There might not be any DLC planned for Hogwarts Legacy but Warner Bros. bosses see only a ‘bright future’ for the franchise…
When a game is a hit on the scale of Hogwarts Legacy it usually means two things: at least one major DLC expansion and a sequel. And yet surprisingly no DLC has not been confirmed yet, despite publisher Warner Bros. claiming the series is a ‘long-term’ concern.
It’s a similar situation with Elden Ring and is no doubt a mixture of not wanting to put people off from buying the current version and the length of time it would take to make new DLC, let alone a sequel.
Hogwarts Legacy had a troubled development and took over five years to finish, so a sequel is not going to arrive any time soon, but it’s already clear that publisher Warner Bros. is planning to make one.
Apart from anything, the last gen and Nintendo Switch versions of the game aren’t out until later in the year, so there’s probably not much opportunity to create anything new until that’s dealt with.
Nevertheless, Warner Bros. Games president David Haddad said: ‘We are very pleased with the initial launch and see a bright future for our other platform launches.’
According to Variety he then added that, ‘Warner Bros. sees Hogwarts Legacy as a long-term franchise.’
Especially if the claim of no DLC are true (which they probably aren’t), that can only mean sequels and spin-offs.
Fans have already pointed out that if there were a trilogy of games then they would naturally end with Albus Dumbledore joining in his first year, which does seem a natural thing to build up to.
In terms of DLC, the obvious thing to add is Quidditch, as it’s not part of the main game and yet developer Avalanche Software were planning to include it originally.
That’s just speculation but given how Avalanche has gone out of their way to give fans what they want so far, it won’t be a surprise if that’s the route they take.
