There’s still a little less than a month to go before Hogwarts Legacy’s highly anticipated release, but it’s clear that Avalanche Software’s new open-world game will be a huge hit, already the best-selling game on both Steam and PlayStation. Also, Hogwarts Legacy is the second best-selling game on Xbox.
Hogwarts Legacy is scheduled for release on February 10, 2023 on Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 5, and PC; April 4 on Xbox One and PlayStation 4; and on July 25 in its version for Nintendo Switch. Although it will first reach the new generation, Hogwarts Legacy is already among the best-selling games.
There’s still just over three weeks to go before Hogwarts Legacy launches on PC and next-gen consoles, but since last week we’ve been reporting that Hogwarts Legacy is among the best sellers on Steam. Back then Elden Ring and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II had outsold it, but this week Hogwarts Legacy is the winner.
According to information provided directly by Steam, the “best selling” game of the week was Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, although this is a free-to-play experience. Hogwarts Legacy is in second place, becoming the best-selling paid game of the past week on Steam.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II continues to be the second best-selling paid game of the week on Steam, followed by Tom Clancy’s The Division 2, which came as a surprise to Steam at a super price, as you can buy it at 70% off .
If you are one of those who is looking forward to the launch of Hogwarts Legacy on February 10, all that remains is to be patient and wait a few more weeks, but if there is one thing that is clear, it is that the Harry Potter universe is about to expand with a very successful video game that it is registering very good sales since before its launch.
