Hogwarts Legacy has sold 12 million copies in just two weeks

Hogwarts Legacy has sold a whopping 12 million copies in just two weeks, Warner Bros. Games has confirmed.

Hogwarts Legacy is everywhere you look. Regardless of whether you’ve chosen to pick up the game or not, I’d imagine that you know at least five of Hogwarts’ hidden secrets thanks to the plethora of videos on social media.

Yesterday, it was unveiled that Hogwarts Legacy players had racked up over 250 million in-game hours plus it’s already been confirmed that Hogwarts Legacy is officially the most successful Harry Potter game of all time. One insider claims that a TV adaptation is already in the works at HBO Max and many have said that Hogwarts is their favourite video game location ever. Well now, we know exactly how commercially successful the title has been.

Yet to dive in? Enjoy a magical tour of Hogsmeade below.

As reported by GameSpot, it’s now been confirmed that Hogwarts Legacy sold over 12 million copies in its first two weeks of sale. Warner Bros. Games added that it had driven $850 million in revenue making it the company’s biggest launch ever. Let’s not forget that this is only the first stage of Hogwarts Legacy’s release rollout. PlayStation 4 and Xbox One copies of the game will land in April, with Nintendo Switch following in June.

Last year’s Modern Warfare II made $1 billion in its first 10 days of release. I should imagine that when WB Games can collect Hogwarts Legacy’s three release stats together, it’ll exceed that number. Fans are already hoping for a sequel, adding that it could be spectacular if it ironed out the first game’s creases.

Well, a sequel could indeed be on the way. Commercially, I can’t see WB Games passing up the opportunity but company president David Haddad also recently teased “a bright future” for the franchise. It was also added that generally, Wizarding World media had seen a 300% increase in traffic in the first 10 days of February. That’s quite the rise.
