Hogwarts Legacy PS4 and Xbox One versions delayed

As many gamers expected, the release is once again delayed.

After almost a month after the launch of Hogwarts Legacy, millions of players have already been able to play the title. In fact, sales topped 12 million units already. Beyond the congratulations to Warner Bros. Games for this great adaptation, one major criticism has coincided among gamers: the game’s performance on PS5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC.

In light of this, the team at Warner Bros. Games today announced the delay of Hogwarts Legacy for PS4 and Xbox One. This version will not be released on April 4th, as previously planned, but we will have to wait until May. But, maybe this delay will be positive for the version.

A delay for the best gaming experience

The PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions of Hogwarts Legacy have had a very rocky road. Warner Bros. Games has been cautious with these versions due to the difference in power compared to the new generation consoles. Something that is still being said about the Nintendo Switch version. But, after the launch on PC, PlayStation 5, and Xbox X Series X|S, the alert has been raised due to the poor performance and bugs that have been presented in the game.

Therefore, many PS4 and Xbox One players were already expecting two possible problems: a possible failed launch on these consoles as happened with Cyberpunk 2077, or another delay of the game to solve these problems. And, although everything seemed to be the possibility of a failed launch, Warner Bros has announced today through Twitter the delay of the version for consoles of the last generation of consoles to May 5.

As we can see in the text shared by Warner Bros. Games, the delay is to improve the gaming experience. Be it performance issues, graphical or technical bugs, loading times, and more. What is surprising is that there is no mention of the Nintendo Switch in any of these delays. When, clearly, the Nintendo Switch has worse performance and power than other consoles.

Still, we hope that Warner Bros. Games does not delay the game again. There are many players who have not yet been able to make the generational leap and who have been pre-ordering the game since last year. Hopefully, they can fix many of the problems we have seen in the current generation and deliver the best possible gameplay experience.
