Hogwarts Legacy players have already racked up 250 million hours playtime

Hogwarts Legacy players have already spent over 250 million hours exploring Hogwarts and its surrounding areas.

It’s no secret that Hogwarts Legacy is a whopper of a game. Before you can even dive into the main story, you’ll need to attend a bajillion classes to learn all there is to know about spellcasting, potions, herbology, and transfiguration. Before you know it, you’ll be at the 10 hour mark and will have barely finished mastering the basics.

That’s not a bad thing though. Attending classes is part of Hogwarts Legacy’s charm but it does mean that you could be playing this game for a long, long time. Whether that is a daunting or exciting thought is up to you. Well, let me prepare you with this. One developer teased that it could take 120 hours to see all that the game has to offer. Already though, Hogwarts Legacy is the most successful Harry Potter game of all time so I should imagine fans are thrilled at the prospect of embarking on such a long adventure.

In fact, I can tell you with certainty that Hogwarts Legacy players are putting in the hours. So far, they’ve racked up a ridiculous collective playtime of 250 million hours. As reported by GameSpot, WB Games president David Haddad told Variety that player engagement had been “spectacular.” To be specific, 267 million in-game hours have been logged. During that time, players have grown 393 million plants, brewed 242 million potions, and defeated 1.25 billion dark wizards.

"We are very pleased with the initial launch and see a bright future for our other platform launches," Haddad said. Given the immense success of the title, it’s possible that we could see a Hogwarts Legacy 2 in the future. It’s certainly something that fans want.

If there is a sequel, there are plenty of new features fans would like to see added in. Many have pointed out that it would be fun to have a fully-fledged companion system so you could freely wander around the castle with Sebastian or Natty. It would also be fun to see a working house point system but considering all the terrible things we’re forced to do in the game, maybe that wouldn’t be so successful.
