The release of Hogwarts Legacy, a Harry Potter prequel set during the 1800s, has been postponed until next year, as reported by Warner Bros. and its developer, Avalanche Software. The game's release date, though brief, is likely to be delayed until February 10, 2023.
Another game has been hampered by a crushing delay, and fans of the Harry Potter franchise will have to wait a few weeks longer to get their hands on the next installment of Hogwarts Legacy, which was originally scheduled for a Holiday 2022 release date, but it has been pushed back to next year, as announced by Warner Bros. and its developer, Avalanche Software.
Hogwarts Legacy, a Harry Potter prequel set in the 1800s, was delayed until after the Holiday 2022 release date, which might coincide with the anticipated PlayStation 5 re-stock, which would surely stoke interest during Black Friday. There was no reason for the games' delayed release, since the team requires more time to finish polishing the highly anticipated title.
The Nintendo Switch version release date should be announced soon, but considering how Switch versions of multi-platform releases usually launch a couple of months later than they would on other platforms, we doubt it will arrive any time sooner than it will on other platforms. Those who are waiting for Hogwarts Legacy would have to wait until February 10, 2023.
The game itself was announced in January 2020, with initial plans to release Hogwarts Legacy on all major platforms in 2021. However, in January 2021, Warner Bros. announced that the game would be postponed until 2022, ensuring the game received the time it needed once more.
The narrative of Hogwarts Legacy is set in the Wizarding World during the 1800s, so a century or two before the Harry Potter novels. The players character is a new witch or a wizard who isnt enrolled in the school through the Sorting Hat but a fifth-year student at Hogwarts, where they study advanced magic and face their opponents. A dark wizard who is a threat to the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.
The inconvenience, although minor, isnt the only issue surrounding Hogwarts Legacy. The announcement sparked outrage over its connection to the franchise's author, J.K. Rowling, who was fired for her transphobic remarks.
Hogwarts Legacy is scheduled to be released on February 10, 2023, for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, and Windows PC. The Nintendo Switch version of the game, although announced, has yet to receive an official release date.
