If you’re a fan of Harry Potter, we have some sad news for you. The highly anticipated Hogwarts Legacy game which was first announced during the PlayStation 5 game’s showcase seems to be late. The publisher of the game – Warner Bros. Games – told that creating the best possible experience is the team’s priority so rushing the game out the door would not work.

Here’s a full statement:

“We would like to thanks fans from around the world on the tremendous reaction to the announcement of Hogwarts Legacy from our Portkey Games label. Creating the best possible experience for all of the Wizarding World and gaming fans is paramount to us so we are giving the game the time it needs.

Hogwarts Legacy will be released in 2022.”

Hogwarts Legacy is being developed by Avalanche Software, a studio known for Disney Infinity games. In case you lived under a rock and haven’t had a chance to learn more about Hogwarts Legacy, or maybe it’s the first time you’re hearing about it, we have a great read here.
