wrote. “We’re excited about how the game is shaping up, and it’s getting pretty big, so we want to take the time to make the game as good as possible. Expect more details from us once we get closer to release.”
Griffin’s message effectively rules out any appearances from before silksong On Xbox Showcases and Summer Game Fest fill the gap left by this year’s canceled E3. Cherry’s team refused to commit to a release date silksong Perhaps it’s just a reasonable precaution, though the wording of the tweet doesn’t suggest the game will be over any time soon. A late 2023 release or a slide to 2024 seems likely.
silksong It was first announced in 2019, but Team Cherry’s years-long silence on its development, barring that 2022 trailer, has turned fans’ desperate hopes for news of any platform-bearing offering into some sort of meme. It was originally conceived as an expansion of the original Hollow Knight That game’s antagonist/ally Hornet appears as the main character, silksong It has grown into a full sequel – and it seems like a very ambitious sequel.
when did it appear, Hollow Knight: Silksong It will be released on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Windows PC, Xbox One and Xbox Series X. It will be available on Game Pass from day one.
