Hogwarts Legacy has been delayed to 2022

Last summer, we got our first official look at Hogwarts Legacy. The RPG set in the Harry Potter universe looks to be incredibly promising but we’re going to have to wait longer than expected.

“We would like to thank fans from around the world on the tremendous reaction to the announcement of Hogwarts Legacy from our Portkey Games label. Creating the best possible experience for all of the Wizarding World and gaming fans is paramount to us so we are giving the game all the time it needs,” reads a statement. The highly-anticipated next-gen RPG will now release sometime in 2022.

Hogwarts Legacy is being developed by Just Cause developer Avalanche and will not feature Potter himself. The game is set hundreds of years prior to the arrival of Harry Potter and allows you to be whatever kind of wizard you wish. You can be evil or good, explore the grounds of Hogwarts, and see all the iconic sights to the Wizarding World. Before its reveal in 2020, the game leaked years prior with some footage.

The game will be entirely single-player and hopefully fulfil the fantasies of many Harry Potter fans.

“Your character is a student who holds the key to an ancient secret that threatens to tear the wizarding world apart. You have received a late acceptance to the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry and soon discover that you are no ordinary student: you possess an unusual ability to perceive and master Ancient Magic. Only you can decide if you will protect this secret for the good of all, or yield to the temptation of more sinister magic,” reads an official description of the game.

Hogwarts Legacy looks to be quite promising so hopefully the delay will make it all worth it. Hogwarts Legacy will release on Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PS4, PS5, and PC.
