What we know about Hollow Knight: Silk song release date
Originally intended to be a DLC extension for the original Hollow Knight game, Team Cherry decided to expand the Silk song’s scope and make it a “full-scale” sequel. This was the explanation Team Cherry gave when they first announced their decision.
They pledged to their 2158 backers on Kickstarter that even though Silk song has expanded in scope to include a full-scale sequel rather than just an additional DLC for the base game, they would still honour their pledge to offer it to them at no extra cost.
Team Cherry is not releasing any details about Silksong’s release date. They prefer to keep it a secret than reveal a date they cannot meet.
The game was initially developed as a Game Jam prototype in August 2013. It was released commercially in February 2017. The team worked on several updates to the game and the console versions before they moved on to Silk song. To the best of our knowledge, Team Cherry is still a three-person operation. It’s difficult to predict how long Silk song will take, as we don’t know the exact scale. However, we will be watching for any additional information that becomes available.
