A new release window has been revealed!

JK Rowling Harry Potter WB Games Hogwarts Legacy

Warner Bros has revealed a new release window for its upcoming Harry Potter game, Hogwarts Legacy.

In late 2020, Warner Bros revealed the first trailer for its upcoming video game, Hogwarts Legacy which takes place in the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. The project had long been rumored to be in development before it was officially revealed. Unfortunately, the video game announcement came as bitter-sweet to some as only a few months earlier Harry Potter creator J.K. Rowling revealed herself to be transphobic. While Warner Bros and the developers of the game have not flat out condemned her views, they have gone out of their way to distance themselves from it.

Initially, Hogwarts Legacy was revealed to have a 2021 release window but was delayed to an unknown date. In a recent posting on Wizarding World.com, Warner Bros revealed that the game will be released sometime in 2022. It did not, however, specify which quarter it would be released in.

Hogwarts Legacy is being developed by Avalanche Software and Portkey Games and published by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment. An open-world action RPG, the game takes place in the 1800s and the player will take control of a witch or wizard who will begin a dangerous journey to uncover a dark secret in the Wizarding World. It is currently unknown how many years the player will be at Hogwarts in the game.

The next theatrical installment in the franchise, Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore is being directed by David Yates from a screenplay written by JK Rowling and Steve Kloves. The film stars Eddie Redmayne, Katherine Waterston, Dan Fogler, Alison Sudol, Ezra Miller, Callum Turner, William Nadylam, Poppy Corby-Tuech, Jessica Williams, Jude Law, and Mads Mikkelsen.

Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore is currently scheduled for an April 15, 2022 release. Stay tuned for all the latest news surrounding the upcoming Harry Potter Hogwarts Legacy game and be sure to subscribe to Heroic Hollywood’s YouTube channel for more original video content.
