Publisher Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and developers Avalanche Software and Portkey Games have announced Hogwarts Legacy for the Xbox Series X and S, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. It will launch in 2021.

View the announcement trailer below:

Here is an overview of the game:

Hogwarts Legacy is an immersive, open-world action RPG set in the world first introduced in the Harry Potter books. Now you can take control of the action and be at the center of your own adventure in the wizarding world. Embark on a journey through familiar and new locations as you explore and discover fantastic beasts, customize your character and craft potions, master spell casting, upgrade talents, and become the wizard you want to be.

Experience Hogwarts in the 1800s. Your character is a student who holds the key to an ancient secret that threatens to tear the wizarding world apart. You have received a late acceptance to the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry and soon discover that you are no ordinary student: you possess an unusual ability to perceive and master Ancient Magic. Only you can decide if you will protect this secret for the good of all, or yield to the temptation of more sinister magic.

Discover the feeling of living at Hogwarts as you make allies, battle Dark wizards, and ultimately decide the fate of the wizarding world. Your legacy is what you make of it.

Looks pretty good from what i saw. Wish there was actual gameplay and not a cinematic trailer though.

I feel this is going to get caught up in the whole RIP JKRowling thing

No because the vast majority of people don't give a damn what a bunch of whining twitter babies think.

I'm not concerned about it. RIP JK Rowling screams of loud minority, silent majority to me. I agree with what Hagrid's actor, Robbie Coltrane, said about RIP JK Rowling, "there's this whole twitter generation waiting around to be offended, they wouldn't have won the war (WW2)".
