Less than two weeks into the new year, the first major game release of 2021 has already been delayed. Hogwarts Legacy, the open-world single-player RPG based off of the Harry Potter universe, was announced at the Playstation 5 event in September 2020 for a 2021 release. On the official Hogwarts Legacy Twitter page today, WB Games announced that it would be delayed until 2022 to "give the game the time it needs."

"A delayed game is eventually good blah blah blah" look I get it, delays are inevitable, and oftentimes necessary. But that doesn't stop me from being disappointed about it, especially when this was my second most anticipated game of the year.

On the plus side, at least now Rowling has time to reveal more fun lore facts that can be implemented, such as grown wizards canonically shitting themselves.

It's unfortunate, but it's much better that they do this very early than to try to rush a 2021 release and have to delay at the last second. It helps that they didn't even announce a release window aside from somewhere this year.

The animation and gameplay in the trailer looked terrible/wonky. I highly doubt this thing will come out as a solid title.

The biggest sin of this game is still the fact that you apparently start it as a transfer student in your fourth year.

Just let me go from year 1 to year 7, damn it!
I do feel the need at this point to plump for genuinely one of my favourite games

"life simulator" wherein you have the first year of magic school. More Earthsea than harry potter (though fan mods can do things).


Nobody should buy this, as J.K. is a transphobic piece of shit and will get royalties from it.
Care to expand on that one? She always seemed fairly all about everybody having a good time.
A casual search says most claims of that are debatable as well.

I was there on Twitter as it unfolded. She was dragged, and it was hilarious.

But yeah, she's a total TERF.
