Hogwarts Legacy: the artbook has a release date, but the game doesn't!

Hogwarts Legacy

We know it well: announcing a release date of a video game too soon can cause some problems. Ask Bethesda or Xbox, for example, which with the postponements of Redfall and Starfield lost two big shots for the summer and winter of 2022 respectively. Naturally, then, that publishers and developers take it easy and only announce given that they are as accurate as possible. The case of Hogwarts Legacy, however, is particularly curious: in addition to a long radar silence about the game, the title has not yet received any release date, but its artbook does!

Hogwarts Legacy Let's go in order: announced in 2020 (but already in the works since at least 2018, as demonstrated by some footage leaked four years ago), Hogwarts Legacy only showed up in recently, after two years of radar silence. The launch window has been confirmed, that is winter 2022, but still no release date. There are only a few months left until the end of this year, yet Warner Bros. has not yet ruled on the matter. The artbook, however, got a sale date.| ); }
Clearly, at the moment there are still hypotheses to be taken with a grain of salt. The chance that this is an error on Amazon's part is very low, but we still have to take that into account. If the book really arrives on December 6, 2022, then there is another chance that Hogwarts Legacy will debut in November. We will update you as soon as there is more information on this, so keep following geekinco for all the news and announcements in the pipeline from the world of video games.

Hogwarts Legacy may release in early December

Hogwarts Legacy, the upcoming wizarding adventure, doesn’t have an official release date, but it could be out in early December.

There is an art book for the game: The Art and Making of Hogwarts Legacy: Exploring the Unwritten Wizarding World. Within its pages lies a clue to the game’s release date.

Customers who have pre-ordered this book have received e-mails from Amazon, informing them that its original release date, December 31st, is now December 6th. This has caught the attention of Potterites on Reddit (via VGC). They have inferred that this move forward could indicate the release of the game.

It is, I suppose, a logical leap—why not release your art book close to when your game comes out? Someone else on Reddit pointed out the art book for Gotham Knights, another Warner Bros. Interactive game, is due out on the same day as the game.

Who knows? We shall have to wait and find out. A magic-imbued early December seems plausible. In other recent Hogwarts Legacy news, we recently got a look at the game’s DualSense features. The game was rumoured to be delayed, back in January this year. But then it got its own State of Play, and the publisher indicated that it has a “Holiday 2022” release window. So there you go.
