Postponed in 2022 to offer the best video game experience in the Harry Potter universe, Hogwarts Legacy will be released later this year on PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, Xbox One and PC.
If recent rumors suggest that Hogwarts Legacy will soon see its release date shifted a second time to aim for 2023, the official Wizarding World blog dedicated to the fantastic media franchise and shared fictional universe based on JK Rowling’s Harry Potter series of novels assures that this new video game adaptation will arrive well in time : “2022 is also the year of the release of the highly anticipated console game from Warner Bros. Games’ Portkey Games label, Hogwarts Legacy. Developed by Avalanche Software, this action RPG puts players at the center of their own adventure in the wizarding world of the late 1800s. Whether learning powerful spells, cooking potions, hone combat skills or tame magical beasts, this game will allow players to experience the magical world as a student of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry like never before, while determining the fate of the entire wizarding world.”
For those wondering about #HogwartsLegacy and worried about recent rumours, this article by @wizardingworld confirms that game will be released this year (or at least, that’s the current plan) https://t.co/zaKN77f0du
