The boycott campaign against Hogwarts Legacy has turned against the game not only many people, but also from websites and even organizations. This is how the collateral rejection that has affected the title of Avalanche Studios and Warner Bros. Games, due to being set in the world of Harry Potter created by JK Rowling, who is classified as transphobic, now apparently comes from Games Done Quick (GDQ), considered the most important speedrunning charity event on the planet.
As its name says in English, the idea of the event is for participants to reach the end of different video games as quickly as possible, delivering a list of titles that can be used during the event. List that for the 2023 version of GDQ that lists a new section of “Games not allowed” that according to the site The Gamer (via PC Gamer), did not exist on the page until January 6.

Ban of this year’s event for which its reason is unknown, in a list that also includes, among others, prohibited games such as God of War from 2005, Ion Fury and Frog Fractions, as well as Five Nights at Freddy’s and all the games of Harry Potter including Hogwarts Legacy, the latter two “subject to review”.
Something that the PC Gamer site wanted to clarify by asking the organizers of Games Done Quick directly, since some games on the list have content for adults and must surely be prohibited for that reason, as the beginning of this list says when ruling out “Games with an ESRB rating of Adults Only.” Something that does not happen directly with Hogwarts Legacy and since the event they have not yet answered the reason for their addiction to illegal games, although it must be quite clear that it must be so as not to be classified as an organization that supports the transphobic writer, allowing games based on the world created by her.
