The next Wizarding World game is published by Warner Bros. Games under the Portkey Games label. The game was positioned as “rooted in the magical universe of the wizarding world” while not being “direct adaptations of JK Rowling’s Harry Potter series”. The publisher also confirmed that the controversial transphobic author is not part of the development process for the upcoming game.
Hogwarts Legacy will give players a playful experience of life as a student at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry in the 1800s. It tasks players with creating their own personalized witch or wizard and embarking on a journey through the iconic castle loaded with magic and the dense locations of the Forbidden Forest. Game activity includes learning new spells, building their home, brewing potions, forming alliances, and battling enigmatic dark wizards.
Players will have access to a full set of upgrades, talents, and skills to aid in their progression as a witch or wizard. Like any other RPG, completing challenges earns you XP, which can be used to upgrade abilities and magical gear.
But in September, Avalanche Software disappointed many when it confirmed that the upcoming Harry Potter open-world RPG won’t include Quidditch matches in its gameplay. However, broom crossing has been confirmed to be included in the game.
Hogwarts Legacy will be released on February 10 on PC, PS5 and Series S/X, April 4 on PS4 and Xbox One and July 25 on Nintendo Switch.
