Hogwarts Legacy is a long-awaited game set in the universe of the successful Harry Potter franchise. It promises to offer an amazing open-world experience as a student on the Hogwarts castle premises.
The game will be available on consoles (Xbox and PlayStation from current and previous generation, also on Nintendo Switch) and PC. Currently, the Hogwarts Legacy is in the pre-order stage.
However, some Xbox players are receiving an email about their pre-orders being canceled. Here’s all you need to know about it.
Hogwarts Legacy pre-orders canceled for some Xbox players
Multiple Xbox players have been reporting that their Hogwarts Legacy Pre-orders were canceled unexpectedly. The situation is causing a lot of confusion among affected gamers.
I’ve received this weird email which isn’t from a spam account or anything. I haven’t brought anything and the links don’t show anything either. I did pre order Hogwarts Legacy but that still shows it’s installed on my Xbox?
Has anyone else had their Hogwarts Legacy pre order cancelled on them?
It happened to me about an hour and a half ago and I can’t figure out why. It says I still own it when I check the Microsoft store but I don’t understand what’s going on.
The cancelation message also reveals that the game’s release date will now be April 4. Initially, the game was expected to be available on February 10, 2023.
The situation is also causing concern among users of other platforms. Some also fear that the cancelation could affect the game’s availability.
@Xpecto_GO hey man so the ps5 Hogwarts Legacy is still on the 7th or 10 right? Apparently now all xbox dates were moved to April 4th?
@FinchStrife happy new year chandler!! Just for clarification…….Hogwarts legacy is still being released on February 7th or 10????, because now all xbox editions have moved to April 4th.
Here’s what is happening
Apparently, everything is due to a delay in Xbox One version. This not only affects those who bought the Xbox version, but also the Digital Deluxe Edition for Series X/S since it includes the ‘last-gen’ version.
