Hogwarts Legacy Sales

Magically-charged action RPG Hogwarts Legacy sold 22 million copies in 2023, Warner Bros. has revealed. Even for a game that's based on such a massive property, that's a staggering number — putting it right up there with the best selling titles of the last few years. Initially, the game launched for PS5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC in back February 2023. It was then ported to PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch in November, pushing holiday sales even higher than they would have been.

Indeed, Hogwarts Legacy managed to set records last year; it was the best selling boxed release of 2023 in the UK, beating out the likes of EA Sports FC 24 and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 — an almost unprecedented victory up against such annual juggernauts. For additional context, the title sold an additional 2 million units in December.

"[Hogwarts Legacy] 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," comments Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment president David Haddad in an interview with Variety.
