The sequel to 2017's Metroidvania, Hollow Knight, has been delayed past the first half of 2023.

The details:

  • Matthew Griffin, Team Cherry's marketing and publishing lead, announced on Twitter that the title would miss its targeted release window of "the first half of 2023," with new information about the game coming "closer to release," including its new release date.
  • Griffin stated that the development team is "excited by how the game is shaping up" and that it has "gotten quite big," implying that the game, like the majority of delays, is simply not yet finished. Most fans have backed the decision, with many stating that they'd rather have a complete game than an "unplayable" title like the recently released Redfall or Star Wars Jedi: Survivor.
  • Hollow Knight: Silksong was announced in 2019, with Xbox's official Twitter account confirming that it would be released in the "next 12 months" in July 2022. It was announced for PC, Nintendo Switch, Xbox, and PlayStation, with a day-one launch coming to Xbox Game Pass.
