It was reported in January that Avalanche Software’s open-world Harry Potter RPG, Hogwarts Legacy, was being delayed to give it the time it needs to provide the best gaming experience. Now it seems there may be more happening behind the scenes, as game developer Troy Leavitt has left Avalanche Software. Kotaku reported that he posted tweets announcing his departure, with plans to publish more videos on his YouTube channel about this latest turn of events.

Leavitt drew criticism after making a series of controversial YouTube videos in February. His positive statements about his fellow team members at Avalanche Software and WB Games indicate that he still supports them. It remains to be seen what effect his departure will have on Hogwarts Legacy and its release.

As a child of the 70’s I was part of the many who became enthralled by the video arcade invasion of the 1980’s. Saving money from various odd jobs I purchased my first computer from a friend of my dad, a used Atari 400, around 1982. Eventually it would end up being a lifelong passion of upgrading and modifying equipment that, of course, led into a career in IT support.
