On-line shops have had the dangerous behavior of generally leaping the gun on launch dates. Within the case of Immortals Fenyx Rising, for instance, the Microsoft Retailer was a little hasty outing the sport’s launch of December 3 — three months earlier than schedule. There’s an opportunity it could have occurred once more. As spotted by VGC (via Reddit), an official artwork ebook for Hogwarts Legacy is hinting that the sport is heading out in December this yr.
Amazon UK has listed The Artwork and Making of Hogwarts Legacy: Exploring the Unrwitten Wizarding World for a December 6 date. Usually, merch like artwork books are likely to launch alongside video games to keep away from potential early spoilers. The December launch definitely suggests Hogwarts Legacy will arrive both on or earlier than the date. In keeping with VGC, the ebook had a placeholder date of December 31 earlier than the latest change. As of this writing, the date for the book hasn’t modified.
In fact, the change in date gives no assure the sport will arrive on that day. Hell, the discharge date for the ebook could change earlier than the tip of the week again to the extra obscure ‘December 31.’ Retailer leaks aren’t unusual, they usually’re not all the time correct. Of us as soon as believed GameStop leaked the April 26, 2016 launch date for Mafia III — the sport launched in October.
By no means a assure
Hogwarts Legacy itself was already delayed out of 2021. The sport was initially scheduled to reach final yr, however will now launch this winter. And once more, simply based mostly on how the previous couple of years have been, there’s no actual promise it’ll make a 2022 launch both. Certain, it might be good to see it arrive by or earlier than December, however we’ll have to attend and see.
Hogwarts Legacy is an open-world RPG set within the magical and kooky world of Harry Potter. It takes place round two centuries earlier than the books, inserting your custom-made character in one of many magical homes of the eponymous college of witchcraft and wizardry.
