‘Hogwarts Legacy’ Pushed Back Until 2022

The highly anticipated Harry Potter video game, ‘Hogwarts Legacy’ was supposed to be released this year but now it’s been pushed back to 2022.  The game is a open world action game set in the 1800s. Way before anything exciting happened at Hogwarts. It’s a weird time period to set the game, but it could be cool depending on what they do with it.

According to a tweet from the developer, the game needs more time to be great. Maybe now they can make it so it’s more current and exciting than the Wizarding world in the 1800s. It was first announced last year during an event for the latest PlayStation model, PlayStation 5. The same team that created Disney Infinity, Avalanche Software is developing the game.  The whole project is being overseen by Portkey Games, which is a new division that was created for Harry Potter experiences. Portkey also oversees the Hogwarts Mystery game app for Apple and Android. That game takes place about ten years before Harry Potter goes to Hogwarts, and some familiar faces are in the game, including the Weasley siblings, Percy, Charlie, Bill, Fred and George. Even Tonks is a character in the game. It’s not clear if anyone else we know from the books will be in this game, since it takes place in the past. Since the game is being pushed back another year that gives fans who don’t own a gaming system time to get one. The game will be released on Playstations 4 and 5, Xbox One and XBox Series X, and PC in 2022.

It is a dream come true for fans of Game of Thrones and video games! George R.R. Martin and FromSoftware, an acclaimed video game developer who has created games such as Dark SoulsBloodborneand Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice are teaming up to create an original video game title! The game, according to Forbesdebuted on June 9th at Microsoft’s press conference, debuting in a frankly epic looking teaser trailer. It’s pretty vague, with little to none of the story actually revealed but the imagery is nonetheless extremely striking. The trailer showcases a man hammering on a magic ring, shattering it into pieces, as beautifully designed fantasy characters populate a blasted and ruined landscape. The sky is burning. A man is wrapped in dozens of disembodied arms. It looks surreal, weird, and utterly striking at the same time.

According to ComicBook Hidetaka Miyazaki, the direct of Elden Ring, spoke to Xbox Wire about the project. He revealed he and his studio were a huge fan of George R.R. Martin’s work. They expected to be shot down when he reached out to Martin to collaborate but Martin accommodated his request to speak and signed onto Elden Ring. The two of them hashed out the game’s world, with Martin himself having been revealed to work on the ‘overarching mythos’ and lore of the game’s complicated history. Knowing his skill for world building and narrative development, this is a very cool reveal. Miyazaki himself described Martin’s world as thus:

“…Full of interesting characters and drama. It’s also packed with mystical and mysterious elements. Elden Ring’s world was constructed using this mythos and stimulus as a base. Even I myself find it hard to contain my excitement from time to time. We hope that everyone else is looking forward to the world we have created.”

The game doesn’t have a release date yet but it is scheduled to be released on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC. We can’t wait to see the new world George R.R. Martin has helped create! Are you excited?
