Harry Potter fans are an excitable bunch, and you can’t blame them – Hogwarts Legacy is an open-world adventure that allows you to attend wizarding school as your own unique character. The question is, what is the release date of the new game?
We don’t have an exact release day, but we may have a new window. Reddit user SeerPumpkin uploaded a portion of a Toy World Magazine interview with Rachel Wakley, Warner Brothers CEO of Consumer Products. Wakley talks about Warner’s “two major releases” coming in 2022: “The first is Fantastic Beasts: Dumbledore’s Secrets.” The second [is] a new console game, Hogwarts Legacy «. Wakley doesn’t say outright that the game will come after the movie, but the wording implies that possibility. The new Fantastic Animals The film hits theaters on April 8, 2022 in the United Kingdom and arrives in the United States a week later.
That’s right at the beginning of the second financial quarter of 2022, which could also be an opportune time to launch the game. It is quite up in the air after the delay that occurred in January this year. Wakley says the game will “be worth the wait” when it launches, which could also be a way to soften the fact that it will arrive later next year. We’ll have to wait and see.
In the meantime, we can at least revisit the early game trailer. It features the Sorting Hat, plenty of views of the Hogwarts grounds, and dangerous mythical monsters, of course. Hogwarts Legacy is coming to PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X / S, Xbox One, and PC.
