Hogwarts Legacy is set to be an open-world game in the Harry Potter universe. You can create a Hogwarts student, enter one of the four houses, and attend classes to level up and master your magical talents. The adventure doesn’t stop on the school grounds, with plenty happening outside of the classrooms and multiple dangers lurking behind every corner. But when will Hogwarts Legacy allow players to inhabit the Wizarding World? Unfortunately, the release date has jumped around a bit.
