Hogwarts Legacy multiplayer is a fun prospect, but it’s just not meant to be for some games. With that said, the school grounds and surrounding areas are huge, and while it’s fun to explore them on your own, there’s no denying how helpful it would be to have a friend along for the ride.

Is Hogwarts Legacy multiplayer?

Sorry to break it to you but Hogwarts Legacy doesn’t feature multiplayer of any kind, not PvE or PvP. Avalanche has no intention of adding such a feature. You need to wait for a new Harry Potter game if you want some multiplayer action, and considering the next one centers on Quidditch, we think it’s safe to say that it will feature multiplayer in some capacity. It’s a crying shame, as the world of Hogwarts Legacy would be fun to explore with friends.

Hogwarts Legacy has drawn considerable criticism during its development, largely due to the fact that the creator of the Harry Potter series, J.K. Rowling, has made a number of transphobic remarks on social media in recent years.

While Avalanche has confirmed that J.K. Rowling is not “directly involved” in the development of Hogwarts Legacy, it is working with “her team” and Portkey Games, a Warner Bros. label dedicated to launching new experiences inspired by J.K. Rowling’s original stories. It is currently unclear whether she will earn any royalties from the game’s sale, but it is likely given it is based on her original body of work.
