Hogwarts Legacy: J.K. Rowling “Not Directly Involved” in the Title

The newly announced adventure Hogwarts Legacy is based on J.K. Rowling’s rich Wizarding World. However, the successful writer will not be directly involved in the development.

This week, Warner Bros. Games, Portkey Games, and Avalanche Software announced Hogwarts Legacy, a new adventure in the Wizarding World created by J.K. Rowling that brought Harry Potter stories to life.


However, the question arises whether the author is also involved in the story of Hogwarts Legacy. As Warner Bros. states in an official FAQ, J.K. Rowling is not directly involved in the development of the game.

However, the extraordinary work she has done with her literature is the foundation for all projects in the Wizarding World. Hogwarts Legacy is therefore not a new story for the writer.

With Hogwarts Legacy, players will travel to the 19th century and experience the school of wizardry in a time that takes place before the successful books and films. In the role of a young wizard, you will hold the key to an ancient secret that can turn the world of wizarding completely off its hinges.


Players have a choice of whether to commit themselves to the good or the bad as they lead a life at Hogwarts, find allies, battle powerful wizards, and determine the fate of the world.

Hogwarts Legacy is slated for release over the coming year for the PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, Xbox One, and PC.
