Originally, Hogwarts Legacy was set to release sometime in 2021, with a couple of delays pushing it back to a holiday 2022 window. However, in an August 12 tweet, Avalanche Software and WB Games informed Hogwarts fans that the game will be delayed further. Instead of the holiday season of 2022, Hogwarts Legacy will instead be released on February 10, 2023.

The release date may be farther away than originally anticipated, but the good news is that we have already received a good amount of info regarding Hogwarts Legacy. The development team gave us a look at the various classes you can take, how the open-world structure of the game worked, the numerous spells and potions you could use, and how you can use a broomstick to explore the game. The footage shared during the State of Play showed off 14 minutes of in-game footage.

Hogwarts Legacy is set to release on February 10, 2023, for PlayStation 4 and 5, the Xbox One and Series X, and for PC. A Nintendo Switch release date has not been determined as of this writing. The project is being developed by Avalanche Software, which previously worked on the Disney Infinity series and many other Disney-related video games, such as Cars, Toy Story 3, and Bolt.
