Hogwarts Legacy is one of the biggest game launches of 2023. If you are a fan of Harry Potter and have ever wanted to roleplay as a wizard, you would definitely know about this game. Warner Bros even stated that Hogwarts Legacy generated over $1 billion in global revenue, being a successful game that even outperformed their expectations. Now, from the looks of it, this success has resulted in something super exciting for gamers, i.e. another game set in the world of Hogwarts! Yeah, the rumors suggest that Hogwarts Legacy 2 is in development, so let’s learn all about it.
Hogwarts Legacy 2 ‘In The Works’; According To This Insider
A fresh leak has revealed that Hogwarts Legacy 2 is currently under development. Not many details have been revealed about the successor to Hogwarts Legacy, but this leak comes from a renowned movie insider who regularly posts updates related to upcoming films & TV shows.
As per the leak, X user MyTimeToShineHello’s sources have “confirmed that a Hogwarts Legacy sequel is in the works.” This is extremely positive news and means that we should see updates from the developers soon enough!
However, we likely won’t hear about it this year. But given the highly successful nature of the last game, we can surely expect Warner Bros to heavily consider making a sequel.
Hogwarts Legacy 2 Could Feature a Darker Storyline
Avalanche Software is the developer of Hogwarts Legacy, and Warner Bros owns it as the parent organization. The same studio should be developing the next Hogwarts game, but hopefully, it will have better optimization. Talking about the story that Hogwarts Legacy 2 might tell – we don’t have any confirmed details yet, but we can speculate.
In the Harry Potter movies, things slowly take a darker turn as the adventures of Hogwarts School of Wizardry advance. In Harry Potter 3: Prisoner’s of Azakaban, a noticeable shift to darker tones can be noticed. The directors heavily used elements of fear in the movie, and its use essentially intensified in future movies.
This is what the author, J.K. Rowling intended for the series – it gets darker with each new story. So, like in the movies, maybe we will see the upcoming Hogwarts Legacy 2 game with a darker storyline! Below is how the title screen for the Warner Bros logo changed in every Harry Potter film. As you can see, the title screen progressively got darker.
Along with this, we also expect better performance optimization than the current game. So, what are your thoughts on the upcoming sequel to Hogwarts Legacy? What are the things you would love to see in the new game? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
