'Hogwarts Legacy' Fans Worried PS4, Xbox One Versions Will Be Cancelled

'Hogwarts Legacy' Fans Worried PS4, Xbox One Versions Will Be Cancelled

Will Hogwarts Legacy be cancelled on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One?

Hogwarts Legacy fans are expressing their concern that the upcoming Harry Potter RPG will be cancelled on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One ahead of its release later this year.

In case you missed it, Warner Bros. announced yesterday that WB. Montreal's impending Batman game Gotham Knights would no longer be launching on last-gen consoles. Instead, the multiplayer DC action game will focus on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, and PC. This, Warner Bros. confirmed, is to give players the "best possible experience".

Predictably, this has caused some concern that Warner Bros. will announce a similar fate for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions of Hogwarts Legacy.

Over on the game's subreddit, fans are discussing the likelihood of the Harry Potter RPG being scrapped for last-gen consoles. At this stage, it's important to note that Warner Bros. has given absolutely no indication that Hogwarts Legacy will be exclusive to new-gen hardware. And as others have pointed out, Hogwarts Legacy has one thing that Gotham Knights never had: a Nintendo Switch version.

Hogwarts Legacy was confirmed to launch on Nintendo Switch alongside previously confirmed platforms in March this year. While I have no idea what black magic is being used to get the game onto Nintendo's hardware, I can't imagine for a second that Warner Bros. would have announced a Switch version so long after the game's original announcement unless it was absolutely confident it could manage it.

And if Hogwarts Legacy can run on a Switch? It can definitely run on a PlayStation 4 or Xbox One. The bottom line here, my friends, is that we have absolutely no reason to worry right now.

Hogwarts Legacy is currently aiming for a holiday 2022 release window, which means it's likely to arrive any time between October and December.
