Hogwarts Legacy: fixed Release Date, but Postponement into 2023

Hogwarts Legacy has been postponed until February 10, 2023. The Switch release date is “soon to be disclosed.” The open-world action RPG set in the 1800s of the Harry Potter Wizarding World has been postponed twice, first from 2021 to 2022, then to the first quarter of 2023.

Hogwarts Legacy tweeted, “The team is delighted for you to play, but we need a bit more time to create the finest possible gaming experience.” New tab: Chandler Wood, Avalanche Software’s community manager, also tweeted. “You may be sad that the game was delayed,” said Wood, “but we’re delighted to offer you a release date.”

We’ve followed Hogwarts Legacy from its first leak until its 2019 unveiling. Hogwarts Legacy has an official website, but we’ve put all we know about it here. (Which is strange, as fishing generally involves a net.)

Hogwarts Legacy’s development was eventful. Leaked footage in 2018 suggested WB’s Avalanche studio was developing Harry Potter and the Magic Awakened. Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling added her own transphobic beliefs in 2020, and Hogwarts developers struggled to incorporate a trans-inclusive character generator. The company also had to deal with a producer who posted anti-social justice films on YouTube. The producer quit.

About Hogwarts Legacy

Hogwarts Legacy is an upcoming action role-playing game developed by Avalanche Software and distributed by Warner Bros. The game is set in Harry Potter’s Wizarding World, which includes Fantastic Beasts. The game will be published on February 10, 2023 for Windows, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and X/S. Nintendo Switch’s release date is unknown.

The late 1800s-set Hogwarts follows a fifth-year student. The player character, who bears the key to a “ancient mystery that threatens to split the wizarding world apart,” may use an ancient power and must learn why it has resurfaced and who is seeking to wield it. Nearly Headless Nick, the Fat Lady, and Peeves are playable characters. Professor Eleazar Fig, the protagonist’s mentor, will also be presented. Ranrok, the Goblin Rebellion commander, and Victor Rookwood, a Dark Wizard, are game antagonists.
