Hollow Knight Silksong Developer Gives Update On Progress

Hollow Knight: Silksong still doesn’t have a release date in sight, Team Cherry hinted that it shouldn’t be too far away until we get some news.

Yesterday (May 12) we were treated to a Nintendo Indie World where we saw a number of fun reveals and ports. And of course, Hollow Knight: Silksong was on everyone’s brains for this one.

Fans were extra hopeful at the start of the presentation when one of the hosts specifically mentioned Australia, where developer Team Cherry is based.

Unfortunately for those who were hoping it would appear, another presentation went by with nary a bug around. But some kind of news shouldn’t be too far away, at least according to Team Cherry.

As reported by Nintendo Life, last month Unity held the Unity Awards 2021, and Hollow Knight: Silksong, unsurprisingly, won the most anticipated game.

Team Cherry provided a slightly tongue-in-cheek message giving thanks for the award. “We’re honored that Hollow Knight: Silksong won the 2021 Unity Award for the most anticipated game, and hugely appreciate all of the fans who support us as we work on the game. Thank you so much. We’re looking forward to the day we can share the game with you all. It can’t be too much longer, surely!

Team Cherry is right, it couldn’t be too much longer, surely! Of course, it will have to be a bit longer. Which is completely fine as it is an independent studio with limited resources. And at this point, Hollow Knight is probably big enough to make an appearance at a full sized Direct. With not-E3 right around the corner, it could be that we could get some actual solid news soon.
