A recent tweet has led fans to speculate there might be some Hollow Knight: Silksong news at this year’s upcoming Summer Games Fest. Fans have long been awaiting news about the title ever since it was announced back in 2019.
Hollow Knight: Silksong is the anticipated sequel of the original Hollow Knight game. The original game was a metroidvania which caught the attention of fans thanks to its depressing souls-like aesthetic and whimsical art direction.
A recent tweet by Matthew Griffin, a member of Team Cherry has some fans expecting Silksong news during the Summer Games Fest. Event host Geoff Keighley recently teased he had received information about a world premiere and Matthew Griffith was quick to respond, approving Keighley’s teaser that he’d received something interesting.
Of course while there’s no indication this “world premiere” is intended for the Summer Games Fest, and also no indication that Griffin is doing anything more than congratulating Keighley on his sly hype-building; fans are nonetheless drawing conclusions of their own.
Last month during a Nintendo showcase featuring indie games, comments were inundated with fans asking after Silksong but the game was nowhere to be found then. Of course some delays are to be expected for games that were announced shortly before the ongoing pandemic and Silksong is no exception.
February came and went after the release date was allegedly leaked for that month and fans have been quiet since. After three years of almost radio silence, the Summer Games Fest might finally be the announcement they’ve been waiting for.
