Hogwarts Legacy releases a week early for some lucky fans


SOME people have received their copies of Hogwarts Legacy a week early, and are already playing the game.

Images and videos of people playing Hogwarts Legacy have started appearing all over social media a week before the game’s release.

Hogwarts Legacy is out next week.

Fans were wondering how people were already playing the game which will receive its release on February 10, 2023.

However, those who pre-ordered the game will be able to access the game three days early on February 7.

Despite this, people are playing long before the Harry Potter game’s official release.

It seems that some retailers have accidentally been sending out physical copies early.

Retailers often send copies before the release date to ensure that customers receive them on the day the game is launched.

Sometimes this means that people receive their copy a day early, but this is not the standard.

Still, receiving a game a whole week before release is almost unheard of, and there was likely an error in shipping.

Images showing off character creation and gameplay are disappearing from social media, in particular Twitter.

It has been speculated that publisher WB Games has been issuing takedown notices to avoid spoilers for the unreleased game.

Some players were worried that the disappearing footage was an attempt to hide bugs or errors in the game.

However, this does not seem to be the case, as those who are playing early have reported smooth gameplay.

Early players have reportedly been enjoying the game, posting about how fun it is on various platforms.

For the majority of players this has been disappointing, as they contain their excitement for the upcoming release.
