Why is Hogwarts legacy delayed?
There is no tentative date for the game’s release in 2022 as of now. We do not know whether it will come out during the early months. But, it is understandable. A dynamic & immersive gameplay does require a lot of groundwork and development.
Another reason for the delay could be the developers are learning from what happened with Cyberpunk 2077, and its accelerated release. Just to be on the safer side, Warner Bros is ensuring Hogwarts Legacy does not make the same mistakes. They are taking their time and doing it right.
However, every cloud has a silver lining. With some more time on their plate, the developers will surely make the game without bugs or glitches. When it does release, Hogwarts legacy will be available across a range of platforms, including PC, PS5, PS4, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X.
