An upcoming art book may indicate 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 written by Jody Revenson, who previously wrote “Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore Movie Magic” and “Harry Potter Paper Craft.”
September 1 is the date in the Harry Potter books when students return to Hogwarts, which makes the September release appropriate.
