For those worried about Hogwarts Legacy and its development progress, here are more details about its delay, and whether it affects your platform of choice.

Hogwarts Legacy is set to break record sales amidst major controversy and backlash, being one of 2023’s most anticipated releases. Harry Potter fans have been waiting for an open Wizarding World game for many years, and while their wishes may be coming true, it’s been a long wait.

The game was originally set for 2021 but was then delayed until 2022. Hogwarts Legacy was then delayed for a third time, with the new release date being February 10, 2023.

That said, players may have to wait longer, as Avalanche Software, unfortunately, revealed that there would be more delays for the game on certain platforms, as well as details regarding the release date on Steam not sitting right with players.

Here’s everything we know about the Hogwarts Legacy delay.

Hogwarts Legacy delay

The launch of Hogwarts Legacy on PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch has officially been delayed. For the previous generation of consoles, the game has been delayed to April 4, 2023, while the Nintendo Switch version has been pushed back to July 25, 2023.

No doubt this will be extremely disappointing for those waiting for the game to release on these platforms, especially as there are still so many without the next generation of consoles.

Hogwarts Legacy release date change on Steam

Currently, Hogwarts Legacy remains on track for February 10, 2023, on PS5, Xbox Series S/X, and PC.

That said, fears are brewing regarding yet another delay, as fans noticed that the release date on Steam has changed to “Coming Soon,” as opposed to February 10, 2023.

This has left players “extremely concerned” that there will be another delay to Hogwart Legacy’s release. This will be devastating, especially for those who are eligible to play the game early.

However, players are assuring others that this is just a “Steam bug that happens sometimes when [a] game is near launch.” If this is true, then players have nothing to worry about.

If any more news regarding another Hogwarts Legacy delay, we’ll be sure to update this piece.
