It’s a sad world we live in, people. Like there’s not enough sorrow, we face fresh bad news every single day. Yes, I’m talking about the delay of Hogwarts Legacy; What did you think? Warner Bros.’ upcoming RPG game Hogwarts Legacy, which was expected to be released in 2021, has been delayed to 2022. It’s been announced through the game’s official Twitter account.
“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 company said in the statement. “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. Hogwarts Legacy will be released in 2022.”
Hogwarts Legacy was one of the games which we most highly anticipated in 2021, but we need to wait one more year to experience the feel of being a wizard. Revealed during the PlayStation 5 Showcase last year, the game drew huge attention thanks to being an open-world, action role playing game set in the Harry Potter universe in the early 1800s.
Hogwarts Legacy is being developed by Avalanche Studios and will be published by Warner Bros. The RPG game will be released for nearly every console: PC, PS5, PS4, Xbox One and Xbox Series X. Unfortunately, there isn’t any information about the Switch version of the game.
Now, here’s the deal. I prefer a game which is finished rather than a game full of bugs and needs a bunch of updates; we witnessed closely what happened in Cyberpunk 2077, so I understand the decision of the company. However, firms in the gaming world need to stop throwing out unplanned dates for their games. If you’re not going to release your game on the day you told, there’s no sense in giving a date in the first place. It’s a pity they use this way to create hype and increase their stocks. As the gaming community, we shouldn’t normalize these sloppy release dates. If the game requires more time, take it. We would be happy to wait to jump in a perfect game, but as Hawkeye said: “Don’t do that, don’t give me hope.”
