Hogwarts Legacy has made over $1 billion, get ready for many more sequels

Hogwarts Legacy recently launched on Xbox One and PS4, with a Nintendo Switch port on the way, pushing the game's sales past the $1 billion

Hogwarts Legacy recently launched on the Xbox One and PlayStation 4, with a Nintendo Switch port on the horizon, pushing the game's sales past $1 billion.

So far the game has sold a whopping 15 million copies across platforms, which is only expected to grow as more people buy the last-gen version of the game.

The Nintendo Switch version is speculated to contribute heavily to additional sales, as the Harry Potter franchise is incredibly popular in Japan, where the Switch remains one of its best-selling consoles alongside the PS5. Japan is the third best area in the world for its Harry Potter fandom, being beaten by the US and UK.

JB Perrette, CEO of global streaming and games at WB Discovery, recently discussed the upcoming release, stating: “We see that as probably a much bigger install base and a fan base.” The Nintendo Switch version of Hogwarts Legacy is set to launch on the 25th of July.

With all of this in mind, it’s almost a certainty that the game’s developer Avalanche Software will likely have additional projects in mind for the series.

What kind of projects these could be remains a mystery, as nothing has been officially announced or confirmed, but given how enormous the world of Harry Potter is, the possibilities are endless or sequels and spin-offs. Hogwarts in particular was opened in the 9th century, we’ve only really scratched the surface of its deep history.

The recent release of the Xbox One and PS4 versions of the game also came with an update across all platforms, aimed at fixing a variety of bugs and performance issues. The patch also introduced an “Arachnophobia Mode”, which changes the visual and sound design of the spider enemies found in the game.
