Revealed more than a year ago, Hogwarts Legacy, the new game set in the world of Harry Potter, still remains in the dark. In fact, since the announcement, Warner Bros. and Avalanche Software have not talked about it much, if not a few months ago when they revealed a delay to next year. But considering that 2022 is very close, when can we expect to get our hands on the game? Apparently it seems that the release window of Hogwarts Legacy is set after April 2022.
Hogwarts Legacy Release Window Leaked?
In a recent interview with Toy World magazine, Rachel Wakley, general manager of Warner Bros., was asked what the 2022 of JK Rowling’s Wizarding World franchise will be like. On this occasion, Wakley said that the next Fantastic Beasts movie and Hogwarts Legacy title will be the two big news of the next year 2022 for the IP, also suggesting that the game will be released after the movie, whose debut is scheduled for April 2022.
“We have two major releases; a film and a game, that will be sure to generate incredible excitement amongst fans,” says Wakley. “The first is the film release of Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore, now announced to be releasing on the 8th of April in the UK. The third installment is sure to be a real fan favorite.”
“The second major release of 2022 will be a new console game: Hogwarts Legacy. The reaction to the trailer for this has been amazing and it looks set to be a huge success. We know that gaming is such an important part of the market and one that we have to be involved in. From what we’ve seen, the launch will be well worth the wait and will deliver a unique way for fans to interact with the franchise,” Wakley concluded.
Hogwarts Legacy will be released on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S sometime in 2022.
