Warner Bros. Interactive and Avalanche Software revealed today that their recently launched Harry Potter game Hogwarts Legacy sold more than 12 million copies within its first two weeks of launch. It also made $850 million in worldwide sales. The title also set records on Twitch, the largest single-player game launch on the streaming platform. It reached 1.28 million concurrent players at its peak.

According to Warner Bros. Hogwarts Legacy is now the most successful game in the Wizarding World/Harry Potter franchise. David Haddad, president of Warner Bros Games, said in a statement: “Our development team at Avalanche delivered an amazing, high-quality Wizarding World experience that truly fulfills the fan fantasy of life at Hogwarts and our publishing teams delivered a global impactful launch. campaign.”

The publisher also revealed that players have already put 280 million hours into Hogwarts Legacy. In addition to the game’s success, Warner Bros also reported an increase in engagement with the overall franchise, including a 300% increase in traffic on Wizarding World websites.

The game’s launch has been shrouded in controversy, with some gamers calling for a boycott over the allegedly transphobic views of Wizarding World creator JK Rowling. Although Rowling was not actively involved in the development of Hogwarts Legacy, she benefits financially from its success.
