The game was originally scheduled to release on last-generation systems in April, but will now arrive in May, Warner Bros. said on Monday.
“We’re overwhelmed with gratitude for the response to Hogwarts Legacy from fans around the globe,” reads a Tweet from the Hogwarts Legacy account.
“The team is working hard to deliver the best possible experience on all platforms and we need more time to do this. Hogwarts Legacy will launch for PS4 and Xbox One May 5, 2023”.

The Nintendo Switch version of the game is currently scheduled to release on July 25, 2023.
Another Warner Bros title, Gotham Knights, had its last-generation console versions cancelled in the run-up to release, suggesting the publisher could be moving away from the last generation once Hogwarts Legacy is released.
Warner also claimed the game has broken company records for player engagement with 280 million hours played to date.
“We are so thrilled and proud to see the player response to Hogwarts Legacy from gamers, fans who are new to gaming and reviewers around the world,” said Warner Bros. Games president Haddad.
“Our development team at Avalanche delivered an amazing, high-quality Wizarding World experience that truly fulfills the fan fantasy of life at Hogwarts and our publishing teams have executed a globally impactful launch campaign.”
