Hogwarts Legacy Update Gives Harry Potter Fans Hope

A new Hogwarts Legacy update has given Harry Potter fans hope that some good news and a release date announcement are right around the corner. And this may seem obvious considering the game is still officially slated to release sometime this year, which means Avalanche Software is going to need to provide an update sooner rather than later, however, there's plenty of speculation that it's actually not coming out this year, but going to be delayed to 2023.

Last month, the game's Collector's Edition leaked online alongside word of some DLC, word of an early access period, and more. Fast-forward a bit, and now GameStop is sending out emails advertising a Collector's Edition. It doesn't preview the contents of this special edition of the game but clearly, it's expecting orders for it soon.

Now, this could be the product of an error. However, it seems unlikely. It could also be the product of GameStop trying to get ahead of other retailers after seeing the aforementioned leak. This is a little bit more likely. And of course, this could be a genuine instance of a false start, which seems like the most likely possibility.

So this is an email I just got from GameStop! Seems they know about the collectors edition. Unfortunately, Hogwarts Legacy doesn’t show up anywhere in the actual email itself so I’m not sure why it showed up in the email preview. from HarryPotterGame
