Hogwarts Legacy: The title developed by Avalanche was officially announced during the PS5 presentation, but it has been in development for years. The doors to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry won’t open until next year. Rumors about the long-awaited video game that Warner Bros. Games is preparing have not stopped coming out in the last few hours, but the studio has come up against the media runrun to publish a brief but concise message on social networks: there will be no news about Hogwarts Legacy until 2022, which at this point is quite logical, considering that there are only a few days left until the Christmas holidays begin.
“Happy Holidays from the Avalanche team!” They write. “We are excited to share more news and updates on Hogwarts Legacy next year.” Therefore, we will have to wait until 2022 to find out if there is indeed a planned multiplayer mode, a rumor that has just been leaked online and has not been officially confirmed.

The adventure begins at Hogwarts
Hogwarts Legacy is an adventure with RPG elements in which we will manage a school student, who must live a magical journey that will take him to learn spells, solve enigmas and fight against fearsome enemies. The game will transport us beyond the castle walls to enjoy iconic settings from the saga created by J.K. Rowling.
This Warner Bros. Games Avalanche-designed production has been in development for years for PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, and PC. The first images and video sequences were leaked in 2018, but their official announcement did not occur until 2020, when the PlayStation 5 was presented to the public. It was initially planned for 2021, but the study announced that it needed more development time, so they delayed it until next year. However, the specific release date has yet to be defined.
The magical universe of Harry Potter will expand even more with the premiere of Fantastic Animals: The Secrets of Dumbledore, which will be released in theaters on April 8.
