Hogwarts Legacy: When is the game set?

When is Hogwarts Legacy set? The wizard Harry Potter seems to be distant in time, although Hogwarts is still the same… at least architecturally

After several postponements (the last of which concerned only the old-gen and Nintendo Switch versions of the game) and many controversies, Hogwarts Legacy is finally in the hands of all those who have pre-ordered the Deluxe version. All the others will have to wait a couple more days, to be precise on February 10, when the title of Avalanche Software and Warner Bros will be available to anyone on PC, PS5 and Xbox Series X | St. The game comes to life in the magical world of the Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts series and immediately received a warm welcome from fans who had long hoped to be able to get their hands on a title dedicated to the valid franchise.

When is Hogwarts Legacy set?

The question that arises spontaneously to those who approach the game without knowing anything is only one: but when is Hogwarts Legacy set? At what point in the Harry Potter narrative does it stand? The developers, when announcing the game, had already specified that the Hogwarts Legacy adventure would be set many years before the birth of the beloved chosen wizard, in an unspecified year of the 19th century. However, there are some elements that can help us give the game a more specific point in time. Which? Let’s see them together.

As already mentioned, Hogwarts Legacy is set during the 1800s, more precisely in the second half. Avalanche Software did not give a specific date for the start of the adventure during the marketing campaign, and there is no line of dialogue in the game that specifies it. This is where the most avid and detail-oriented fans of the game come into play, who have spotted something in the first trailers of the game that could give a hint to that effect.

In fact, in the gameplay reveal trailer, a newspaper narrates the Goblin rebellion that forms the backdrop to the narrative of Hogwarts Legacy. This newspaper has a date written at the top: September 1, 1890. And so here is the answer to the question that everyone was asking, the date that forms the backdrop to Hogwarts Legacy falls about one hundred years before the birth of Harry Potter and is currently one of the oldest settings related to the Wizarding World, even before the films of Fantastic Animals, set in the early 1900s.

Most likely, considering the time distance from the events narrated in the films and books of the franchise, there will be no major historical connections to Hogwarts Legacy. Even Albus Dumbledore, one of the characters dating back to the oldest epic mentioned in the Harry Potter films, didn’t enroll at Hogwarts until 1892. Obviously we expect some tricks to make fans happy, again in the name of fanservice, and who knows what The guys at Avalanche Software must have invented something else to make them happy.
