The main Warner Bros. Pictures saga adapts the seven original novels by JK Rowling, published between 1997 and 2007, although the latest installment in the saga, The Deathly Hallows, was divided into two parts when it hit theaters.

What year does the Hogwarts Legacy story take place?

Officially, what year does the Hogwarts Legacy story take place? From Avalanche Software and Warner Bros. Games date the development of this adventure in late nineteenth century. Through a number of The Prophet, we can specify the information a little more, as it is dated just for September 1, 1890departure day of the Hogwarts Express from platform 9 and ¾.

Hogwarts Legacy Date

Above you can see the date Hogwarts Legacy takes place: September 1, 1890.

This leads us to the next question, What do we know that happened at that time in the Wizarding World of Harry Potter? according to lore, around that decade the education at Hogwarts took place of no less than Albus Dumbledore. The one who became the most powerful wizard of his time put on the sorting hat to enter Gryffindor in 1892, so it is unlikely that we will see him in the video game beyond some mention that could set the character up for his appearance in a possible second installment of the RPG.

Thus Hogwarts Legacy is set in a period of relative calm in the Wizarding World, years before the Global Wizarding War between Albus Dumbledore and Gellert Grindelwald. in the first half of the 20th century, and of which we can see its beginning in the three Fantastic Beasts movies, so Avalanche Software’s RPG can serve to show the world in which the protagonists of this contest were educated.

We said relative calm, because we already know that Hogwarts Legacy will mention the Goblin Rebellion. This conflict experienced its most notorious events between the 17th and 18th centuries, but in the plot of the video game you will see with Ranrok, one of its key characters, a small revival of which, until we complete the Avalanche Software adventure, we have no more data.
