Those looking to grab a wand and explore Hogwarts will have to wait a while. The awesome-looking Harry Potter: Hogwarts Legacy has been delayed to 2022. The game, which was originally announced during the PS5 Future of Gaming event in September 2020, was set to launch sometime this year. However, developer Portkey Games says that they simply need more time to get the game to where they want it to be.
Portkey Games released the official statement on Twitter saying that in order to create the best possible experience for all the Wizarding World and gaming fans, is it important that they get the time they need.

Harry Potter: Hogwarts Legacy is currently in development by Avalanche Software and is published by Portkey Games and Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment. The game is set in the late 1800s and follows students of Hogwarts. Players will get to choose their Hogwarts House and attend classes.
The game is set in a sprawling open-world which includes locations such as the Forbidden Forest, Hogsmeade Village and more. Players will get to live their wizard fantasy as they learn to cast spells, brew potions, tame magical beasts and master other combat abilities. There’s also a morality system in the game.
Unfortunately, players are going to have to wait a while to do everything mentioned above. We suspect Harry Potter: Hogwarts Legacy is the first of many delays coming our way this year.
