Hogwarts Legacy, an RPG game set in the Harry Potter Universe, has been delayed until next year, with its developers affirming they are ‘giving the game the time it needs’.
The announcement came via Twitter this Wednesday, with Warner Bros. announcing on the game’s page that Hogwarts Legacy will be postponed until next year, not specifying any release date.
Hogwarts Legacy gathered a lot of attention, as an open-world, action role-playing game set in the renowned Harry Potter Universe.

Revealed in 2020 during a Playstation 5 event, the events of the video-game will take place during the 1800s, way before the time period depicted in the movies and novels.
Nevertheless, many fans of the pop-culture phenomenon are eager to find themselves in the ever familiar setting of Hogwarts, even if the writer behind the Harry Potter novels, J.K. Rowling, has also been absent from the project.
Avalanche Software has been the studio developing the game, having previously worked on projects such as Disney Infinity. Portkey Games, a recent division of Warner Bros. whose mission is “dedicated to creating gaming experiences related to the Wizarding World” will oversee the whole process.
When the game is finally launched, it will be available on a vast array of platforms: PC, PS5, PS4, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X.
This decision comes at a time where CD Projekt Red is under a lot of flak from the gaming community, after its disastrous launch of Cyberpunk 2077, with Warner Bros possibly wanting to avoid similar controversy.
