Warner Bros announced that Hogwarts Legacy, one of the most anticipated games of the year, is now targeting a release in 2022. According to the studio, the Harry Potter title was delayed to allow for more development time with the game.

The reason really is none other than that,

As Warner Bros explained, their development team plans to create the best possible experience for fans of the Harry Potter franchise, so they will give the game the time it needs.

Hogwart Legacy will be the first exploration and open-world RPG set in the Harry Potter universe. As you can see in the trailer, the game will allow you to investigate the map as you want and explore much of the magical world. As the story progresses, some of the characters created by JK Rowling will appear, as well as a wide variety of monsters and different dangers.

In addition,

The game will put us in the shoes of a Hogwarts student, who has the key to an ancient secret that threatens to destroy the magical world. On our way, we must make allies, fight dark wizards, and decide the fate of Hogwarts.

Initially, Warner expected to release the title in 2021, so it would not be surprising that the COVID-19 pandemic was partly to blame for this delay. While we still have many things to learn about the game for example, if it will have multiplayer) we know that it will be available for PS5, PC, and Xbox Series X / S.
