Hogwarts Legacy Patch for Xbox and PC Launches Today

PS5 patch will be delayed later.

Avalanche Studios has recently revealed that the Hogwarts Legacy patch for post-launch has now arrived on PC and Xbox platforms but the PS5 will be delayed a bit.

The new update will finally resolve a number of bugs and performance issues on the Xbox Series X/S and PC but the PS5 update will be released a few days later.

“PS5 players, due to some unforeseen issues, we’re targeting later this week to get your patch to you,” says the post on the Avalanche Studio’s Twitter account. Community Manager Chandler Wood revealed that the PS5 patch will be delayed for a few days and the target is within this week. This will fix a Collector’s Edition trophy bug.
