Warner Bros. released the first teaser for Hogwarts Legacy, a new video game set in the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, in late 2020. Before it was formally unveiled, the project had been suspected to be in the works for quite some time.
The release date for Hogwarts Legacy was originally set for 2021, however, it was then pushed out to an undetermined date. Warner Bros. disclosed the game’s release date in a recent article on Wizarding World.com and suggested that the release will happen sometime in 2022. It didn’t say which quarter it will be launched in, though.
The Wizarding World website indicated that Hogwarts Legacy will still be released this year in a compilation piece on what to anticipate from the Harry Potter series in 2022. “Hogwarts Legacy, a highly anticipated console game from Warner Bros. Games’ Portkey Games label is planned to be published in 2022,” according to the update.
However, the most recent launch date was questioned again, early this month. Last week, video game writer Colin Moriarty revealed on his podcast that Avalanche is having problems with the Hogwarts Legacy production, which might push the release date out to 2023. “I’m hearing behind the scenes that [the] game won’t be released this year and that it’s in peril,” Moriarty stated.
