Was starting to wonder if this game was real or not definitely getting a Playstation 5 sometime 2021 now.

I'll wait to see some actual gameplay before I get hyped, but it's cool it's finally official!

I'm all for this game myself.  I don't care about the whole stuff about J K and all that.  All I care for is the whole Harry Potter stuff and being able to run around Hogwarts, do wizard stuff there and explore the wizarding world.

 

But unlike others, I'll most likely be picking it up for the PS4, since the PS5 would still be a bit much for me at the moment, no rush for me to get one.

Hating Harry Potter or games related to it because of 1 interview of JK Rowling would be absolutely stupid. You don't have to like her personally, just appreciate the world she gave us.

 

It's not that simple.

 

She's using her money to fund anti-trans organizations. She gets royalties from sales of anything Harry Potter related, and some people don't want give money to someone that's going to use her money like that.

Im excited for this.

 

i can' t beleive we have gone the entire PS4 life with no Harry Potter game really. The lego games were fun, but i am looking forward to something a little more in depth like this.

Excited for this game. It looks like a lot of fun. Definitely going to be a day one buy. I was a bit sad when it said 2021. As that can be anytime up until the end of the year. Oh well, something to look forward to either way :)

I was going to get a PS5 anyway because I want to play Horizon Forbidden West, but THIS game is the cherry on top for me.

I personally don't care about the whole J K Rowling drama. The Harry Potter franchise was a massive part of my teenage years and beyond and I simply can't ignore that.

Yeah, she may have said some questionable things on Twitter, but I agree with this:

The only bummer about this situation is that we have to wait until 2021 to get our hands on Hogwarts Legacy. The excitement is real.

Not buying the game isn't going to hurt Rowling, assuming she's actually getting royalties from sales and didn't just sell the license for a fixed amount, the amount of money she'd receive from sales is so small in comparison to her wealth that she wouldn't even notice it. What not buying the game will do is hurt all the people who worked on the game and were doing so before the controversy started.

 

I'm excited for this, anything to remove the taste of that last Fantastic Beasts movie and hopefully bring something better to the table.

I fully support you not buying the game for these reasons or any other I might not know of.

 

I am curious why you wanted to be the one to post the game in this forum? Why not leave it for us who are excited and don't care about Rowling.

I'm not a fan of Harry Potter, so I wasn't ever going to get this game, but I've gotten into the habit of posting new game announcements, so when this game was revealed and no one else had made a topic for it, I went ahead and made one for it, along with some of the other games announced.

 

The controversy surrounding Rowling is notable enough that the people developing the game are bothered by it, so it's relevant enough to be mentioned.

 

I'm not going to pounce on someone every time they express excitement for this game, so you and everyone else can still use this topic however you want.

I'm glad I'm old. I tried reading the JK Rowling controversy and it sounded like gibberish.

 

This game looks promising, my daughter is particularly excited.

When the news of a Harry Potter RPG was posted on game sites I was really excited. After seeing this trailer I'm hyped. I really hope this delivers!

Enjoyed the movies (never read the books), so I would never call myself a Harry Potter super fan or anything...but this looks great. An RPG in this fashion is really intriguing so I'll likely grab the PS4 version in the future (unless I have a PS5 by then).

It is not because of ONE interview, it is because of her constantly and repeatedly hating on the trans community for month on twitter and on her blog. And now even her new book is full of this. So I understand everyone who doesn’t want to support her.

 

But I also understand everyone who just wants to enjoy this game, because people have waited years for something like this. I’ll probably buy the game myself at some point, because it’s everything I ever wanted from a Harry Potter game and I love this universe too much to let it be ruined from such an awful person as JK Rowling herself.

 

I just want people to be aware that she is spreading TERF bullshit and hate online, no matter if you buy the game or not.

Not hyped, but interested...

 

I kinda like the idea of making a Harry Potter game without Harry Potter. A bit like the Gotham TV series, that managed to create a Batman series without Batman.

 

Looking forward to knowing more about this 🙃
