Hollow Knight Silksong has been a long-awaited sequel to Hollow Knight, a 2D Metroidvania adventure that captivated audiences when it was first released in 2017. Fans have been eagerly awaiting details about Silksong for years, and only recently have more information on it, with the latest information coming from the Xbox and Bethesda Games showcase earlier this year, confirming that it will be released to Xbox Game Pass on day one. It has now been confirmed that Silksong will be making its way to PlayStation 4 and 5 when it launches.
The confirmation that Hollow Knight Silksong will release for PlayStation platforms comes from the official PlayStation twitter page.
“Sharpen your needles – confirming that Hollow Knight: Silksong is coming to PS5 and PS4,” reads the tweet.
For many fans, the details aren’t surprising, but with Xbox sharing that Silksong would be a day one Xbox Game Pass title, it’s good to see that PlayStation fans won’t be missing out on this title. We expect Silksong to come to PlayStation when it officially launches sometime in early 2023, but that wasn’t shared in the tweet. Hopefully this is the case, to ensure that as many fans of the Hollow Knight series can jump into it when the game is available.
The wait for Silksong has been a long ride. Fans have made thousands of clown memes about seeing showcases and reveals, shouting out that they would finally receive information about the game, only to be disappointed, but the wait is almost over. The Xbox team confirmed that Silksong would release within the next 12 months after they announced their Xbox Game Pass, so it would be released by June 12, 2023, but there has been no official confirmation.
For now, fans are still waiting to know when they can return to the Hollow Knight series and explore Silksong. PlayStation fans can rest easy knowing that they too will be going on the next journey in the Hollow Knight games.
