Many users in the replies to the Tweet are also wondering why such a popular entry was not nominated for the Game of the Year awards held recently. Hogwarts legacy has basked in solid reviews but suffered its fair share of backlash over some controversial remarks made about the transgender community by the book author J.K. Rowling in the past. Fans argue that it is likely that the controversy has prevented the entry from taking the stage.

The RPG is set before the story of the Harry Potter films and focuses on the Hogwarts castle. The open world is laden with quests and lore to uncover.
