The gaming community for Hollow Knight: Silksong is buzzing again, this time fueled by a cryptic tweet from Xbox's Australia and New Zealand account. The tweet in question was clearly meant to stir the Silksong pot, and fans took the bait hook, line, and sinker:

While the community has experienced its share of false starts, the sentiment this time around ranges from skeptical smiles to genuine optimism. Some fans insist that the tweet was "too blatant" not to signify something real, while others point out that Xbox wouldn't tease without substantial information.

This latest social media frenzy comes at an intriguing time: PAX Australia is about to celebrate its tenth anniversary in Melbourne, and Team Cherry, the Aussie developers behind Silksong, could potentially seize this moment for a significant announcement. Given the event and the developer's shared Australian roots, the stars could be aligning for some real news at last.

The game, announced back in February 2019, has kept its fanbase in a state of eager, if anxious, anticipation. Though there was a glimmer of hope at E3 2022, the expected early 2023 release date was officially pushed back in May. Meanwhile, a recent snafu involving Unity licensing fees did cast a shadow over the game's development, but Silksong still managed to climb to the second spot on Steam's most-wishlisted games. This all adds up to a blend of skepticism and hope as fans await what could finally be the moment they've been waiting for.
