For how popular the franchise is Harry Potterit had been a long time since we had received noteworthy video games from the saga created by JK Rowling… and none of the magnitude of Hogwarts Legacy, the gigantic title that will be released next Feb. 10.
The expectation that Hogwarts Legacy raises is evident in the sales and reservation data: although we still do not handle numbers, the game is being placed at the top of the list of most desired and most reserved games.
On Steam it has been a while the most desiredahead of games like Starfield, Hollow Knight Silksong or STALKER 2.
We also verified that it is, at the time of writing these lines, the third best-selling game… which is strange, since the rest of the games are titles like CS GO, PUBG or Lost ARK (free to play), NBA, FIFA , Forza, Call of Duty, Euro Truck Simulator… games that you can buy and have instantly, and not buy and wait a month to play it.

In Amazon, Hogwarts Legacy is also a best seller. In the entire video game section of Amazon Spain, Hogwarts Legacy Deluxe Edition para PS5 It is the best-selling product, ahead of credit cards for the PS Store or eShop, or accessories such as Switch microSD cards.
On Switch, it is the eleventh best-selling game on Amazon Spain, behind Pokémon, Zelda or (curiously) LEGO Harry Potter, but it is also worth noting… since we have not seen any images of the port for Switch (which surely don’t be too far in graphics).
On Amazon in the United States, it is also the current best-selling game for PS5 and the second best-selling game for Xbox, according to Forbes.
The editor of Forbes, Paul Tassi, even believes that Hogwarts Legacy could sell more than 20 million copies: the controversy surrounding JK Rowling will not matter much to stop Harry Potter fans.
Hogwarts Legacy will have a staggered release. On February 10 it comes out on PS5, Xbox Series X | S and PC / Steam Deck. It will be released on PS4 and Xbox One on April 4, and the Nintendo Switch version will be released on July 25.
