HOGWARTS Legacy, the Harry Potter game where anyone can be enrolled in Hogwarts, has been delayed for a second time.
Leaked footage first emerged in 2018, showing the wizarding school.
Fans will have to wait until February to roam Hogwarts’ halls.
It was officially revealed in 2020, promising fans that they would receive their invitation to join Harry Potter’s school before the end of the next year.
However, as the end of 2021 approached, publisher WB Games announced that the game was far from done, but that Hogwarts Legacy would be around by the next holidays.
Things looked promising in March when PlayStation hosted a State of Play dedicated solely to the upcoming Harry Potter title, but it was not meant to be.
Hogwarts Legacy has been delayed yet again, with the new release date set for February 10, 2023.
Fans who have been waiting more than two years for this release were devastated by the news.
Taking to social media, many of them were not shy in hiding their feelings.
One Twitter user wrote: “Why cut Quidditch from Hogwarts Legacy and then delay it to 2023? For f**ks sake.The one thing I was looking forward to this year.
“Warner Bros. why make a Hogwarts game without Quidditch? You’ve seriously gone down hill.”
Another fan was suspicious this would be the end of it: “Quite naive of you to think this will be the last delay.”
Others think the delay is only to avoid competition from 2022’s highly anticipated God of War Ragnarök.
One user said “Hogwarts Legacy is delayed. Kinda shocked about this one actually.
“We have seen a lot of it. Think this is one of those ‘Let’s dodge God of War’ kind of delays.”
Some were understanding of the repeated delays and simply want to receive the best game possible.
Another user said: “Although I am disappointed by the delay for Hogwarts Legacy, the reason given is the right one: to help ensure quality on the biggest title they’ve made to date.
“I’m sure it was an incredibly difficult decision to make, but I applaud the team for having the courage to do so.”
