There are no romance options in Hogwarts Legacy as confirmed by Avalance Software, the developers of the game. Fellow students and teachers can accompany you on missions, but these relationships can’t go further.

In an interview with GamePro, Narrative Lead Moira Squier and Game Designer Kelly Murphy explained that the feature would be “difficult to manage,” considering that the main character is 15 years old when the game begins.

Our wizard or witch joins the school in their fifth year, but students ranging from 11 up to 18 attend Hogwarts and can be seen roaming the campus. With this in mind, the devs understandably decided not to include romance options altogether.

However, this doesn’t mean that romance options won’t come later down the line. There has been no word yet on DLC for Hogwarts Legacy, but the game is expected to receive post-launch support.
