"Live the unwritten"
— Tagline of the game[src]

Hogwarts Legacy is an open-world action role-playing game set in the late 19th century within the wizarding world. Developed by Avalanche Software and published by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment under the Portkey Games label, the game was released on 10 February 2023 on PC, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series X|S.[4] It was originally going to be released on 4 April 2023 on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, but the release date was changed to 5 May 2023.[2] It was released on the Nintendo Switch on 14 November 2023.[3]


"Experience Hogwarts in the 1800s. Your character is a student who holds the key to an ancient secret that threatens to tear the wizarding world apart. You have received a late acceptance to the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry and soon discover that you are no ordinary student: you possess an unusual ability to perceive and master Ancient Magic. Only you can decide if you will protect this secret for the good of all, or yield to the temptation of more sinister magic.
Discover the feeling of living at Hogwarts as you make allies, battle Dark wizards, and ultimately decide the fate of the wizarding world. Your legacy is what you make of it.
Hogwarts Legacy website

Players create a character capable of harnessing ancient magic who attends Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry beginning as a fifth-year student in the 1890s. During the gameplay reveal trailer in March 2022, a newspaper can be seen dated 1 September 1890. Players experience the life of the student as they "live the unwritten" and embark on a dangerous journey to uncover a hidden truth of the wizarding world.

Besides the protagonist, there are companion students such as Natsai Onai, a brave and justice-seeking Gryffindor, Poppy Sweeting, a kind and beast-loving Hufflepuff, and Sebastian Sallow, a charismatic Slytherin.

Villains include Ranrok (a goblin staging a rebellion against wizardkind) and Victor Rookwood (a Dark wizard operating in and around Hogsmeade).


The game was originally leaked on Reddit in October 2018 alongside an now-deleted unofficial trailer that showed extensive character creation, spell-casting, magical creatures, and exploration. No official comment was given by either Warner Bros. nor J. K. Rowling, although many reputable sources inside WB Avalanche, including high ranking employees, teased or claimed to know of the game.[5][6][7][8]

The game was announced via a video game showcase stream by Sony on 16 September 2020.[9] It was set to be available to players in 2021, but the date was later delayed twice, first to 2022, then to 10 February 2023 to continue developing the game for a better experience for players.[1]

On 17 March 2022, PlayStation revealed a State of Play presentation that featured 20 minutes of gameplay and behind the scenes content.[10][11] Community manager Chandler Wood revealed that the game will not have any microtransactions.[12]

On 18 May 2022, Avalanche released an ASMR video showing some additional footage of the Hogwarts grounds, Hogsmeade, and an unidentified area which included a store called the Magic Neep. While it did not include any additional story information, it did confirm several locations including Zonkos, Dervish and Banges, and Steeply and Sons tea shop.

On 24 May 2022, PlayStation revealed that PS5 will have exclusives relating to the Dual Sense controllers.[13]

The game had started development with actors portraying characters in the games. Actors were cast and were scheduled to start when the COVID-19 pandemic occurred. As a result, actors were forced to stay at home. The cast were forced to use the company Beyond Capture in Vancouver and employ Canadian actors. They used actors who were able to perform multiple actors; Direction and communication via Zoom.[14]

On 12 August 2022, the official release date was revealed to be 10 February 2023 for PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series S and Xbox Series X. The Switch version would be ported later on.[15]

A new exclusive trailer was unveiled at Gamescon on 23 August 2022, with a pre-order date on 25 August.[16] A Digital Deluxe version was revealed in the same trailer, with a collector's edition revealed on 24 August.[17]

On 13 December 2022, Avalanche delayed the game for Xbox One and PlayStation 4 until 4 April 2023.[18][19]

On 6 March, the game on Xbox One and Playstation 4 was delayed from 4 April to 5 May.[2]


Gameplay includes detailed character creation, spell casting, exploration, stealth, and elements of both the action and role-playing genres. As it is common for non-free console and PC games, no system of microtransactions is used, unlike the similar mobile game Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery.[12][20]

The player is able to develop their own duelling style by combining different spells. They are also able to make specific allies; it is possible to become a Dark wizard or witch instead of following a hero path, though the ending will still be the same as the protagonist is lauded as a hero for saving Hogwarts.[20]

The game is set in the Scottish Highlands, including Hogwarts and a vast territory around it. Broom flight can be used to reach farther locations, which includes wizard villages such as Hogsmeade. The developers have also confirmed a fast-travel system known as "Floo Flames". The scenery and other environments are highly detailed and intricate, weather events affect the environment, and the four climatic seasons are reflected in the landscape.[20]

A Wizard's Field Guide is provided to the player which keeps track of their level. It also includes their map, quests, owl post, settings, challenges, collections, talents (which unlocks through the main story), inventory and gear.

Behind the scenes[]

The Harry Potter Wiki has 1,457 images related to Hogwarts Legacy.
  • This is the first Wizarding World media set primarily in Hogwarts that does not bear the "Harry Potter" title.
  • On 16 September 2020, a trailer for Hogwarts Legacy was released.
  • On 17 September 2020, Warner Bros. announced that Hogwarts Legacy is not a new story from J. K. Rowling, and she is not directly involved in the creation of the game.[57]
  • Other wizards known to have lived at the time and place who are absent in the game include Armando Dippet, and Bathilda Bagshot.
  • Interestingly, and perhaps mistakenly, promotional images appear to show the Hogwarts Whomping Willow and the Forbidden Forest Acromantula colony. They would be anachronisms, since they were founded long after the 1800s. The colony was founded by Aragog and Mosag in Rubeus Hagrid's third year at Hogwarts in 1943, while the Whomping Willow was planted when Remus Lupin started at Hogwarts in 1971.
    • Another anachronism, shown in the trailer, was a Hogwarts student riding an enchanted carriage to the school. However, Hogwarts would already have the Hogwarts Express at this time, as it was first in operation no later than the 1850s. It may be that the carriage was just an alternate method of transportation at the time.
  • A companion book, The Art and Making of Hogwarts Legacy, was also published.
  • Extended footage of the game was released on 17 March 2022.[58]
    • This footage shows characters using the Summoning Charm (Accio) to pull enemies towards themselves and then attack with another spell. However, outside this game this spell is only known to summon objects, not people or creatures, with the exception of Newt who subjected a pet to it to recover the creature,[59] and Ted Tonks who summoned a fish to eat.[60]
      • This is actually addressed in a dialogue between Sebastian Sallow and Ominis Gaunt after the first Charms class. While Sebastian comments to the new student that they can use the charm on people, Ominis corrects him and states that the charm would actually have to be used on the clothes the targeted people are wearing.[61]
  • The students in this game wear different robes. They are coloured and gave the symbolic animals woven into the back.
  • On 12 August 2022, the release date was pushed back to 10 February 2023.[1]
  • At Gamescon on 23 August, a new trailer was revealed showing the dark side, winning Best Trailer.[62][63] At the same time, it was revealed that PlayStation owners will have an exclusive quest. Preorders were announced and made available on 25 August.
  • On 13 September 2022, the quest was revealed to be a time event for 1 year starting from the launch date. It featured the protagonist visiting Cassandra Mason at The Haunted Hogsmeade Shop.[64]
  • Over 22 million copies were sold, with implication of more games.[65]
  • A petition was started to ensure a hypothetical sequel to the game would not be live-service.[66]
  • On 6 June 2024, the Summer update was released on every platform, bringing in content that was previously exclusive to PlayStation consoles. Content released included the Azkaban outfit, Felix Felicis potion recipe, and the Haunted Hogsmeade quest. Additionally, photo mode was released to all platforms. [67]
