Hogwarts Legacy PS4 release date: A goblin can be seen

If you are watching everyone enjoying their time in Hogwarts but are stuck on last-gen consoles, you may be wondering when the Hogwarts Legacy PS4 release date is? After all not everyone has been able to make the upgrade to PS5 just yet.

Hogwarts Legacy PS4 release date

The Hogwarts Legacy PS4 release date is set for May 5, 2023. The version was initially delayed to focus on polishing and getting them ready in time after the initial release.

This delay was announced back in December last year and then another delay was announced in March 2023, pushing the game back another month on PS4. Hogwarts Legacy is an extremely ambitious game and getting it ready to release on far less powerful hardware is a tough task. But, releasing a few months after the release on other platforms should give Avalanche enough time to polish up the experience and improve it for the console.

Hopefully, we won’t see any further delays and the Hogwarts Legacy PS4 release date can arrive on time. If you want to find out what we thought of the game, then be sure to check out our Hogwarts Legacy review.

Hogwarts Legacy has drawn considerable criticism during its development, largely due to the fact that the creator of the Harry Potter series, J.K. Rowling, has made a number of transphobic remarks on social media in recent years.

While Avalanche has confirmed that J.K. Rowling is not “directly involved” in the development of Hogwarts Legacy, it is working with “her team” and Portkey Games, a Warner Bros. label dedicated to launching new experiences inspired by J.K. Rowling’s original stories. It is currently unclear whether she will earn any royalties from the game’s sale, but it is likely given it is based on her original body of work.
