While this doesn’t officially confirm that Hogwarts Legacy 2 is in development, it does seem to reassure players that Warner Bros. is keen to return to the Harry Potter universe after the first game became an instant hit.
In the same interview, Haddad shed some light on just how popular Hogwarts Legacy has been since it arrived, claiming there have been “over 152 million hours played, 173 million magical plants grown, 115 million potions brewed and 556 million Dark Wizards defeated.”
He also revealed that the publisher wants to bring more Warner Bros. properties to life in video game form: “Our goal is to continue to utilize our amazing library of Warner Bros. Discovery franchises as we develop our future slate of games.”
