While VGC won’t share the spoilers directly, a summary can be found on Reddit by user Spheromancer.
Developed by Avalanche Software (Disney Infinity), Hogwarts Legacy is described as an open-world RPG that takes players beyond Hogwarts to new and familiar locations “as they live the unwritten and embark on a dangerous journey to uncover a hidden truth of the wizarding world”.
The game’s launch will likely be surrounded by controversy due to the ongoing situation with Harry Potter creator JK Rowling, whose publicly expressed opinions on transgender people have been considered transphobic by LGBTQ+ rights organisations and have caused many Harry Potter movie actors, including leads Emma Watson and Eddie Redmayne, to publicly voice their support for the transgender community.
According to a Bloomberg report citing anonymous sources at Warner Bros.’ Avalanche studio, some members of the game’s development team have since fought to make the game as inclusive as possible in response to the author’s comments.
