Earlier this week we published a report discussing rumours of internal turmoil and setbacks that would likely lead to a delay in the game’s 2022 release window. According to a blog post published on the official Harry Potter universe, Wizarding World, however, the highly anticipated Hogwarts Legacy is still slated for release sometime this year, despite the recent rumours suggesting otherwise.
“The Hogwarts Legacy video game will be arriving this year 2022 is also the year when the highly anticipated console game from Warner Bros. Games’ Portkey Games label, Hogwarts Legacy, is set to be released. Developed by Avalanche Software, this action RPG allows players to be at the centre of their own adventure set during the late 1800s wizarding world. From learning powerful spells and brewing potions, to honing combat skills and taming magical beasts, this game will allow players to experience the magical world as a student at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry like never before as they determine the fate of the entire wizarding world.”
In addition, trusted leaker AccountNGT has taken to Twitter to insist that any issues potentially going on behind the scenes are not enough to delay the upcoming RPG and that it is indeed, still on track for a 2022 release.
Finally, in a Twitter thread showcasing Warner Brothers published games launching in 2022, WB Brazil’s official Twitter account shared this:
