The events of Hogwarts Legacy will take place in the late 19th century, long before Harry and the other protagonists of the book were born.
The only major character of any significant age who might show up is Dumbledore, and even then he’d be a kid, maybe even a classmate. Either way, you’ll have plenty of room to design your own unique Hogwarts student in the earlier time period, free from the constraints of canon as you go on adventures and learn the ways of old magic.
The release of Hogwarts Legacy comes during a tense period for the wizarding world. Writer J.K. Rowling has increased the frequency and intensity of her public transphobia, while the lackluster reception to the current Fantastic Beasts picture has apparently caused Warner Bros. to reconsider its commitment to the franchise. It is unclear at this time how the Hogwarts Legacy will affect the future of the Harry Potter universe.
Check out the information and screenshots down below for Hogwarts Legacy as well as any tidbits of gossip regarding its release date.
Hogwarts Legacy Release Date
Hogwarts Legacy will finally be available to the public on 10 February 2023. However, contrary to popular belief, Hogwarts Legacy has been delayed twice: the first time, from 2021 to 2022, and the second time, from the holiday season of 2022 to the first quarter of 2023.
Portkey Games announced the latest delay on the Hogwarts Legacy Twitter, writing, “The team is delighted for you to play, but we need a bit more time to create the greatest possible gaming experience.”

Hogwarts Legacy Pre-Order Details
There will be three unique PC releases of Hogwarts Legacy. The Deluxe Edition is identical to the Standard Edition in content but comes with an additional 72 hours of early access. Additionally, the Dark Arts bundle provides the following extras:
Hogwarts Legacy Gameplay
The Hufflepuff common room door is unlocked in a relatively recent look behind the scenes by a precise series of knocks. Wizards and witches sorted into Hufflepuff and Ravenclaw will be able to see their home base for the first time, as neither house’s common room appears in the Harry Potter books except for a few brief passages.
Virtual tours of all four common rooms, including Slytherin and Gryffindor, have been made available by Portkey Games.
Fans have also seen a tunnel connected to the lake, leading some to believe there would be a subterranean swimming mechanic. One watcher speculated that this “may perhaps be the tiny cove that the first years travel to in the boats before the sorting.”
Hogwarts Legacy Trailer
The event was kicked off by the original reveal trailer, which featured floating staircases, children dozing off in class, the Sorting Hat, and much more. Longer gameplay clips have now indicated that students will acquire new spells and techniques during lectures, but that they’ll need to swiftly grasp the basics because the game begins in the fifth year of school.
You can choose from a wide range of courses, including Defense Against the Dark Arts, Herbology, Potions, Charms, and can also participate in optional tasks, such as broomstick flying, to help you catch up to your fifth-year classmates; however, the game does not include the ability to play Quidditch.
In your free time, you are welcome to explore any part of Hogwarts, from the verdant courtyards to the enchanted stairways to the Hogwarts kitchen. You’ll need to use your wits to solve puzzles before you can access many of the rooms in this dungeon, such as using the Accio spell to open locked doors or raise hidden platforms.
Dangers lurk around every corner as you and one of the Hogwarts professors, Professor Fig, investigate reports of a Goblin uprising led by the powerful Ranrok and his Dark Wizard allies.
Talents are advancements that can be learned, and they include everything from spellcasting and farming to potion-making and stealth. As you progress through the game and complete tasks, you’ll earn experience and be able to put that experience toward one of six different talent trees.
The Room of Requirement is your base of operations, where you and your house-elf friend Deek can make adjustments to your gear and create a comfortable living place. Hogwarts Legacy also lets players take care of the many lovely flora and beasts who might aid them in the fight, as well as the opportunity to collect, build, and buy their magical equipment.
