Hogwarts Legacy for the Nintendo Switch has been delayed

But does it really matter at this point?

The Nintendo Switch is a six-year-old console and it is starting to truly show its age. More and more third-party AAA (and even AA) games for this handheld console are either getting delayed, cancelled or just flat-out not being made for the Switch at all. The latest game to be delayed is Avalanche Software’s Hogwarts Legacy, which has been pushed all the way to November 14.

This announcement was made via the game’s official Twitter with the tweet stating:

Hogwarts Legacy launches on Nintendo Switch on 11/14/23. 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.

So once again, looking on the bright side, at least it is not cancelled unlike Marvel’s Midnight Suns, which Firaxis only offered a very brief explanation as part of their email to announce the game being available for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One:

The Nintendo Switch version is no longer being offered as part of updated plans.

However, we also have to question if this really matters because most Nintendo Switch owners will probably be busy with the critically acclaimed Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom (TotK). Also, with TotK being a sequel to Breath of the Wild, I am quite sure players will be spending a lot of time in Hyrule trying to figure out all the easter eggs and secrets strewn across the map.
