Team Cherry, the indie developer behind Hollow Knight, made the announcement that they are scrapping the physical release of their title which was slated to release Spring 2019. The news came from Skybound Games who was going to aid Team Cherry in the syndication process. You may remember Skybound as they are the developers currently working The Walking Dead in place of Telltale.
Team Cherry then announced the news via their blog that the disheartening news was real.
The team simply underestimated the process of releasing their game physically. Even with the help of Skybound, it was still too much for the team of three to manage.
They did, however, provide some hope to users wanting physical copies. According to their blog post, they plan to investigate other means to make physical copies of Hollow Knight a reality. That being said, it’d be done in limited quantities.
You can play Hollow Knight now on PC, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch.
