Hogwarts Legacy State Of Play Announced For This Week
Following the recent conclusion of an episode of the State
Play series focusing on Japanese developers, Sony has a new Livestream dedicated to Hogwarts Legacy scheduled for this week. Live stream developed by Avalanche Software and published by Warner Bros. Games, will be approximately 20 minutes long and will include over 14 minutes of Hogwarts Legacy gameplay filmed on PS5. According to the PS blog, you can see a gameplay preview at this time:
Operating conditions as well as
When to watch Hogwarts Legacy
- Date: March 17
- Time: 2:00 PM PT / 5:00 PM ET / 10:00 PM CET
After the gameplay is shown,
the stream will end with some comments from several members of the Avalanche Software team. The game takes place in the same school that was made famous by the Harry Potter books and films. The game is an open-world experience and you’ll see yourself taking control of your very own witch or wizard after they enroll in a wizarding academy in the 1800s. Just remember, Hufflepuff is the best house.
However, it has been a rocky road for the development of the game so far, as Harry Potter creator and author J.K. Rowling has been embroiled in controversy over comments deemed transphobic. After it was speculated that Hogwarts Legacy would be delayed until 2023, it was announced that the game was still in the pipeline for release in 2022 and Rowling had “nothing to do” with the project. Rowling will still receive a share of the profits from sales of Hogwarts Legacy, as she receives royalties “from the intellectual property of Wizarding World in full.”
Gotham Knights, another game published by Warner Bros. Games, is also set to release in 2022 and will emerge from the shadows on October 25th.
