Does Hogwarts Legacy Run on Unreal Engine 5?

Even though the game is graphically stunning, Hogwarts Legacy actually runs on Unreal Engine 4 instead of Unreal Engine 5. This is because the game has been in development for way longer than Unreal Engine 5 has been announced for.

Avalanche Software must be pushing Unreal Engine 4 to the absolute limit with Hogwarts Legacy, since the engine was originally released in 2014!

Achieving such a solid mix of graphics and performance on a legacy engine (pun intended) is quite the feat to be proud of. Although it had tons of doubters, Hogwarts Legacy is shaping up to be game of the year potential.

Hogwarts Legacy being ran on Unreal Engine 4 should make Harry Potter fans excited for the future of the series. Imagine a sequel that is ran on Unreal Engine 5!

Nevertheless, players can expect all kinds of third-party graphical mods in the near future, so there’s that to look forward to as well.

Now that you know what engine Hogwarts Legacy runs on, it’s time to get out there and enjoy the game!
