Hogwarts Legacy release date

Hogwarts Legacy was revealed in September 2020 with a very fancy-looking cinematic trailer that showed off the titular school in all of its digitally rendered glory.

We also got glimpses of famous scenes from the books and films, such as students being sorted and congregating in the courtyards. Like many titles of that year, it was slated for a 2021 release but eventually ended up being delayed.

The game was eventually pushed back to a 2023 release date.

  • PS5, Xbox Series X/S, and PC players will be able to enjoy Hogwarts Legacy on February 10th, 2023.
  • The Hogwarts Legacy release date for the PS4 and Xbox One is slightly further away on April 4th, 2023.
  • Finally, those on the Nintendo Switch will have to wait for Hogwarts Legacy to release on July 25th, 2023.

Where does Hogwarts Legacy sit within the Harry Potter world?

This game is deeply rooted in the same magical universe of the wizarding world. Hogwarts Legacy from Portkey Games may not be a direct adaptation but it stays true to J.K. Rowling’s original version.

See Hogwarts Legacy as a fresh new experience that will allow players to adventure through new territory and immerse themselves into the world they love.

Hogwarts Legacy Trailer

The trailer for this game did not reveal a whole lot of information about how the game is actually going to play. We know it’s an open-world RPG, which means that you’ll be able to freely explore the grounds and halls of Hogwarts school.

On top of that, you’ll be able to make your own character and get sorted into your own Hogwarts house based on the word of a talking hat.

Other than that, we can base some gameplay assumptions on the snippets that are shown during the initial reveal trailer, though things are liable to have changed a fair bit since then.

Hogwarts Legacy is going to be a third-person action game where you can cast spells at enemies in all likelihood. We’ve seen some scenes of students fighting dragons and other monsters like giants, so with any luck, we’ll get to do some of that stuff for ourselves too.

You can check out the original trailer for the game below if you haven’t already seen it.
