Hogwarts Legacy just announced its official release date, and it looks like it’ll be a bit later than originally expected.
This new magical adventure will take players through the Wizarding World of Hogwarts in a way that fans have been dreaming about for ages.
But it seems that players will need to wait a little longer than intended to get their hands on Hogwarts Legacy.
When Is the Harry Potter Hogwarts Legacy Release Date?
Hogwarts Legacy will officially release on February 10, 2023, for PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and PC on Steam and Epic Games Store. Pre-orders of the game are now available.
Avalance Software will reveal the Nintendo Switch version release date at a later time.
They announced this via their official Twitter and alongside a statement from Chandler Wood, the Community Manager at Avalanche Software.
Leaks of the DLC have also hinted that players who pre-order the game will be able to obtain Early Access to Hogwarts Legacy.
Does Hogwarts Legacy Have an Official Release Date Yet?
Yes, Hogwarts Legacy has an official release date after nearly two years since it was first announced.
Avalanche Software had initially intended to release Hogwarts Legacy in 2021. But because of development, they’ve had to push back the title a few times.
Avalanche Software and Portkey Games’ goal is to create the best possible experience in the Wizarding World for players to enjoy.
But now, it appears that they’re finally ready for players to enter the world of Hogwarts Legacy. But it won’t be in Holiday 2022 as they had previously announced.
Why Was Hogwarts Legacy Delayed to 2023?
In their statement, Avalanche Software announced that they’d pushed their release date to 2023 to focus more time on the development of Hogwarts Legacy.
Doing this will allow them to flesh out every detail in the open world of Hogwarts Legacy. This will ensure that players have the best experience when first entering the Wizarding World they are building.
This is the second time Avalanche Software has delayed Hogwarts Legacy for the same reason, but this is the first time they’ve followed up with an official release date.
With this announcement, it’s very likely that we will see pre-orders open up for the recently leaked Hogwarts Legacy Collector’s Edition.
