New Harry Potter games announced after Hogwarts Legacy sells over 22 million copies

New Harry Potter games announced after Hogwarts Legacy sells over 22 million copies

Warner Bros. has announced new Harry Potter games are on the way after the success of Hogwarts Legacy.

Hogwarts Legacy surpassed 22 million copies sold by the end of 2023, so there is no surprise talk of a sequel has bubbled up.

Warner Bros. had hinted at more Harry Potter games, but had yet to officially commit to it.

However, we have now received the biggest indiction yet that a Hogwarts Legacy 2 will come at some point down the line.

The first game arrived last February to both anticipation and contention, with many gamers choosing to boycott the title due to its links with controversial Harry Potter author JK Rowling.

In spite of that, the game proved very popular with fans who have loved exploring the open world and seeing what it had to offer.

Set before the events of Harry Potter, Hogwarts Legacy allows users to attend Hogwarts for themselves as a student in the 1800s.

Players can customise their characters, choose a Hogwarts house and learn how to expand magical abilities by attending classes, as well as exploring beyond the castle to familiar locations from the Harry Potter world.

It's not all potions class and food in the Great Hall though, because the game also sees players 'embark on a dangerous journey to uncover a hidden truth of the wizarding world'.

The next Harry Potter game is set to be the smaller scale Quidditch Champions - a title that has been in beta but still has no official release date.

But in a new interview, Warner Bros. gaming boss David Haddad has said ‘a series of other things’ are also panned for the Harry Potter franchise that 'will let the fans be part of this world and stories and characters in deeper and deeper ways.'

"We don’t have any particular announcements on exactly how and when [the Quidditch game] is going to come to the market, but we are working to get it designed in a way just to delight fans,” Haddad told Variety.

He added: "A very consistent message coming from the executive layer of Warner Bros. Discovery is the importance of franchise.

"There’s a unique and important role games have in keeping our franchises relevant, resonant and exciting because there’s plenty of fans and plenty of people consuming content where games are their starting point, it’s their preferred form of content."

Hogwarts Legacy is currently available on PS5, PS4 Xbox Series X|S, Xbox, Nintendo Switch and PC.

While there is no indication on when the next Hogwarts Legacy game will release, fans will hope the wait won't be as long as it has been for GTA VI!
