Hogwarts Legacy report warns game is in ‘trouble’
A new report on Hogwarts Legacy — the highly anticipated Harry Potter game currently slated for release this year via the PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series S and Xbox Series X – warns that the game is “in some kind of trouble” and may be delayed to 2023. This new Le report comes on the heels of a handful of rumors and reports suggesting the game was due out this year and could surface during a PlayStation State of Play rumor in February.
The report comes the way of PlayStation insider and Sacred Symbols host, Colin Moriarty, who notes that he “heard backstage that [the] the game isn’t coming out this year.” Unfortunately, that’s more or less the extent of the report. Moriarty reveals he’s been looking forward to the game, but from what he’s hearing he needs a little more time in the oven.
If true, it seems unlikely that WB Games will resurface the game during a PlayStation State of Play in February. In the meantime, if the game were to be postponed until 2023, that wouldn’t be a good sign. Due to the pandemic, many games suffered and were delayed, but Hogwarts Legacy was originally slated for 2021. Slipping two years out wouldn’t be the best look. That said, this speculation assumes the report is accurate. Moriarty is widely regarded as a reliable source, however, not only does this not negate the fact that this is unofficial variety information and subject to change, but that it contradicts previous and recent reports. about the game that claimed it was coming out this year and get a second trailer soon.
