During the Xbox + Bethesda Showcase on 12th June 2022, it was stated that all titles shown during the stream would be released “within the next 12 months” – and this includes Hollow Knight Silksong’s release date for Xbox, Switch, PC and PlayStation.

When asked to confirm if this is the release date window for Hollow Knight Silksong too, Xbox confirmed that this was the case. It’ll also be on Xbox Game Pass on Day 1.

In Hollow Knight Silksong you play as Hornet, a side character from the original game now a playable protagonist. Hornet finds herself in a vast, unfamiliar world where she needs to master a whole arsenal of powerful moves to survive.

As a Metroidvania – and similar to the first game – expect the game’s world to be huge, filled with countless amounts of secrets, and replayable due to the amount of powers available to you.

Hollow Knight is especially a favourite amongst Nintendo Switch players, and the meme of “Silksong when?” during Nintendo Directs is all too common. 

What’s more, the release date for Hollow Knight Silksong on Switch might actually be even sooner than on Xbox. Back in 2019, it was confirmed the game would be a console exclusive at launch for Switch, with other platforms getting it soon after.

So while Xbox and PS5 fans may need to wait a bit longer, those on PC and Switch can rest easy knowing the Hollow Knight Silksong release date could be revealed at any moment.
