Release date

The only date given at the PS5 Showcase for Hogwarts Legacy was 2021.

TROLL IN THE DUNGEON: Thought you ought to know

With a currently untitled third Fantastic Beasts film due out in late 2021, our guess is a Summer 2021 release date.

PS5 exclusive?

The game may have debuted on a PS Showcase, but it is not a Sony exclusive.

Hogwarts Legacy will be available on the Xbox family too, as well as PC.

Is Harry Potter in the game?

The gameplay and cinematic footage saw us travel back to Hogwarts in the 1800s.

It appears to be an open-world game, with a big theme of defining the future of Hogwarts through your actions!

It doesn't appear that Harry Potter will be making an appearance, especially as he wasn't born in the 1800s, however, it's still not clear as to whether the time of the game stays within this period or not.

Could we see the game moving through time, and showing how our decisions shape Hogwarts first hand?

So many possibilities!
