The reveal confirms long-running rumors, following a massive 2018 leak, of an open world game set in the Harry Potter universe. Warner Bros. has confirmed the game will release some time in 2021 for PC, PS5, PS4, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X / Series S. It’s being published and overseen by Warner Bros.’ Portkey Games, the game development team formed in 2017 to shepherd new game entries in the Harry Potter franchise.
In a blog post posted to Sony’s website, Avalanche revealed its involvement with Hogwarts Legacy. “The Portkey Games label gave us a unique opportunity to return to Hogwarts during a different era. We are always asking ourselves how we can draw from the rich library of characters, creatures, and themes – and imagine how those details would influence the school more than a century before Harry Potter’s arrival,” writes Avalanche’s story head Adrian Ropp. “Who was the headmaster? What challenges did students face? What influenced their society before Tom Riddle, before Newt Scamander? I like to say that what we are giving fans is something familiar in a way they have never seen.”
