Portkey Games has shared the disappointing news that Avalanche Software’s open-world Harry Potter RPG, Hogwarts Legacy, has been delayed to 2022.

“We would like to thank fans from around the world on the tremendous reaction to the announcement of Hogwarts Legacy from our Portkey Games label,” the publisher tweeted. “Creating the best possible experience for all of the Wizarding World and gaming fans is paramount to us so we are giving the game the time it needs.”
