Hollow Knight Silksong Is In Final Testing Stage But Release Date Is Still Far Away
Hollow Knight Silksong is one of the most anticipated indies that will be released for PC and Nintendo Switch, but it has no release date as of yet.
Hollow Knight is a Kickstarter surprise success story. It was crowdfunded in 2014 on Kickstarter and initially released for PC back in 2017. Soon after release, it gained major critical acclaim and quickly became one of the most-talked indies slingshotting the developers to the top of Steam charts. It was later ported to the Nintendo Switch in 2018 followed by a port to PS4 and Xbox One.
Hollow Knight Silksong is a sequel to the original indie hit that was first revealed in 2019, and since then, it has been missing in action. However, the good news, for now, is that according to the community and PR manager at Team Cherry, they have finished developing content for the game, and right now it is in the final testing stage.
“You could say “we’ve finished all the content of the game and are in final testing” but even THAT doesn’t say anything about release schedule – my own personal philosophy is that you should not announce a release date until you have a build that could be released, and then you’re just giving yourself some time to fix additional bugs and market a game.”
Judging from the statement, while the developers are wrapping up most of the work for Silksong, they want to make sure they have a release date that can be hit without issues before announcing one.
