Hogwarts Legacy delayed on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, Nintendo Switch release announced

Gamers rejoice! The highly anticipated Hogwarts Legacy will now be available on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on April 4, 2022. In addition, the game's official Twitter account has revealed that the Nintendo Switch version will be released on July 25, 2022.

While the game's developers have not given a reason for the delay on the last-generation versions, they assure fans that the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series versions of the game are still set to launch on February 10, 2022 as planned. The team at Avalanche Software is "looking forward to bringing you the game and want to deliver the best possible game experience across all platforms," according to the tweet.

This marks the second delay for Hogwarts Legacy, which was originally expected to launch during the holiday season this year. However, fans can rest assured that the extra time will be used to perfect the game and deliver an even more magical experience.

Avalanche Software has been slowly revealing different elements of the game, including the Hogsmeade quest and flying broom sections. One of the biggest talking points surrounding Hogwarts Legacy is its connection to J.K. Rowling, the author of the Harry Potter series. Rowling has sparked controversy in recent years over her transphobic comments, but Warner Bros. has stated that she is not directly involved in the game. The studio's leadership said that "she's entitled to express her personal opinion."

In the meantime, fans can continue to eagerly anticipate the release of Hogwarts Legacy and the opportunity to explore the magical world of Hogwarts. With its stunning graphics and immersive gameplay, it's sure to be a hit among gamers of all ages.
