Hogwarts Legacy is a game a lot of people have been waiting for - for a long time, too! Set in the 1800s, this is going to be an open-world game that lets you become a Wizard or Witch in the Wizarding World brought to life by the Harry Potter series and the more-recent Fantastic Beasts movies. It could be fantastic if it's done right and we can't wait to learn more about it. But... When does it come out? We're still waiting on a release date for Hogwarts Legacy, aren't we?

Yes, we are - however, the news we are waiting for could be arriving sooner than you might think. Here's what we know...

When is Hogwarts Legacy coming out?

At the moment, all we know is that Hogwarts Legacy has been pushed back to a release date sometime in 2022. Here's what the team had to say earlier this year - in January...

" We would like to thank fans from around the world on the tremendous reaction to the announcement of Hogwarts Legacy from our Portkey Games label. Creating the best possible experience for all the Wizarding World and gaming fans is paramount to us so we're fiving the game the time it needs.
"Hogwarts Legacy will be released in 2022."

When could we find out more information?

We could get something more specific from Portkey Games a lot sooner than you might think. PlayStation is hosting a State of Play presentation later today and it's all about updates from third-party games. Hogwarts Legacy fits the bill and the previous history between Hogwarts Legacy announcements and PlayStation would suggest that we'd learn more about it through them - if not Portkey Games themselves.

The State of Play presentation is due to start at the following times:

  • 14:00 October 27th PST

It's worth keeping an eye on Hogwarts Legacy's social media channels alongside PlayStation's social media channels. We're surely due an update at some point...
