Warner Bros. announced in a FAQ section that author J.K. Rowling was not involved in the development of Hogwarts Legacy. Even so, the world is of course based on the writer's invention. J.K. Rowling has made himself more than unpopular in the past with several transphobic statements on Twitter. Hogwarts Legacy will be available in stores in 2021.

This week, Warner Bros.'s long-awaited Harry Potter game, Hogwarts Legacy, was officially launched. The history of the action role-playing game is set 100 years before the events of the famous books at Hogwarts. Reactions to the game were a bit mixed at the beginning, because the new project inevitably also in connection with J.K. Rowling and her created world stands. In the past, the author has made herself unpopular not only with fans with many transphobic statements on Twitter. Warner Bros. would like to provide clarity in the FAQs.

"J.K. Rowling was not involved in creating the game – however, her exceptional writing skills are the cornerstone of any project in the Wizarding World. It is not a new story for J.K. Rowling."

A similar statement was made at the time by developer Portkey Games, who are currently responsible for a mobile game from the Harry Potter universe with Hogwarts Mystery. Many fans have now announced on Twitter that they will buy the new game despite all things, in order to ultimately support the developers in their work. Hogwarts Legacy is slated to hit stores in 2021 for PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, and Xbox One.
