For the past year, Hogwarts Legacy has been very quiet, so much so that rumors suggested that the release could be pushed back to 2023. According to Wizarding World, this is not the case and the action RPG in the Harry Potter universe is expected this year.
In September 2020, the Avalanche Software studio announced the development of Hogwarts Legacy and the title quickly aroused a certain enthusiasm among players: not only is the license obviously very popular and the game invites to (re)discover the universe of Harry Potter and his school of wizards a little more than a century before the events of the saga, but the gameplay of the RPG also promises a certain freedom of action, whether it is in the construction of his character, to tackle the narrative plot of the title or to explore the game world.
However, Hogwarts Legacy also raises doubts. The release of the game was first announced for 2021, before being postponed to 2022, and the developer is mostly very discreet about the content of its RPG. Hogwarts Legacy was supposed to be unveiled at the Game Awards late last year, before Avalanche Software backed out of it, and rumor had it that the release might be pushed back again, this time to 2023. Today, we are still waiting for more details about the game’s content and it is rumored that a presentation could finally be planned for early February.
In the meantime and in this context, it’s via the Wizarding World platform (the official portal dedicated to the Harry Potter license) that some news about Hogwarts Legacy are filtering out: in a long publication detailing the main events related to the license that will take place in 2022, the portal tends to confirm a release of Hogwarts Legacy this year.
The Hogwarts Legacy video game will be released this year
2022 is also the year in which the Hogwarts Legacy game is scheduled to be released. Developed by Avalanche Software, this action RPG allows players to be at the center of their own adventure in the wizarding world of the late 1800s. From learning powerful spells and concocting potions to honing combat skills and taming magical creatures, the game will allow players to experience the wizarding world as a student at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry in a way never before possible, while influencing the fate of the entire wizarding world.

If the release of the game is indeed still planned for this year, we bet that Hogwarts Legacy will gradually reveal its content more concretely in the weeks and months to come.
