The new Harry Potter game Hogwarts Legacy is set to come next year on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series S, and Xbox Series X. WB Games hasn't announced when the game will be released in 2022, but it appears to be no earlier than May 1. In a recent interview, Warner Bros. general manager Rachel Wakley seemed to imply that the new game will be the franchise's second major release in 2022, following the upcoming Fantastic Beasts film in April.
"We have two major releases; a film and a game, that will be sure to generate incredible excitement amongst fans," said Wakley. "The first is the film release of Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore, now announced to be releasing on the 8th of April in the UK. The third instalment is sure to be a real fan favourite. The second major release of 2022 will be a new console game: Hogwarts Legacy. The reaction to the trailer for this has been amazing and it looks set to be a huge success. We know that gaming is such an important part of the market and one that we must be involved in. From what we've seen, the launch will be well worth the wait and will deliver a unique way for fans to interact with the franchise."
Because the terminology is now so ambiguous, this conclusion should be taken with a grain of salt. However, if any of the parties involved provide any form of update or remark on the matter, we will make sure to update the storey accordingly.
Hogwarts Legacy will be available on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series S, and Xbox Series X sometime next year, likely after April.
"Hogwarts Legacy is an immersive, open-world action RPG set in the world first introduced in the Harry Potter books," reads an official pitch of the game. "Now you can take control of the action and be at the center of your own adventure in the wizarding world. Embark on a journey through familiar and new locations as you explore and discover fantastic beasts, customize your character and craft potions, master spell casting, upgrade talents, and become the wizard you want to be."
