The Hollow Knight sequel was first teased three years in the past, and since that point, the neighborhood has heard and seen subsequent to nothing. However, with each new gaming showcase comes one other likelihood for information, and that’s what’s taking place right here because of Summer Game Fest.

Ensuing threads on ResetEra and Reddit are full of individuals crossing their fingers, hoping to be taught one thing new about Silksong. “I can feel it in my bones,” says White Glint within the ResetEra thread. “Sits patiently with circus music playing,” jokes capitaine_d on Reddit. On the flip aspect, there are many of us tempering their expectations. Many level out that Griffin’s understanding response might simply as simply seek advice from Crownsworn, the opposite game beneath his advertising purview.
