Harry Potter RPG Hogwarts Legacy finally announced for all formats

It might have been revealed during the PS5 showcase but the long-awaited new Harry Potter game is on all current and next gen consoles.

Having first leaked almost exactly two years ago, Warner Bros. has finally unveiled their new Harry Potter game, which is set in the late 1800s and is called Hogwarts Legacy.

It was announced as part of the latest PlayStation 5 showcase, and the footage was taken from Sony’s console, but it is not a PlayStation exclusive. Instead it’ll be released sometime in 2021 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 5, and PC.

Warner describes it as an ‘open-world, single-player, action role-playing video game’, where you’ll get to play a custom-created student at Hogwarts.


As with the Final Fantasy 16 reveal, Warner aren’t offering much more information than can be discerned from the trailer but apparently you’ll be able to grow your magical abilities, ‘by mastering spells, brewing potions, and taming fantastic beasts’.

You’ll also, ‘uncover an expansive world filled with perilous dangers tied to the wizarding world’s long forgotten past and an unusual ability that only they possess.’

Confirmed locations beyond Hogwarts include Forbidden Forest and Hogsmeade Village, as well as what looked to us like Diagon Alley.

The game’s being developed by Avalanche, who were bought by Warner in 2017 but were previous owned by Disney, for whom they made the surprisingly good Toy Story 3 and Disney Infinity.
