Hogwarts Legacy Delayed Until 2023, Warner Bros. Confirms

Hogwarts Legacy, the open-world adventure set in the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, originally a holiday release window in 2022, is now a 2023 game. On Friday, publisher Warner Bros. and developer Avalanche Software announced a delay and new release date for: Hogwarts Legacy: February 10, 2023.

“The team is excited for you to play, but we need a little more time to deliver the best gaming experience possible,” Warner Bros. said on the official: Hogwarts Legacy Twitter account. It also noted that the new date only applies to the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Windows PC, Xbox One and Xbox Series X versions of Hogwarts Legacy – the Nintendo Switch version has no new release date.

Hogwarts Legacy is set in the late 1800s, about 100 years before Harry Potter enrolls. The player character is a new wizard or witch, except they start out as a fifth year student at Hogwarts where they learn advanced magical techniques such as brewing and casting spells, making friends and battling with rivals and dark wizards at Hogwarts University for Witchcraft and Hocus-Pocus.

While the game fits into the general Harry Potter canon, creator JK Rowling is not involved in Hogwarts Legacy‘s creation. Immediately after the announcement Hogwarts Legacy in September 2020, last Warner Bros. Games distanced the project from her in light of Rowling’s public and transphobic comments about gender identity.
