Hogwarts Legacy Has Rolled Over 24 Million Copies Globally

A steady flow of sales has continued since last year.

Story Highlights

  • Hogwarts Legacy has sold over 24 million copies globally, as per a new report detailing the milestone.
  • The game became the top-selling physical title in the UK last year and clocked over 700 million hours.
  • It came out on February 10, 2023, for PlayStation 4 and 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series S|X, Switch, and PC.

Hogwarts Legacy was one of the most prominent releases that WB Games has churned out recently. However, the steady streams of sales have continued even after the advent of 2024. After selling over 22 million copies only a few weeks ago, it has now shifted over a remarkable 24 million copies globally. The tidbit was confirmed by Warner Bros. Discovery CEO David Zaslav to Variety in an interview.

Hogwarts Legacy is the Harry Potter game the fans have dreamt for decades.

On the other hand, Mortal Kombat 1 has rolled over 3 million copies. The CEO wants to take advantage of its billion-dollar franchises and focus on creating games while considering what the fans want. He wants to avoid investing in projects just for the sake of releasing them alongside movies.

It is unclear whether a Hogwarts Legacy sequel is in the brewer by Avalanche Studios or WB Games. However, the CEO has previously expressed interest in making “a series of other” projects in the Wizarding World IP that are currently unannounced. We may see a reveal of more Harry Potter titles in the near future. For now, the fans are awaiting the F2P multiplayer spin-off entry dubbed Harry Potter: Quidditch Champions.

For those out of the loop, the events portrayed in Hogwarts Legacy happen before the lore of Harry Potter begins in the Wizarding World IP. The RPG overall has proven to be a stupendous experience since the players have poured 707 million hours into it so far. It became the top-selling new release last year and also sold physical copies like hotcakes in the UK, topping the charts by hogging FIFA’s first spot after ten years.

The thrilling single-player RPG came out to critical acclaim on February 10, 2023, for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and PC, with a Switch port coming later in November. eXputer’s Asad Ahmed reviewed Hogwarts Legacy with a fantastic 4.5/5 score, calling it “a love letter to Harry Potter fans.”
