Hogwarts Legacy set for record-breaking sales according to Steam
Hogwarts Legacy is set to be one of the best-selling games in 2023, as it enters Steam’s top five sellers weeks before launch.
It’s no secret that Hogwarts Legacy is one of 2023’s most anticipated games, as it seems fans of the Harry Potter franchise have been waiting for an open Wizarding World video game for many years.
Players can’t wait to explore Hogwarts and its grounds on a broomstick, as well as attend classes at the prestigious school of witchcraft and wizardry.
This is most evident when looking at Steam’s top-sellers for the new year, as we’re still a month away from release but the game has managed to break into the top five, even amongst controversy.

This is astounding considering the fact that the game doesn’t launch until February 10. In fact, these massive pre-order sales are leading renowned gaming journalist BenjiSales to predict a “gargantuan launch” for Hogwarts Legacy that will likely be one of 2023’s biggest releases.
Further, BenjiSales even states that Hogwarts Legacy is also the “#1 Most Wishlisted game on Steam,” and that they are hearing “VERY strong things about console pre-orders,” despite previous-gen versions of the game being delayed.
So, with all of that said, Hogwarts Legacy looks like it could be set for some record-breaking sales for Steam and potentially consoles if it continues at this rate.
