Hogwarts Legacy PS4 & Xbox One release delayed again

The PS4 and Xbox One release of Hogwarts Legacy has been delayed again, pushing the already hugely popular Harry Potter game back an April release on last generation consoles to 5th May 2023.

Writing on Twitter, the team said, “We’re overwhelmed with gratitude for the response to Hogwarts Legacy from fans around the globe. 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.”

The Nintendo Switch version of Hogwarts Legacy is still scheduled for a July release date.

Hogwarts Legacy is out on PS5, Xbox Series X|S and PC, and it’s been a huge success for Warner Bros. and developer Avalanche Software, selling 12 million copies in its first two weeks on sale. That number would surely have been much higher had the game managed to release on all its development platforms at the same time, but that’s still a very impressive figure and shows the continuing appeal of the Harry Potter setting.

In our Hogwarts Legacy review, we said, “The sights and sounds alone make Hogwarts Legacy the dream Harry Potter game fans have been longing for. There’s an intriguing mystery to unravel, though you’re bound to spend most of your time exploring a wealth of side content, visiting virtual landmarks and roleplaying as a Hogwarts student. That said, it’s more successful in being a sandbox teeming with nostalgia rather than a stand-out action RPG in its own right, let down by gameplay foibles and spellcasting combat that quickly slides into repetition.”
