Even in a year that should produce more video game blockbusters than usual, it looks like Hogwarts Legacy could outperform all of its competitors. The freedom as a multi-platform release of his combined with the continued strength of the Harry Potter IP in the face of controversy means that Hogwarts Legacy will be a monster if it delivers. And early pre-sales already show that the initial sales are going to be huge, no matter what next week’s reviews say.
Hogwarts Legacy started topping the sales charts in a few places a month ago, but here’s where it stands now just a week before its release.

According to reports, the Hogwarts Legacy review is set to drop next Monday, February 6th. Reviews could be absolutely terrible (although no early previews were made), but there were so many pre-sales at this point that the game was fundamentally broken on many platforms. Despite this, it was a hit, selling over 13 million copies in its first three weeks. I don’t expect a similar meltdown to happen here, but the point is, the game is going to be huge.
As ever, it would be impossible to report on Hogwarts Legacy without mentioning the very public culture wars about the game, and buying the game is an anti-transgender view of Harry Potter author JK Rowling. while others claim that “despite buying” the game. To confuse that crowd. What is already clear, however, is that this argument will not have any meaningful impact on sales in any way, and many buyers are likely completely unaware of its existence. We’re seeing the best looking open world Harry Potter game for the first time in over 20 years since . That’s what drives it all, and it’s pretty simple.
Expect to hear about the legacy of Hogwarts all month long, whether you like it or not. stay tuned.
