Hogwarts RPG in danger? Bad news for Harry Potter fans

According to a podcast, the upcoming Harry Potter RPG Hogwarts Legacy is “in some kind of trouble.” It’s unclear whether it will be released later this year.

More and more rumors indicate that Hogwarts Legacy will no longer appear in 2022. In a podcast episode of Sacred Symbols industry veteran Colin Moriarty says the Harry Potter RPG may be in serious trouble. He heard that the game should be released “not this year”.

The background is information that he picked up from someone involved in the development of the game. He does not provide evidence and the publisher Warner Bros. Entertainment has not yet commented on the rumor.

Hogwarts Legacy: Release 2022 or 2023?

A few days ago, the Twitter account AccountNGT already pointed out that developer Avalanche Software is currently looking for a localization producer for Hogwarts Legacy. Whether that’s a good sign or a bad one is anyone’s guess – after all, translating a game also takes a while, especially when it’s a blockbuster like Hogwarts Legacy.

In the last few days there have also been rumors about a upcoming PlayStation presentation came to light. Industry insider Tom Henderson, for example, summarizes that the next Sony event will take place in February and will likely be quite big:

“The current rumors suggest that that the next Sony event could take place in February – based on the events that took place this month and on the dates of previous Playstation events. It will probably be a state of play, but it has the potential to be pretty big.”

When exactly Hogwarts Legacy appears, we could find out as early as February. And should the Harry Potter RPG not being featured during the State of Play – well, that would certainly be a sign as well. And not a good one.
