Publisher Warner Bros. Games and developer Avalanche Software announced Hogwarts Legacy has sold over 22 million copies.
The new milestone for the game was reached nearly a year after its February 2023 debut, while it previously sold 15 million copies by May 2023. This means over 7 million copies were sold through the holiday season.
“It’s not just the unit sold that I’m so proud of, it’s just that it delighted the fans so much,” said Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment president David Haddad to Variety. “It brought Harry Potter to life in a new way for gamers where they could be themselves in this world, in this story. And that’s what the team at Avalanche set out to do when they were developing the game and I think that’s really why it resonated so well and remains the best-selling game of the year in the entire industry worldwide. That’s a position that typically is held by one of these incumbent’s sequel games and we’re so proud that we’ve been able to break into the top ranks.”
