# WAITING FOR HOLLOW KNIGHT: SILKSONG
If you are a fan of the critically acclaimed game Hollow Knight, you have probably been eagerly anticipating the release of its sequel, Hollow Knight: Silksong. However, it seems that we will have to wait a little bit longer to get our hands on it. According to a recent statement by Matthew Griffin, who works on marketing and publishing for the game, Silksong is now planned for release in the first half of 2023.
Griffin also stated that the development team is taking its time to ensure that the game is as good as possible. Silksong has apparently grown quite large, and the team wants to make sure that everything is perfect before release. While this news may be disappointing to some, it’s reassuring to hear that the developers are committed to delivering a high-quality game.
For those who may not be familiar with Silksong, it features the character Hornet, who was originally introduced in Hollow Knight as a boss and later as a playable character. Initially intended to be DLC for Hollow Knight, Silksong later evolved into a full-scale sequel. Nintendo showcased some gameplay during E3 2019, but news about the game had been scarce until recently.
Despite the delay, there is still reason to look forward to Silksong. The game promises to offer new challenges, environments, and enemies in an expanded world. It will also feature new abilities and weapons for Hornet to use. With its gorgeous art style, haunting music, and intricate storytelling, Silksong is sure to deliver a memorable experience for fans of the series.
So, while we may have to wait a bit longer for Silksong, it’s clear that the development team is committed to delivering a game worthy of its predecessor. We can only hope that the extra time and effort will result in a truly exceptional gaming experience. Stay tuned for more details as we get closer to release.
