While no specific release date was announced, The Verge, in a report, revealed that the game was first introduced last year during a PlayStation 5 event and takes place in the 1800s, well before the events of the films and novels transpire.
Avalanche Software, the team behind Disney Infinity, is developing Hogwarts Legacy. It is being overseen by Portkey Games. When launched, Hogwarts Legacy will be available across PC, PS5, PS4, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X.
As per a report in Tech Radar, rumours of a Harry Potter RPG first emerged in 2018 when a Redditor leaked footage of the game. Although the clip was quickly removed by Warner Bros, eagle-eyed fans recognised the milieu as being Hogwarts, various creatures and a character creator.
