An upcoming art book could point to the release date of Hogwarts Legacy.
“The Art and Making of Hogwarts Legacy” is set to be published by Insight Editions on September 6, 2022.
As spotted by The Rowling Library, the book is authored by Jody Revenson, who has previously written “Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore Movie Magic” and “Harry Potter Paper Craft”.
September 1 is the date in the Harry Potter books that students return to Hogwarts, making a September release fitting.

Developed by Avalanche Software (Disney Infinity), Hogwarts Legacy is an open-world action RPG set in the world first introduced in the Harry Potter books.
Last year, Warner delayed the game’s release window to 2022.
The possibility of a further delay to 2023 was raised by journalist Colin Moriarty during a recent podcast, in which he claimed: “I’m hearing behind the scenes that game is not coming out this year, and that it’s in some sort of trouble.”
However, an official update on Wizarding World Digital stated that “the Hogwarts Legacy video game will be arriving this year”.
It reads: “2022 is also the year when the highly anticipated console game from Warner Bros. Games’ Portkey Games label, Hogwarts Legacy, is set to be released.
“Developed by Avalanche Software, this action RPG allows players to be at the centre of their own adventure set during the late 1800s wizarding world.
“From learning powerful spells and brewing potions to honing combat skills and taming magical beasts, this game will allow players to experience the magical world as a student at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry like never before as they determine the fate of the entire wizarding world.”
