Hogwarts Legacy will be released in December

In March, we got our first good look at Hogwarts Legacy in action via a dedicated State of Play stream. During the gameplay reveal, the developers confirmed a “holiday 2022” release window. Now we can have a more precise release date.

The Hogwarts Legacy PSN listing was recently updated with a December 6 release date. Recently, as VGC pointed out, an Amazon listing for an upcoming artbook for the game was also updated with a December release date. Typically, artbooks for major video game releases arrive around the same time as the game itself.

Hogwarts Legacy is set in the late 1800s, with a new cast of professors and students seeking to protect the school from an alliance between goblins and dark wizards. As previously promised, players will be able to create their own characters, take classes, brew potions, learn new spells, and explore the entire castle and surrounding area.

When the game releases, it will be heading to current and next-gen Xbox and PlayStation consoles, as well as PC. A port for the Nintendo Switch is also planned for a later date.

KitGuru says: With God of War: Ragnarök arriving in November and Hogwarts Legacy being a big PS5 partner title, that December release date seems likely.
