While Hogwarts Legacy has been out for some time on PS5, Xbox Series X/S, and PC, it has been delayed once more on PS4 and Xbox One to May 5, 2023.
The news was shared on Hogwarts Legacy’s Twitter account and it was confirmed that the original April 4 date for PS4 and Xbox One was just not enough time for the team to deliver the “best possible experience.”
“We’re overwhelmed with gratitude for the response to Hogwarts Legacy from fans around the globe,” Hogwarts Legacy’s Twitter wrote. “The team is working hard to deliver the best possible experience on all platforms and we need more time to do this. Hogwarts Legacy will launch for PS4 and Xbox One May 5, 2023.”
There was no mention of the Nintendo Switch version in this post, so it appears it is still on track to be released on July 25, 2023.
In our Hogwarts Legacy review, we said, in “nearly every way,” it is “the Harry Potter RPG I’ve always wanted to play.” However, we did note it was “certainly weighed down by technical issues, a lackluster main story, and some poor enemy variety, but even those couldn’t come close to breaking its enchanting spell over me.” It’s possible these technical issues were a bigger issue on last-gen hardware.
Since it was released on February 10, Hogwarts Legacy has sold over 12 million units and has become the biggest launch ever for Warner Bros. Games. Despite the success, developer Avalanche Software recently told IGN that there are no plans for DLC for their Wizarding World RPG.
