Hogwarts Legacy is a newly released action role-playing video game that takes place in the Wizarding World of the Harry Potter series. The game was developed by Avalanche Software and published by Warner Bros. Games under its Portkey Games label. The game allows players to attend Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, where they can explore famous locations such as Hogsmeade and Diagon Alley, as well as previously unseen places like the Hufflepuff and Ravenclaw common rooms. In the game, players can create their character, choosing their appearance, house, and gender, and they will have the opportunity to upgrade their character’s spells, talents, and abilities as they progress. The player character will also have the opportunity to interact with various magical creatures and make friends with non-player characters.

The development of Hogwarts Legacy began in 2018, after Avalanche’s acquisition by Warner Bros. The game was announced in 2020, but was subject to delays, leading to its final release in 2023. It is currently available for PC, PS5, and Xbox Series S/X. It will also launch for PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch.
