Es duro saber que no volveremos a vernos más.

would volvamos a vernos also be correct?
Es duro is an impersonal expression, but saber only takes the subjunctive in the negative so does the presence of saber mandate the indicative? thank you

No, with this you are saying that :" it’s hard to know that we will never see eachother again." So you use the future.
If you use saber it means you are sure, so you can’t use volvamos, sounds strange.
But with a slight change:
Es duro pensar que no volvamos a vernos más. It’s hard to think we won’t see eachother again.


thank you, that is very helpful
