Hogwarts Legacy is going to be released quite soon! We have been waiting for a while as the game has been delayed multiple times. But honestly, we'd rather wait a bit longer and have a well-made, polished game than a Pokémon Scarlet & Violet situation, right?

Hogwarts Legacy Release Date: PS4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch Versions To Start Later

While the game will first release on PC, PS5 and Xbox Series, the old-gen versions will take a bit longer to come out. There is another split here, as PS4 and Xbox One players will get the game on a different date from Switch owners.

Xbox One & PS4 Release Date

Hogwarts Legacy is going to be released on the Xbox One and PS4 on the same date. The game should be ready for April 4, 2023. That's about two months after the initial release for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X and S, as well as PC.

Nintendo Switch Release Date

Those of you who are looking to play the game on your Nintendo Switch will have to wait a tad longer than the rest. While the time between the PS5 and PS4 version is only around two months, Switch players will have to be patient until July 25, 2023.

Initially, Hogwarts Legacy was supposed to be released back in 2021, but it has been pushed back on multiple occasions. Now it seems that the dates are set into stone, so there isn't much standing in the way of players finally entering Hogwarts and getting up to some mischief in the grand halls of the world-famous school of witchcraft and wizardry.
