In September 2020, Sony surprised us with the announcement of an open world game based on the Harry Potter universe called ‘Hogwarts: Legacy‘. A precise date for its launch had not been announced, but it would arrive in 2022. Now, that we have already passed half of this year, the studio in charge of its development has announced that will be released on February 10, 2023.
Avalanche Software, whose previous work includes the ‘Disney Infinity’ games, says it needs “a little more time to offer the best possible gaming experience.” In that sense, the studio has been in trouble to fulfill the initial promise of the game’s arrival. However, in this announcement they have promised an exact launch date, although with nuances.

We already know when ‘Hogwarts: Legacy’ will arrive on PlayStation, Xbox and PC
On February 10, 2023, ‘Hogwarts: Legacy’ will arrive at PlayStation, Xbox and computers, although its landing on the Nintendo Switch is also planned, but in the case of the latter Avalanche Software says that it will reveal the release date “soon”. Will it arrive before the other platforms? Will it come later? We still know, although it could presumably come later.
However, we do know some details about the game that we can take into account to liven up the wait. After several years of development, ‘Hogwarts: Legacy’ will use the Unreal Engine graphics engine, so we can expect a promising graphics experience. And to immerse ourselves in this universe we have the previously shared trailer, which simply looks brutal.
And what is known about the argument? Everything will revolve around a goblin rebellion and an alliance with dark wizards. In addition to touring the open world as we please, we will participate in battles, which promise spectacular effects, and we will have at our disposal the customization of spells, different attacks, protections, and other maneuvers to defeat the enemies.
