Not likely, more often it's the latch bolt is not dropping into the strike plate. A simple way to check what needs to be done is close the door just enough that the latch touches the strike plate and mark the top and bottom with a pencil, open the door and see if it misses the hole at the top or the bottom and get back to us. If it's a small amount try tightening the hinge screws. Sill missing then one of the hinges needs a screw removed and replaced with a 2-1/2 or 3 screw and tightened to pull the door up or down. Which one is done depends on if it to high or to low. Bottom one will lower it the top one will raise it. You did change the knob and strike plate and not try and use the old one, right?
