Hogwarts Legacy was one of the first big releases of 2023 and was slated to arrive on Switch several months after the original launch. Well, in the age of delays, it’s time for another delay. Here’s the full statement from the development team on Twitter, which did not give a direct reason for the delay:

Hogwarts Legacy launches on Nintendo Switch on 11/14/23. We know fans are looking forward to playing on Switch, therefore creating the best possible experience is our top priority. Thank you for your patience.”

It sounds like quality control to be sure, which makes sense given that Hogwarts Legacy had some bugs that needed to be ironed out at launch. It’ll be interesting to see how the Switch port pans out, and what concessions (if any) will need to be made to get this open world adventure on the last major platform.

The launch timeline of Hogwarts Legacy on all platforms

For reference, here’s how the launch of Hogwarts Legacy has gone so far:

  • On February 10, 2023, Hogwarts Legacy was released on PC, PS5, and Xbox Series X platforms
  • On May 5, 2023, Hogwarts Legacy arrived on the “previous gen” platforms of PS4 and Xbox One

The Switch port was originally going to be ready on July 25, 2023, but things have changed as of May 11.
