New Hogwarts Legacy accidentally confirmed early, Batman: Arkham studio helping develop

New Hogwarts Legacy accidentally confirmed early, Batman: Arkham studio helping develop

A Hogwarts Legacy director's cut is reportedly on the way

If you’ve found yourself disappointed by Hogwarts Legacy’s summer update, worry not. It appears as if something far more exciting is right around the corner.

Hogwarts Legacy was 2023’s best-selling game and so many expected that a paid expansion may eventually land, taking us to an as-yet unexplored location - like Diagon Alley, for example.

Instead, players were treated to, if that’s the right word, the free summer update which added a photo mode and new cosmetics alongside unlocking the ‘Haunted Hogsmeade Shop’ quest on Xbox, Nintendo Switch, and PC.

The quest was a former PlayStation exclusive, meaning those on Sony’s consoles have even less new content to enjoy.

Even if Avalanche didn’t want to venture down the paid DLC route, it certainly would’ve been nice to see activities like Crossed Wands and Summoner’s Court expanded.

It appears though as if Avalanche may have been holding back because something much larger is on the horizon.

A new report claims that a Hogwarts Legacy: Director’s Cut is in the works.

ICYMI: Harry Potter: Quidditch Champions will launch this September.

This tidbit of news comes courtesy of Bloomberg’s Jason Schreier who announced that a director’s cut of the game was in the works in a new report on the troubled development of Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League.

If you’re thinking, ‘What’s the link between the two?’ I can answer that question.

Rocksteady, the developer of Suicide Squad, is reportedly supporting Avalanche on the director’s cut as both studios are under the Warner Bros Games banner.

Beyond this, there’s not much in the way of detail at this point in time.

If you think about other director’s cuts you’ve played, they usually feature two key things: restored content and new content.

The Last of Us Part II Remastered, a director’s cut in all but name, added No Return and the Lost Levels.

Ghost of Tsushima: Director’s Cut added the Iki Island DLC.

This could bring the expansion Hogwarts Legacy fans have been waiting for.

It was also heavily rumoured that a companion system was cut from the game during development, so it may be that we see something like this fully realised. Time will tell.
