WB Games’ Hogwarts Legacy has been confirmed for release for PS, Xbox, PC, and Switch, but recent developments with Gotham Knights, also under WB Games, have led fans to speculate on whether the Harry Potter Universe game will be released on all these platforms as previously announced.
As two of the most anticipated games of 2022, both Gotham Knights and Hogwarts Legacy have a strong fan following due to the existing fandoms, and players are excited to experience the gameplay. However, WB Games recently announced that they would not be releasing Gotham Knight on the platforms of PlayStation 4 or Xbox One consoles so that players could have “the best possible gameplay experience”.
Does Gotham Knight’s Announcement Affect Hogwarts Legacy?
Players have been concerned whether Hogwarts Legacy may be similarly affected, but there is no reason to worry, as the official announcement has already been made that Hogwarts Legacy will be released for all popular gaming platforms as mentioned.
While focusing on specific platforms would allow WB Games to flesh out the game with more details, it would be limited to only the players who own the most recent versions of Xbox/PS and PC. On the other hand, with a wider release on a variety of hardware, more players will be able to play the game and allow the devs to capture a massive player base that is not restricted to certain platforms.
When is the Release Date for Hogwarts Legacy?
Hogwarts Legacy has already been delayed quite a lot, with players having waited for a new trailer for more than a year. The game allows players to immerse themselves into the HP Universe, studying at Hogwarts, the School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, and uncovering mysteries about the Wizarding World as they explore the game.
The game has already been the center of controversies mainly due to the author of the Harry Potter books, who most fans have distanced themselves from due to her trans-exclusionary views. It is speculated that the game will be released in late 2022, so fans of the Harry Potter Universe will have to wait a little longer to receive their letter of acceptance from Hogwarts and be able to delve into the magical world.
