Skybound Games has announced that it is no longer partnering with Team Cherry to launch a physical version of Hollow Knight for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.

Although Skybound Games didn't reveal an exact reason for why the partnership had come to an end from their announcement tweet, Team Cherry did release a separate statement revealing that it was due to a lack of resources which is why the physical version had to be cancelled.

In a statement Team Cherry said, "As a team of 3 people still in intensive production of Hollow Knight, taking the game into the retail space (even with the extensive assistance of Skybound) proved more work than we could reasonably manage. In future [sic] we will investigate other ways to deliver physical versions of Hollow Knight, though likely that will be in smaller quantities."

Although the physical version of Hollow Knight has been canned, players can still get their hands on the game via the digital stores.

Thank God for Limited Run Games but no news yet. Of course even if they publish the game it will be limited obviously and their games will usually launch around $24.99USD and then the non-collectors will scoop them up and sell them at outrageous prices.

I was looking forward to a worldwide release. I went from waiting to pre-order the game to just waiting till it comes to PS+ IGC or on sale for a ridiculously low price that is to hard to pass on.

How come? At $15 the game is already a bargain, it's more than worth that price.

Because as a collector I like physical copies and would have even paid $50CAD for a copy of Hollow Knight and it's actually $19.99 on the Canadian PSN. Besides not like I have time to play the game with an ever increasing back log of PS4 games. It's at around 500 games and that's not including PS3 or PS Vita backlogs.
