John Blackburn, Avalanche’s General Studio Manager chimed in as well, “It’s such an honor to work on such an amazing franchise, and the team is dedicated to delivering an authentic Wizarding World experience that both Harry Potter and RPG fans will enjoy.” He continued, “Hogwarts Legacy is so special because it allows players to immerse themselves in a new narrative that is filled with complex characters, and, of course, magic.”
Hogwarts Legacy will release sometime in 2021.
