Hogwarts Legacy Initial Release Date was delayed from 2021 to 2022 and then in 2023, the last-gen versions of Hogwarts Legacy have been delayed once more.
Hogwarts Legacy, which allows players to control their own student at Harry Potter’s most famous school, has been delayed yet again for Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
Moving forward even further to 2023. Unfortunately for fans hoping for an early 2023 release, it appears that developer Avalanche Software has decided that the last-gen version of the game needs to cook a little longer.
Some potential wizards were already skeptical of Hogwarts Legacy’s release date due to its previous delays from 2021 to 2022, and then from 2022 to early 2023, and this most recent delay may fuel further concerns that the game will struggle to meet its current release date of February 10, 2023.
At this point, players have seen quite a bit of Hogwarts Legacy gameplay via trailers and streams, and even when it was advertising a “Holiday 2022” release date, Hogwarts Legacy appeared to be coming together rather well – at least for PS5, PC, and Xbox Series X|S owners.
Hogwarts Legacy will launch on April 4, 2023 for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One and on July 25, 2023 for Nintendo Switch. The team is looking forward to bringing you the game and we want to deliver the best possible game experience across all platforms.— Hogwarts Legacy (@HogwartsLegacy) December 13, 2022
Switch Release Date
Although this news will undoubtedly disappoint PS4 and Xbox One owners, it is the first time a release date for Hogwarts Legacy on the Nintendo Switch has been announced.
Because Switch ports are sometimes released more than a year after other consoles, it’s good to know a portable version of the new Harry Potter game will be released in 2023 – assuming the July 25 release date isn’t also delayed.
If you were hoping for a handheld version of the game sooner, Hogwarts Legacy will still be available on Steam on February 10.
Although the game has not yet been confirmed as Steam Deck verified, playing Hogwarts Legacy on Steam Deck may be the only portable Harry Potter gaming option until at least July.

Release Dates for Hogwarts Legacy
Here are all of the current release dates for Hogwarts Legacy, taking each delay into account:
|Feb 10, 2023||PlayStation 5|
Xbox Series X|S
|Apr 4, 2023||PlayStation 4|
|Jul 25, 2023||Nintendo Switch|
Many will be disappointed by Hogwarts Legacy’s last-gen push into the middle of next year, but delays of this nature have become increasingly common in recent years, with many studios having to consider more variables than usual.
It’s unclear whether this is the final Hogwarts Legacy delay, but a firm date is more likely than a wider release window at this point. With luck, the Hogwarts Legacy release date schedule will be something fans can look forward to in the coming year.
