We knew it would do well in sales, but Hogwarts Legacy’s success has been incredible. The game based on the Harry Potter universe is dominating the sales charts and is still attracting tens of thousands of users every day. All this translates into more than 12 million copies sold, a figure within the reach of very few games.
With these results, there is no doubt that Warner Bros. intends to continue exploiting the brand in the world of video games, no matter how much controversy follows. In fact, it is comical to a certain extent, since it seems that Warner Bros. has realized that video games make money, and they should probably pay more attention to them, as well as let Rocksteady work.
At the recent investor talk, Warner Bros. CFO Gunnar Wiedenfels was clear and blunt: “To be able to be enjoying incredible success with the release of Hogwarts Legacy 12 years after the release of the last movie released makes it clear to us that there is a lot of opportunity with our franchises. We have only just begun.
In this regard, the CFO comments that the idea is not only to continue releasing video games of the Harry Potter brand, but also of The Lord of the Rings, to which they own the rights. It would therefore be a matter of exploring passages of the characters created by Tolkien, as is being done with Gollum (a game that smells bad, it must be said).
At the moment, we must not forget that Hogwarts Legacy plans to receive downloadable content to expand the game experience. There is a lot of room for improvement.
