As you can imagine, the return of the Wizarding World of Harry Potter to video games has been a success. Not only for video game players but for all those people outside the industry who have bought the game to play video games for the first time in their lives. And Warner Bros. Games has expressed how happy they are with this situation!

“We are so thrilled and proud to see the player response to Hogwarts Legacy from gamers, fans who are new to gaming, and reviewers around the world,” said David Haddad, President, of Warner Bros. Games. “Our development team at Avalanche delivered an amazing, high-quality Wizarding World experience that truly fulfills the fan fantasy of life at Hogwarts and our publishing teams have executed a globally impactful launch campaign.”

As Haddad explained, the response from fans of the Harry Potter books and films has been very positive. More than 280 million hours of gameplay have been logged among all Hogwarts Legacy players. And, to top it off, there has been an increase in global franchise fan engagement overall with Wizarding World Digital garnering 300% higher traffic.

Aside from the problems the game has had with certain aspects of gameplay, or interaction with NPCs, everything has been going perfectly. It managed not only to satisfy the fantasy of many fans to live in this world but also to offer dozens of hours of gameplay to each and every one of the players. Congratulations to Warner Bros. Games and we look forward to the release of Quidditch in the game!
