Hogwarts Legacy Release Date Potentially Leaked

Hogwarts Legacy -- the new Harry Potter game from Avalanche Software and WB Games for Nintendo Switch, PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series S, and Xbox Series X -- is officially slated to release sometime this year. When this year is the million dollar question. Amidst rumors and speculation, the game could be delayed again, this time into 2023, a potential December release date has leaked. And if this leak is to be believed, the game is releasing on December 6, 2022, a Tuesday, the most common day for games to release other than Friday.

The leak comes the way of Amazon, which has listed The Art and Making of Hogwarts Legacy: Exploring the Unwritten Wizarding World for a December 6 release. This is particularly notable because previously the product had a December 31 placeholder. As you would expect, the Internet quickly noticed this, and the listing has since been changed back to December 31. 

Of course, this could be nothing more than an error, but if it is, it's an odd one as December 6 is not a placeholder date, ruling out this being an automated change. This appears to be a human error, if an error at all. 

Amazon UK has the Hogwarts Legacy art book slated for December 6, 2022👀 this doesn’t confirm anything but it’s possible the art book and the game itself release on the same day. Here’s hoping💙 from HarryPotterGame

At the moment of publishing, none of the implicated parties have commented on this potential leak and the speculation it has created. If this changes, we will be sure to update the story accordingly. 

Hogwarts Legacy is slated to release sometime this year -- possibly December 6 -- via Nintendo Switch, PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series S, and Xbox Series X.
