Hogwarts Legacy: Release Date, Platforms, Gameplay & More

Everything we know about upcoming Harry Potter RPG.


Back in September last year, Warner Bros. Interactive announced Hogwarts Legacy, the upcoming Harry Potter game. There were already rumors on the new Harry Potter game a while before the official announcement. It’s obvious that Avalanche Software has been working on the game for years.

Harry Potter fans are desperately waiting for any new information on the development of Hogwarts Legacy. In this post, we’ve gathered all the information on Hogwarts Legacy, i.e., Release Date, Platforms, etc. So, without any further ado, let’s get started.

Hogwarts Legacy Release Date

It’s confirmed that Hogwarts Legacy will be released in 2022. Warner Bros. Interactive initially planned to release the open-world Harry Potter game in 2021. However, the studio recently announced that the Hogwarts Legacy release date has been pushed back to 2022.

The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic impacted the development process of several video games. It’s possible that the Hogwarts Legacy release date was delayed for the same reason.

Platforms: Is Hogwarts Legacy PS5 Exclusive?

No, Hogwarts Legacy is not a PS5 exclusive. Instead, Hogwarts Legacy will be released on old and current-gen consoles, i.e., PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S. Other than that, the open-world RPG Harry Potter title will come out for PC.

Hogwarts Legacy Gameplay

Hogwarts Legacy is an open-world role-playing game where players can explore several magical quests. Set in 1800s, Hogwarts Legacy will allow players to learn new casting spells and grow their magical potential.

While working on their abilities, the players will have to stop an ancient magical entity from rising into power.

Like Harry Potter movies, you’ll be in one of the four houses, i.e., Gryffindor, Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw, and Slytherin. Other than that, you’d have to attend classes to learn new techniques. You won’t level up in the game if you’re too lazy to learn.

Players can explore the different areas in Hogwarts castle. Moreover, they can choose to go out and discover new places, like the Forbidden Forest.

Of course, players will have to go against powerful entities and beasts with their magical spells. It’s still unclear how Hogwarts Legacy’s combat system will work.

Will Harry Potter Be in Hogwarts Legacy?

Unfortunately, that’s a NO. Harry potter will not be in an open-world Hogwarts Legacy video game. As we’ve already stated, WB’s Hogwarts Legacy will be set in 1800s, an era when Harry Potter doesn’t exist.

Can You Be Evil In Hogwarts Legacy?

According to the developers, players can write their own legacy in the upcoming Harry Potter RPG game. In short, players can choose between being “evil” and “good,” depending upon their in-game choices.

Is J.K. Rowling Involved In Hogwarts Legacy?

The short answer to this question is NO. According to Warner Bros., “J.K. Rowling isn’t directly involved in the creation of the game.” But J.K. Rowling’s books have been an inspiration for everything you’ll see in Hogwarts Legacy.

That’s it; this is all we know about Hogwarts Legacy as of now. However, we’ll update this post as soon as we hear something more about WB’s upcoming Harry Potter game.
