HOGWARTS Legacy, the Harry Potter game that allows anyone to enroll in Hogwarts, has been postponed for the second time.
Leaked footage first surfaced in 2018 showing the wizarding school.
It was officially unveiled in 2020, promising fans that they would receive their invitation to join Harry Potter’s school before the end of next year.
However, as the end of 2021 neared, publisher WB Games announced that the game was far from finished, but that Hogwarts Legacy would be available by the next bank holiday.
Things looked promising in March when PlayStation hosted a State of Play dedicated solely to the upcoming Harry Potter title, but it wasn’t to be.
Hogwarts Legacy has been postponed again, with the new release date being set for February 10, 2023.
Fans who have been waiting for this release for more than two years have been devastated by the news.
On social media, many of them haven’t been shy about hiding their feelings.
One Twitter user wrote: “Why drop Quidditch from Hogwarts Legacy and then push it back to 2023? For heaven’s sake. The only thing I was looking forward to this year.
“Warner Bros., why make a Hogwarts game without Quidditch? You’ve seriously gone downhill.”
Another fan was suspicious this would be the end: “Pretty naive of you to think this will be the final delay.”
Others believe the delay is just to avoid competition from 2022’s highly anticipated God of War Ragnarök.
One user said: “Hogwarts Legacy has been delayed. Kinda shocked about this one.
“We have seen a lot. Think it’s one of those lags like ‘Let’s dodge God of War’.”
Some have understood the repeated delays and simply want to get the best game possible.
Another user said: “While I’m disappointed with the delay for Hogwarts Legacy, the reason given is the right one: to ensure the quality of the greatest title they’ve made to date.
“I’m sure it was an incredibly difficult decision, but I applaud the team for having the courage to make it.”
