In Hogwarts Legacy you can wield your own wand, brew potions, make friends and much more. However, one thing is not possible in the upcoming single-player action RPG. Unfortunately, you have to do without the popular sport of Quidditch.

Hogwarts Legacy: No Quidditch, but still plenty of broom action
When developing the game, the team behind the game asked themselves one question in particular: “How do you bring Hogwarts to life?”. Looking at the material that has been published so far, it is clear that they were able to answer the question, but on a not inconsiderable part of the wizarding school you have to do without in the game: Quidditch.
This was confirmed on the game’s official FAQ page. Why this is so is not revealed. The history of this sport dates back to 1107. Although Hogwarts Legacy takes you back to the 19th century, i.e. before the story of Harry Potter and his friends, the sport was celebrated even back then.
But you won’t have to do without the broom and competitions. “However, broom flights for locomotion and broom competitions are part of the game. Players can also fly broomsticks to explore new and familiar locations around Hogwarts Castle.”

When is Hogwarts Legacy coming out?
The game was originally supposed to be out by the end of this year. The date has since been pushed back twice. The reason was always the same. Developer Avalanche Studios need more time to develop the game. The fans reacted quite calmly. They prefer to receive a finished game.
The game is currently supposed to on February 10, 2023 for PC, PlayStation and Xbox appear. The release date for the Nintendo Switch will be announced later.
