Last we heard, Hogwarts Legacy, a Harry Potter RPG set in the Victorian-era version of the Wizarding School, was due out around Christmas 2022. However, publisher Warner Bros. has revealed the final Hogwarts Legacy release date, and we have bad news.
Yes, the Harry Potter game has been put on hold again and will not graduate in 2022. Instead, the Hogwarts Legacy release date is February 10, 2023. And if you want to play Xbox Series X, PS5, or PC. Bad news for Nintendo Switch fans.
While Warner Bros. says it is committed to releasing the Nintendo Switch version of Hogwarts Legacy, it can’t say when it will be ready. Considering what the developer revealed at Sony State of Play, it’s not surprising that keeping the open-world RPG running smoothly on Nintendo’s console is proving to be a challenge.

Delay in 2023 can be disappointing for you. Still, personally, with so many upcoming games in the coming months, it’s clearly a relief to take a big game like Hogwarts Legacy a step back. I really want to be able to immerse myself in school life and not feel pressured to finish my campaign just to start playing God of War Ragnarok or Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. (You might think they’re quite a different game from Harry Potter, but I’m allowed to have different tastes.)
While the Hogwarts Legacy Can’t Survive influence of book authorEvery time we’ve seen the game in action, we’ve been impressed. While the old Playstation games were a joy, they fell short in comparison to the vast scope of Hogwarts Legacy. As well as a whole suite of skills you’ll be able to train your young wizard, combat looks deeper than you might expect, allowing you to create complex combos by layering different styles of spells on top of each other – levitating for example. For this, deactivate enemies before hitting them with fireballs.
While we will have to wait a few months longer than we expected, it looks like 2023 will start off with a strong contender for Game of the Year.
