When we said that this week was the week of postponements, we weren’t lying. Given that the financial statements are falling one after the other, the end-of-year calendar is changing a lot, and today we are being told of a major postponement. Despite its promise to release in 2022, Hogwarts Legacy will be late. It’s not surprising given the radio silence around the game, but it’s now official, it won’t happen this year. However, this bad news hides good news.
When will Hogwarts Legacy be released?

It’s now official, don’t wait any longer Hogwarts Legacy for this year. We find out via a tweet announcing the news, warning us that the team needs more time to polish the game.
But we still have good news in all of this, since a real release date was shared in stride. Hogwarts Legacy will therefore be available from February 10, 2023 on Xbox and PlayStation consoles as well as on PC..
It is therefore ultimately a small postponement, since we imagined that the title would be released at the end of November / beginning of December. One would think that he avoids this complicated period to avoid rubbing shoulders with competition, such as that of God of War Ragnarokbut we learn that the Switch version is postponed to an even further and unknown dateso everything suggests that the team really needed more time.
When can we expect to see Hogwarts Legacy again?
Now that we know it won’t arrive this year, but in February 2023, we imagine that we should quickly review the game. We assume that we won’t have to wait for the Game Awards in December, and that the game will soon introduce itself some more.
Inevitably, the most credible hypothesis is that of a PlayStation Showcase. Rumors speak of a conference around Septemberand since the game is closely linked to the PlayStation universe since its special State of Play, we can imagine that it will make an appearance again in a Sony show.
We are also thinking of the Gamescom Opening Night live, which will take place in about ten days. It would be a good place to present a new trailer, but if there really is a PlayStation Showcase in the pipeline, we would bet on the latter instead.
