Hogwarts Legacy release date pushed back to early 2023, Switch version coming later

The official Hogwarts Legacy Twitter account has Announced that Hogwarts Legacy will no longer be released this holiday season. Originally slated to hit stores in 2021, the latest release date for the open-world RPG is now February 10, 2023. However, this is only for the PlayStation, Xbox, and PC versions of the game. For those looking to pick up the game for the Nintendo Switch, it looks like the wait will be even longer.

Set in the magical world of Harry Potter, Hogwarts Legacy takes place more than 100 years before the events of the popular book series. The game allows players to create their own character, choose their house, and attend classes, all while unfolding an original story involving a goblin rebellion around them. Developer Avalanche Games has confirmed that the game will not feature multiplayer elements or microtransactions, instead opting for a story-driven single-player experience.

However, the excitement over Hogwarts Legacy also comes with a fair amount of baggage due to Harry Potter series author JK Rowling’s anti-transgender stance. While Rowling is reportedly “not directly involved” with the upcoming game, it has not been made clear whether she will benefit from its success. It is also unknown if Rowling will write additional stories set in the Harry Potter universe or release additional films.
