Hogwarts Legacy has sold an unbelievable amount of copies across the different platforms it was released for. Most recently, Avalanche Software and WB Games announced that the game had made over $1 billion in sales since its initial release, making it one of the biggest-selling games of 2023. This came after Hogwarts Legacy had finally released for previous generation consoles, the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. But there’s one platform that the game was supposed to come out for but hasn’t just yet.
Unfortunately, Harry Potter fans looking to play Hogwarts Legacy on the Nintendo Switch will have to wait longer. Originally the game was planned to be released for the Nintendo Switch in July of 2023, but plans have now changed. The Switch version of Hogwarts Legacy has now been pushed back over four months and has a planned release of November 14th, 2023.

The official Hogwarts Legacy account on Twitter made the announcement, sharing a message with fans who were curious about the Switch version. “We know fans are looking forward to playing on Switch, therefore creating the best possible experience is our top priority. Thank you for your patience.” Most recently, the game received an update with various improvements and patches, addressing different bugs and other aspects of the game that needed to be tweaked.
The reception to the bad news has been mixed, with many feeling disappointed while others seem indifferent. Some voiced their dismay at how long it’s been taking for the Nintendo Switch version of Hogwarts Legacy to get released, while others did not seem to care too much after playing on one of the other consoles. Some people had already gotten to play the game recently on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One it came out on May 5th for those platforms. Some players that were interested in the game on its initial release had decided to wait for the game to come out on Switch, citing the portability of the experience with the Switch as an interesting way to play.
Hogwarts Legacy before and after its release received an immense amount of backlash and controversy but was able to achieve a high critical rating from multiple gaming outlets. We reviewed Hogwarts Legacy on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S, citing the wide-open world to explore and the combat as highlights of the experience. Despite attempts by various groups to boycott the game and voice displeasure about its release, Hogwarts Legacy was able to sell over 10 million copies within its first few weeks of release. That number eventually jumped high to pass 15 million copies sold once the game was available for previous-gen consoles.
