- Hogwarts Legacy has sold 22 million units.
- Despite competition, Hogwarts Legacy may be crowned the top-selling game of 2023.
- There are rumors of Hogwarts Legacy 2 being in development.
According to the latest sales numbers from WB, Hogwarts Legacy has sold 22 million units to date. Open world Harry Potter action-RPG Hogwarts Legacy released in February of last year to mostly positive reviews from critics. It was also an instant commercial success, breaking records for publisher WB Games and establishing itself as one of the top-selling video games of 2023, if not the top-selling game.
The jury is still out on whether Hogwarts Legacy will be crowned the best-selling new video game release of 2023 or not. There is a chance that Modern Warfare 3 will pull ahead once its final sales numbers for 2023 are tallied, but there’s also a chance Hogwarts Legacy will maintain its lead. 22 million units will be hard to beat, especially considering Hogwarts Legacy is also available on the Nintendo Switch, whereas Modern Warfare 3 is not.
What to Expect From Hogwarts Legacy in 2024
Hogwarts Legacy continues to captivate players with its original interpretation of the wizarding world, but not much might be in store for it in 2024.
Even if it loses its status as the best-selling game of 2023, Hogwarts Legacy selling 22 million units is still incredibly impressive. 2023 was a notably stacked year for the gaming industry, meaning Hogwarts Legacy had more competition than usual and still managed to come away as one of the year’s highest-selling games.
How Many Copies Did Hogwarts Legacy Sell in 2023?
- Hogwarts Legacy sold 22 million units in 2023, according to WB.
Hogwarts Legacy‘s impressive sales hopefully mean a sequel is on the way. While such a project has not been officially announced at the time of this writing, reputable leakers have suggested that Hogwarts Legacy 2 is in development. With the game smashing sales records, it would really be no surprise if Avalanche Software has already started development on the follow-up, and it will be interesting to see exactly what it brings to the table.
There are many different directions a Hogwarts Legacy 2 could go, but one feature that it’s safe to say many fans want to see added is multiplayer. Multiplayer was one of the most frequently-requested features for the first Hogwarts Legacy, and adding it to the sequel could potentially lead to even greater sales success. Then again, there are many fans who liked that Hogwarts Legacy focused on delivering a high-quality single-player adventure without getting bogged down by multiplayer modes or live service elements, so such a move could prove controversial if it came to pass.
Assuming the rumors are true about Hogwarts Legacy 2 starting development, fans shouldn’t hold their breath for any substantial DLC being released for the first game. The latest info suggests no Hogwarts Legacy DLC is in development, so Harry Potter fans will have to be satisfied with what the base game has to offer.
