Hogwarts Legacy refuses to recede in popularity despite how unpopular it has become with the LGBTQ+ community and LGBTQ+ supporters, who have launched a campaign against the game. This is because, as we have said previously, these movements call for not consuming products from the Harry Potter saga, on which the video game is based, in order not to support the author of the books who has been accused on several occasions of being a person transphobic
This is how we have seen from campaigns that call for not broadcasting the game or even closing the streams if Hogwarts Legacy advertising appears, to even quite unacceptable events, where many people attack streamers who are playing the title on their channels, reaching be so toxic that some have ended up on the verge of tears.

Campaign calling for a boycott that has had no effect on its sales since they have been quite high and also has not affected the game’s streamers on Twitch, where Hogwarts Legacy has displaced Cyberpunk 2077 as the most watched single-player game on the platform.
As they point out in the GAMINGbible medium, the CD Projekt Red game obtained the record of 1.14 million simultaneous viewers in 2020, but now Howarts Legacy’s magic wand has surpassed it with 1.3 million simultaneous viewers, remaining even ahead from quite popular categories like Just Chatting and highly viewed games like League of Legends and Escape from Tarkov.
Something that somehow shows that bad publicity does not exist and also shows incredible interest in a game that is currently in early access, since it is officially released to the public on February 10.
