Hogwarts Legacy will be an open-world game set in the Harry Potter universe. A Hogwarts student can be made, accepted into one of the four houses, and then sent to classes to advance in skill and learn more about their magical abilities. There’s action happening all over the school grounds, not just in the classrooms, and plenty of potential threats around every corner. Avalanche Software, who has developed the Disney Infinity games and many other Disney video games like Cars, Toy Story 3, and Bolt, is working on the project.

The release of Hogwarts Legacy had been anticipated for the year 2021. However, Avalanche Software stated in early January 2021 that Hogwarts Legacy would be released in 2022. According to the Hogwarts Legacy State of Play, we can expect the game to launch around the holiday season of 2022. However, that is not the situation.

On August 12, 2022, Avalanche Software and WB Games released a video statement on Twitter informing Hogwarts fans of the game’s postponement. The release date of Hogwarts Legacy has been pushed back from the winter holidays of 2022 to the winter of 2023, specifically to February 10th, 2023.

It’s unfortunate that the release date is later than expected, but at least we have a fair amount of information about Hogwarts Legacy at this point. The devs showed us around the game’s open world, the various classes, the various spells and potions, and how the broomstick could be used to get around. Fourteen minutes of in-game footage were shown during the State of Play.

The official release date for PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox One S, and PC versions of Hogwarts Legacy is February 10, 2023. A launch window for the Nintendo Switch has not been set as of this writing.
