Team Cherry has delayed Hollow Knight: Silksong.
The last we heard, Silksong was due out in the first half of 2023 but last night, Team Cherry delayed the game without offering up a new window.
“We had planned to release in the 1st half of 2023, but development is still continuing,” Team Cherry marketing and publishing spokesperson Matthew Griffin wrote on Twitter. “We’re excited by how the game is shaping up, and it’s gotten quite big, so we want to take the time to make the game as good as we can. Expect more details from us once we get closer to release.”
Hey gang, just a quick update about Silksong.
We had planned to release in the 1st half of 2023, but development is still continuing. We’re excited by how the game is shaping up, and it’s gotten quite big, so we want to take the time to make the game as good as we can.

As you can see, it’s clear Silksong won’t be released in the first half of 2023 as originally planned, but there’s no word or indication of what the game’s new release date is.
Team Cherry put out its first game, Hollow Knight, in 2018 and it was extremely well received. While the game received several free DLCs, the studio was also working on a larger expansion of paid DLC starring Hornet from the game. In 2019, the team announced this DLC had expanded massively in scope, to the point it’d now be a full sequel game called Hollow Knight: Silksong. Since then, fans of the first Hollow Knight have wondered when they’d be able to play Silksong.
