Obviously anything could happen, but this statement is pretty clear: don’t expect any Silksong news during E3 2021 next month. The users on the game’s subreddit are taking the news quite well, with many supporting and praising the team for announcing this weeks ahead of time to avoid the disappointment that might have happened otherwise.
“I respect them for coming out and saying it so people don’t get upset and yell at the team when nothing happens,” Redditor Mr_Mimiseku said. “Doesn’t mean I’m not antsy to get a hold of this game with my grubby little fingers. The longer we wait, the better the game will be.”While there is an air of disappointment — Silksong fans are hungry for even just a morsel of new information regarding the game — most of the comments in the subreddit mimic Mr_Mimiseku’s comment.
Due to COVID-19, E3 was canceled last year, but the electronics gaming show is set to return this year from June 12 to June 15. While there won’t be any Silksong shown there, many other studios and companies like Xbox, Nintendo, Ubisoft, and more will showcase upcoming games.
Silksong was last seen at E3 2019 and it’s there that IGN was able to play the game. Read IGN’s thoughts on it, and why it feels like Hollow Knight cranked up to 11, and then be sure to watch 16 minutes of gameplay from E3 2019 after that. While waiting for more Silksong news, whenever that might occur, check out this Nintendo Treehouse Silksong presentation from E3 2019.
