When exactly is the release date of Hogwarts Legacy?

Hogwarts Legacy is either on track or delayed depending on your preferred gaming platform.


Hogwarts Legacy has been one of the most highly anticipated games since its initial reveal at a State of Play showcase two years ago. Unfortunately, the incoming Harry Potter title is in desperate need of some good luck (Hermione probably has a spell for one) because the game just keeps on getting delayed. It might be the result of being in development during the COVID-19 pandemic, but it's easy to get confused as to when exactly Hogwarts Legacy is coming out after being delayed twice already.

Hogwarts Legacy is just a part of the stacked lineup of games that's coming in Q1 2023.

Hogwarts Legacy was originally slated to come out earlier this year before a second delay pushed it back to its current release date on February 10. As for the third delay, here's when things get quite complicated.

For what it's worth, Hogwarts Legacy is still coming out on February 10 for the PlayStation 5, Xbox Series S and X as well as the PC. However, Hogwarts Legacy won't be available on the PlayStation 4 and the Xbox One until April 4. Finally, the Nintendo Switch version won't roll out until July 25.

The FAQ clarifies that early access via the Digital Deluxe edition of Hogwarts Legacy will no longer apply on the PS4 and the Xbox One.

So, if you want to play Hogwarts Legacy on February 7, you'll need to buy it for the PS5 and Xbox Series S/X. The good news is that Sony is confident that the stock shortage for the PS5 has ended. You should be able to get your hands on either current-gen console over the next few weeks.

We're still surprised that Hogwarts Legacy is coming out on last-gen consoles after being delayed to next year.

Speaking of Harry Potter, the cinematic future of the Wizarding World is very bright. After the Warner Bros. Discovery merger, the new management is reportedly making future Harry Potter films a priority. According to David Zaslav, franchises are going to have a "real focus". Hopefully, this means we'll see more Harry Potter films in the next few years.
