Indie developer, Team Cherry, announced the sad news on Friday that the retail release of their title, Hollow Knight, has been cancelled.
As explained in a post on their website, the 3-man team decided that it just wasn’t realistic for them to complete the huge amount of work required for a voluminous brick & mortar release, try as they might, even with help from publisher, Skybound Games.
Despite the setback, the developers do still have hope that a physical release might happen sometime in the future, on a much smaller scale, and possibly through a different route than a retail store.
