Okay there was a point at where I thought Will of the Wisps and Silk Song would appear during the same year…

Yes I get it, COVID happened. But this is a tiny team and I imagine they could figure an easy way around continual development. It was in fantastic playable form when it was last seen, and even Elden Ring has received a release date.

So where is my most anticipated game behind Elden Ring & Metroid Dread? Huh GAF?

Yeah it's been weird not having it show up on any of the big events this year.
Hopefully the delay is just the team making it better and even more content packed than the first one and not some sort of dev issue.

Still one of my top 5 most hyped games.

It should’ve been played before Death’s Door. Also Yoku’s Island Express. It inspired will of the wisps…

Yoku's Island Express doesn't hold a candle to Will of the Wisps.

That said, Hollow Knight destroys them all.

It has a bunch of things that will of the wisps lifted though. And it’s still a fun game. Second point…yes sir!

Did will of the wisps make money? because if it did the developers are too busy spending it.

I think they announced this game way too early. Probably will release in 2023 or 2024, 2023 sounds right.
They had to, the Original kickstarter had Hornet as a playable character in some paid DLC, this is a massive expansion of that idea

Have they ever talked about a release year? Since they’ve shown trailers it feels like it can’t be too far away.

Seems likely since it’s on Xbox, PC and Switch. But they obviously wanted the Playstation money as well since they went away from Microsoft, Private Division is holding the wallet for the development of their new IP.

How do you know?
Because it lifts ideas from the game, and it introduced them well before WW came out. It’s easy to notice where they were inspired. Also Yokus IE was inspired by Hollow Knight and the first Ori.

Does Hollow Knight have a history at TGS?
no but i wanted to fire off a hot take. they're based in australia so the timezone isn't that different idk what that would have to do with anything tho
