The Harry Potter role-playing game Hogwarts legacy was supposed to be out by the end of this year, but developer Avalanche Software and publisher Warner Bros. postponed the release date to February 10, 2023. As a result, the title misses out on this year’s holiday shopping season, giving fans more time to scrutinize all of the game’s footage and find any undiscovered details that might give away what’s in store for us in the finished product. A Reddit user recently discovered a detail in a trailer that points to a possible new weapon might indicate in the game.
