The Long Wait

Announced in 2019, Hollow Knight: Silksong was set to be the much-anticipated sequel to the critically acclaimed Hollow Knight. Fans were eager to dive back into the beautifully crafted world that developer Team Cherry had created. However, as of February 2024, the game has yet to see an official release date. The delay has left fans in a state of limbo, eagerly awaiting any news or updates.

Users on Reddit

If you’ve recently visited the largest Hollow Knight: Silksong subreddit, you’ve likely seen the latest HK community trend. This movement threatens to “sacrifice” all of r/Silksong if Team Cherry doesn’t update the eagerly awaited sequel.

It’s unclear who started the campaign or how it began, but the fans’ primary demand is crystal clear. They want information about Hollow Knight: Silksong, initially scheduled for release in the first half of 2023 but delayed due to ongoing development. If Team Cherry doesn’t meet this demand, the fans threaten to delete, or “sacrifice,” the entire r/Silksong subreddit, which currently has over 34,400 subscribers.

The Reddit user speculates that the lack of information about Silksong, the sequel to the game Hollow Knight, could be due to a potential agreement between its developers and Nintendo. They suggest that Silksong might be planned as a launch title for a hypothetical “Switch 2,” and the silence is to prevent leaks and speculation

As of now, it’s uncertain what will happen to the subreddit if Hollow Knight: Silksong isn’t released by the presumed deadline of March 1, 2024. It’s unknown whether the moderators will embrace the meme and sacrifice the community or if the movement will die down. We strongly recommend visiting r/Silksong while it’s still available to learn more about the movement.

Fans wait

The situation surrounding Hollow Knight: Silksong serves as a reminder of the power of anticipation in the gaming world. It shows how a passionate fan base can rally around a title, even in the face of prolonged silence from developers. While the wait for Silksong continues, one thing is clear: when the game finally does release, it will be met with a community that is more than ready to dive in.

In the meantime, the Silksong subreddit will continue to wait, joke, and hope for any news about their much-anticipated game. And who knows? Maybe their collective voice will reach the ears of Team Cherry and hasten the arrival of Hollow Knight: Silksong.
