Warner Bros. Entertainment Inc. pushed back the release of Hogwarts Legacy, the hotly anticipated video game set in the Harry Potter universe, until 2022. The game had originally been planned to debut this fall.

Hogwarts Legacy, developed by Utah-based Avalanche Software, is a prequel to the iconic fantasy book series by J.K. Rowling. Set in the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry during the 1800s, the game will allow players to explore an open world and cast magical spells. Some of its creators said last year they were rattled by Rowling’s transphobic comments, Bloomberg reported.
