Hogwarts Legacy is still expected to release in 2022, according to an update on the official Harry Potter website — 1800s Hogwarts, here we come!

Hogwarts Legacy

The news comes via an official update on the Wizarding World website (thanks, Eurogamer), which amongst other Harry Potter related news, also confirms that Hogwarts Legacy is still set to launch sometime in 2022. The update doesn’t say much more than that, so no word on an expected release window just yet, but the knowledge that we may yet experience the game this year is welcome news — especially after rumours of the game's delay started making the rounds. According to Sacred Symbols' former games journalist, Colin Moriarty, on an episode of Sacred Symbols Plus, Hogwarts Legacy's development was proving to be a challenge for the team at Avalanche and the game isn't coming out this year. The rumour was reputed by multiple sources, and this official update definitely puts the rumour to bed.

Hogwarts Legacy is developed by Avalanche Software and takes place in the late 1800s, putting us in the shoes of a young witch or wizard. We'll be able to explore Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, learn how to cast spells, create potions, and partake in an action RPG experience.

We’ll of course let you know if further announcements are made about the game’s release date, but for now, we have one question for you: which house will you be looking to join? Gryffindor, Slytherin, Hufflepuff, or Ravenclaw? Choose wisely, fellow witches and wizards!
