The release date for the highly anticipated Harry Potter game, Hogwarts Legacy, has been revealed.
In 2020, it was finally confirmed that a AAA Harry Potter video game was on the way from Avalanche Software after footage leaked a couple of years prior. Hogwarts Legacy will transport players to the 19th century, where they will get sorted into a house as a fifth-year student, explore the legendary caste, and unlock dark secrets.
Hogwarts Legacy was initially slated to arrive in 2021 but was later pushed to 2022. The upcoming Harry Potter game has now been delayed once again, but it finally has a solidified release date. On Twitter, it was revealed that Hogwarts Legacy will be available to play on February 10, 2023.
What’s Next For The Harry Potter Franchise?
Hogwarts Legacy marks the next big project from the Wizarding World franchise. While Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore earned a modest $405 million worldwide, there’s no word from Warner Bros. on if the series will continue. Two more films in the Fantastic Beasts franchise were initially planned.
Similar to what’s happening with DC, the Harry Potter franchise could undergo some major changes as well. Warner Bros. Discovery CEO David Zaslav is looking to get more Wizarding World projects in the works and has even met with J.K. Rowling, who has come under fire from fans for her views on the transgender community over the years.
Here is the official synopsis for Hogwarts Legacy:
“Experience a new story set at Hogwarts in the 1800s. Your character is a student who holds the key to an ancient secret that threatens to tear the wizarding world apart. Make allies, battle Dark wizards and decide the fate of the wizarding world.”
Hogwarts Legacy is set to be released on February 10, 2023 for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X, Xbox One, and PC. Stay tuned for all the latest news on the Harry Potter franchise, and subscribe to Heroic Hollywood’s YouTube channel for more original video content.
