Understandably, the gaming community is buzzing with excitement, speculating about what the sequel will bring to the table.
What might the ‘Hogwarts Legacy’ sequel entail?
While there is no official information about Hogwarts Legacy 2’s release date and plot as yet, it’s safe to assume that, if players are to return for another round of schooling at Hogwarts, the game will need to introduce fresh activities and locales to maintain the immersion that defined the first instalment. Avalanche Software will likely need to conjure up something truly magical (pun not intended) to enthral returning players. Fortunately, given their track record, they seem up to the task.
Given the record-breaking success of the original game, a sequel always seemed like a logical next step. For the uninitiated, Hogwarts Legacy enchanted Potterheads worldwide, selling a staggering 15 million copies and generating an insane USD 1 billion in revenue. Remarkably, within the first two weeks of its February 2023 launch, the game had already sold 12 million copies.
