Hogwarts Legacy has been delayed on PS4 and Xbox One for a couple of months, but the good news is that it hasn’t been canceled. PS5 players can still look forward to the February release date when the game will arrive as scheduled alongside the Xbox Series X|S and PC versions.
When will Hogwarts Legacy be released on PS4?
The new Hogwarts Legacy release date on PS4 and Xbox One is April 4, 2023. This is two months later than the PS5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC versions that will still launch on February 10, 2023.
Both the Hogwarts Legacy standard and Deluxe Editions will launch on the same day on PS4 because they’ve been delayed. This means the PS4 Deluxe Edition will no longer include 72 hours of early access to the game. Those who have pre-ordered the Deluxe Edition on PS5 will still get 72 hours of early access, meaning they will be able to play the game starting on February 7.
The only reason given for the delay is that the team needs “a bit more time” to work on the PS4 and Xbox One versions. However, the PS5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC versions have now gone gold two whole months ahead of the release date, giving the team plenty of time to concentrate on getting the game right for the other consoles.
