Among the indie titles that have stood out the most in recent years is Hollow Knight, mainly thanks to its challenging gameplay. Because of this, players have waited patiently for the arrival of Hollow Knight: Silksong, a title that was originally planned as a DLC but eventually became a standalone installment. The wait has been long, but development appears to be very close to being ready.
Hollow Knight fans started the new year with happiness, as developer Team Cherry shared many details about the new installment. Unfortunately, no release date or window was revealed, so they would have to keep waiting indefinitely to find out when they will be able to play it.
If you are one of these fans, there is good news, because apparently the wait should not be that long. We say this because Matthew Griffin, head of marketing and public relations at Team Cherry, suggested on the game’s official server on Discord (via ResetEra, user belairjeff ) that the developer already has all the content that will appear in Hollow Knight: Silksong ready and that it is only found in the final tests.
TEAM CHERRY ANNOUNCES RELEASE DATE WHEN IT’S CERTAIN
However, he explained that the developer will not share a development date for this reason. According to Griffin, the ideal is to announce a release date only when you already have a working version of the game and you only need small details such as additional bug fixes, which could be fixed in the remaining time before launch. Griffin made this comment in response to a fan request for information regarding the game’s debut.
“ You can say, ‘We’ve finished all the content in the game and it’s in final testing,’ but even THAT doesn’t say anything about our release schedule. My own personal philosophy is that you shouldn’t announce a release date until you have a version that can be released, and then you’re just taking the time to fix additional bugs and market a game, ”Griffin commented.
Definitely, Griffin’s philosophy makes sense, as this would avoid major delays due to lack of development time and fans would not be disappointed. Although it is not revealed how much is missing in the development of the game, if we consider that the content is already ready and is only in final tests, it is very possible that the title will be available in the coming months. We will keep you informed.
