Hollow Knight: Silksong Development Update May Disappoint Games Fans
Recently, Team Cherry released a new developer update for their upcoming game, Hollow Knight: Silksong, on social media. Although many fans have been eagerly awaiting the sequel to the well-known indie title since it was announced, they may not be pleased with what the developers have to say about it.
Since the sequel for Hollow Knight: Silksong was revealed in 2019, fans have had high expectations for the game. This is understandable considering the success of its predecessor when it first released in 2017. But, Team Cherry has yet to give any updates or a release date or launch period in the Nintendo Indie World Showcase. Now, they have used social media to make an announcement concerning the game and address the worries of their fan base.
It’s Been Such a Significant Period of Time Since Hollow Knight: Silksong Was Revealed That Its Site Has Ended
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.

Matthew Griffin, responsible for PR and marketing for Team Cherry, made an announcement on Twitter about the release date of Hollow Knight: Silksong. Originally planned for the first half of 2023, the team has decided against pushing through with the release. Griffin calms the community by assuring them that development is still in progress, in an effort to prevent any worries that the project may be abandoned. He also stated that the title has “gotten quite big” and the team is thrilled with what is to be found in Silksong when it is eventually launched.
No release date has yet been announced for Hollow Knight: Silksong, and the launch period is still unknown. However, the responses to Griffin’s Twitter post were generally quite positive, with people expressing their concern for the quality of the game and the well-being of the game development team. This is likely due to the prevalence of ‘crunch times’ during the production process, and so fans of the game are hoping that the team is able to take care of themselves.
Griffin remarked that as the development of Hollow Knight: Silksong continues, more details will be shared. It is hoped that the team will become more vocal about the game on social media and other outlets, providing more regular updates. The fans of the game will look forward to any news about the title and will be eager for more information.
Hollow Knight: Silksong is being created with the intention of being released on PC, PS4, PS5, Switch, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
