Hogwarts Legacy has surpassed 15 million sales and grossed over $1 billion, according to Warner Bros. Discovery.
The game’s latest sales figures were announced on Friday in the company’s first quarter earnings results, which cover the three months ended on March 31.
The open-world action RPG sold over 12 million copies and raked in $850 million in sales in the first two weeks following its PS5, Xbox Series X/S and PC release on February 10, making it Warner’s biggest game launch ever.
“Hogwarts Legacy has amassed more than $1 billion in retail sales and over 15 million units sold worldwide to date, and today the team is launching the game on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One platforms,” Warner Bros. Discovery CEO David Zaslav said during the company’s earnings call (transcribed by VGC).
“This is our fifth $1 billion-plus gaming franchise alongside Mortal Kombat, Game of Thrones, our Lego games and DC, and there’s lots more games coming, including Hogwarts Legacy on Switch later this year.”
During today’s earnings call, JB Perrette, CEO of global streaming and games, called Hogwarts Legacy’s PS4 and Xbox One release “important”, but said the company has significantly higher hopes for the upcoming Switch version.
“We see that as probably a much bigger install base and a fan base that, as relates to the franchise of Harry Potter, which obviously appeals to a very big audience globally, and in markets like Japan where Nintendo has a big footprint and Harry Potter skews very strongly in terms of popularity, we see a much bigger upside probably from that release, certainly than the Gen 8 [release]”.
On Thursday, developer Avalanche Software released Hogwarts Legacy’s first major patch for almost two months, introducing an arachnophobia mode and over 500 fixes.
