“Harry Potter: Magic Awakened” Global Release Delayed to 2023

It looks like most fans will have to wait a bit longer to finally get their hands on the highly anticipated video game Harry Potter: Magic Awakened.

Though the game was originally set for a global release by the end of this year, it was announced on Thursday that the date has now been pushed back to 2023. The update, which was shared on the game’s social media pages, said that the delay of its global release was necessary because “the team needs a little more time to be able to deliver the best possible gaming experience.”

Magic Awakened is a multiplayer game featuring strategic wizard duels through an immersive role-playing experience.

In 2021, Magic Awakened was released in China, Hong Kong, Macau, and Taiwan, but fans in other countries are still eagerly awaiting their chance to play the magical game.
