Yesterday’s PlayStation 5 Showcase event was a spectacular showing that included everything from launch titles Spider-Man Miles Morales and Demon’s Souls to Final Fantasy 16. There was also the much rumoured Harry Potter game, Hogwarts Legacy. Lots of people are asking is Hogwarts Legacy a PS5 exclusive, and here you’ll discover whether it will be on PS4, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X.
As already mentioned, yesterday’s PS5 showcase event confirmed the long rumoured Harry Potter game that was leaked years ago. And, to make matters better, it also confirmed that Hogwarts Legacy is an open-world game set in the 1800s where you get to create your own wizard. This means that you will be able to use your wizarding powers for good or for the dark side.
But, before the game is set to come out, below you’ll discover whether it is a PS5 exclusive, and if it is coming to PS4, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X.
Is Hogwarts Legacy a PS5 exclusive?
No, Hogwarts Legacy is not a PS5 exclusive.
Hogwarts Legacy is not a PS5 exclusive, meaning it’ll be available on other systems such as PC.
Developed by Avalanche, the Harry Potter game is an open-world action RPG set in the 1800s. This means there will be no Harry Plopper, slug vomiting Ron Weasley, or everyone’s childhood crush, Hermione Granger.
You will be able to create your own character by modelling their face, and you’ll also be able to explore familiar locations while discovering unfamiliar fantastical beasts.
Oh, and it wouldn’t be an action RPG without upgrades and the Mass Effect-like ability to choose between Paragon and Renegade.
Will Hogwarts Legacy be on PS4, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X?
Yes, Hogwarts Legacy will be on PS4, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X.
The Hogwarts Legacy website says the game will be on PS4, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X, and its targeted release date is 2021.
This is fantastic news for those who are planning to buy Microsoft’s next-gen system, as well as for those who don’t want to or can’t make the upgrade to next-gen yet.
And that’s probably a lot of people judging by the calamitous state of PS5 pre-orders.
