Hogwarts Legacy is one of the most anticipated upcoming games. Set in the familiar wizarding world and giving us a glimpse at the school of Hogwarts decades before the events of Harry Potter, the RPG is expected to offer a lot of player choice, from which lessons you can take, to how you spend your time outside of the classroom.

Announced in 2020, the game has suffered some setbacks due to the COVID-19 pandemic, pushing the Hogwarts Legacy release date back. However, development has continued and news is expected before the year is out to satiate everyone’s appetites. This will be the first big-budget Harry Potter game for consoles since the final movie tie-in game for the PS3 and Xbox 360, released all the way back in 2011.

Continue reading on to find out what we know about the Hogwarts Legacy release date, story, and activities you can get up to with your fellow classmates.

Hogwarts Legacy Release Date

Hogwarts Legacy is set to release sometime in 2022. The game was originally expected to release in 2021 but was delayed, most likely due to development struggles during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Warner Brothers has also hinted that the game may come out in the second half of 2022, after the third Fantastic Beasts film has released.

Hogwarts Legacy Platforms

Hogwarts Legacy will release on PS5, PS4, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and PC when it comes out in 2022.


Very little is known about Hogwarts Legacy’s story and narrative right now. However, the game is set in the late 1800s and follows the player’s own custom student. This student will choose which Hogwarts House they are in and attend classes at Hogwarts.

From there, they can also explore the surrounding areas of Hogwarts, including the Forbidden Forest and Hogsmeade Village, to meet people, learn spells, tame beasts, and take on threats that are facing the wizarding school.

Hogwarts Legacy will also feature a morality system, although it isn’t clear if this will affect the wider story or just smaller moments throughout your adventures in Hogwarts.

There will be a lot of different activities for you to take part in when it comes to Hogwarts Legacy. As mentioned, you will explore not only Hogwarts, but the surrounding areas and famous locations from the movies and books as well.

As a student you will take part in lessons to learn new abilities and combat spells, allowing you to take on tougher enemies and solve new puzzles throughout the world.

As we haven’t seen gameplay yet, it is hard to grasp how the activities within the open-world will be structured. But, based on similar games, you can expect dungeons with bosses and collectibles to hunt down.
