According to the official website and retailer listings, Hogwarts Legacy is coming to Switch.
That information is relayed directly in an FAQ page. Regarding platforms, it states: “Hogwarts Legacy will be available for PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 4 Pro, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One consoles, Nintendo Switch and PC.” We’ll also mention that a Switch logo is included on the footer of the site across various pages. Amazon has also opened pre-orders for a physical version on Switch here.
Assuming this isn’t a mistake, the announcement comes as a bit of a surprise. There was no news regarding a Switch version when the project was first unveiled 2020. It would perhaps be even more of a surprise if we’re looking at a native port. Right now there’s no mention of the Switch version running via the cloud, though that could always change.
