Warner Brother Games President David Hadad also mentioned in an interview with Variety before the launch, “We are very pleased with the initial launch and see a bright future for our other platform launches. Our goal is to continue to utilize our amazing library of Warner Bros. Discovery franchises as we develop our future slate of games”.
This means that the company is likely to expand into the Harry Potter universe for its “future slate of games”.it is worth noting that the development of Hogwarts Legacy took over 5 years, it could be a while before its sequel is revealed.
Given the open-world RPG nature of the game, it could be at least three to four years before the release of Hogwarts Legacy 2. While the attachment of J.K Rowling’s name to the project has caused some controversies, it is unlikely to deter the publisher from working on a sequel.
