Hogwarts Legacy — the following Harry Potter recreation — has been delayed from 2021 to 2022. On Wednesday, Hogwarts Legacy developer Avalanche Software and Portkey Games (the Harry Potter online game publishing label owned by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment) introduced that they want extra time to ship the “best possible experience”. As such, Hogwarts Legacy has been pushed again a 12 months. Hogwarts Legacy is about within the titular faculty within the 1800s, a century earlier than the Chosen One — Harry Potter, duh — ever lived.
“We would like to thank fans from around the world on the tremendous reaction to the announcement of Hogwarts Legacy from our Portkey Games label,” Hogwarts Legacy makers stated in a ready assertion on Twitter. “Creating the best possible experience for all of the Wizarding World and gaming fans is paramount to us so we are giving the game the time it needs. Hogwarts Legacy will be released in 2022.”
The open-world motion RPG Hogwarts Legacy was originally introduced again in September. Avalanche revealed then that gamers would step into the sneakers of “a student who holds the key to an ancient secret that threatens to tear the Wizarding World apart. You have received a late acceptance to the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry and soon discover that you are no ordinary student: you possess an unusual ability to perceive and master Ancient Magic.”
For Utah, USA-based Avalanche, Hogwarts Legacy is the largest challenge it has taken on in its historical past. Best identified for growing the Disney Infinity sequence in latest instances, Avalanche was closed after Disney shuttered Disney Interactive Studios in 2016. But then a 12 months later, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment acquired and renewed the flame. Avalanche Software is to not be confused with Avalanche Studios, the Swedish developer behind Just Cause 4.
