The post continues and Skybound Games wishes Hollow Knight developer Team Cherry the best for their game in the future.
Additionally, Team Cherry has also addressed the announcement saying that "As a team of three 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." Team Chery does say that a Hollow Knight physical release isn't entirely out of the question, but will more so be possible in the future and in "smaller quantities."
