Hollow Knight: Silksong has been delayed
by Danny Craig ·
The sequel to 2017's Metroidvania, Hollow Knight, has been delayed past the first half of 2023.
- 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.

- Mirage and Nexus, two Assassin's Creed titles, have reportedly been delayed internally by a few months, with Mirage's new release date set for October. Both games were supposed to be shown off at Ubisoft Forward Live in June, and the reason for the delays is unknown at this time.
- After the Little Nightmares’ original developer, Tarsier Studios, announced that it would no longer be working on the franchise after the second game's release in 2021, Bandai Namco has confirmed that it is working on a third game in the franchise.
