Warner Bros. was originally set to releasing the third-person action RPG, Gotham Knights, and Hogwarts Legacy in 2021 before they were both delayed to 2022. 

Warner Media CEO via Twitter has reassured fans that both games will launch this year. He talked about the lineup for 2022 and said the company is "delivering of a full slate of highly anticipated games." In the same tweet there were images of Gotham Knights and Hogwarts Legacy.

There was a rumor that Hogwarts Legacy might get delayed to 2023, however, that was later debunked.

A 0.0% chance I'll buy any game connected to J.K. Rowling, sadly.

I personally find it ironic how JK Rowling was pretty left wing and was heralded for her pro LGBT views for many years, with the LGBT community celebrating her choosing to make Dumbledore gay, only for her fellow lefties to drop her like a bad habit as soon as she spoke out against the gradual erasure of biological women at the hands of trans women. I mean right now we have a trans member of the UPenn women's swim team who has been breaking all the female swim records, and one of her biological female teammates has spoken out to the media and says that the trans woman makes them all feel uncomfortable by flashing her male genitalia in the locker room. The father of another UPenn female swimmer said that his daughter and the other biological female teammates privately cry about how the trans teammate came in, broke all their records, and stole all of the media attention about their team; says morale on the team is at an all-time low, but that most of the team is too afraid to speak out for fear of being attacked for being anti-trans. JK is absolutely right about how trans women are erasing biological women, they're taking over their sports, taking over their safe spaces like restrooms and locker rooms, and when women speak out about it, they are attacked by a cancel culture mob of far leftists.

Anyway, the devs said that JK has zero involvement with this game, they only worked with Warner Bros to come up with the storyline and characters, JK didn't help design any of it. As far as we know she doesn't even get money from it's sales, last I heard she took a lump sum when she sold the Harry Potter video game rights many years ago, instead of asking for a royalty percentage.

I think I would find JK Rowling's views distracting when trying to play a Harry Potter/Howarts game, and it would take away from my enjoyment, whatever her royalty structure is. And even if it was a lump sum, I very much doubt it was a one-time thing, I imagine it would have to be renewed from time to time.

The gradual erasure of biological women at the hands of trans women? That seems like a straw man argument to me, the overwhelming number of women are CIS women, with trans women a tiny and frequently persecuted (even murdered) minority. Trans athletes is an interesting issue, and one with more nuance than most think (look at how few trans athletes have made an impact at the Olympics, for example).

I'm less concerned with sport, and more concerned with people's safety. JK Rowling is obsessed with a trans woman victimizing a CIS woman in a washroom, despite there not being a single instance in the world in criminal law that I'm aware of. And yet trans women regularly encounter incredible amounts of violence in their day to day lives. If she's worried about people's safety, she's doing the opposite of what she should be doing.
