Hogwarts Legacy is one of the most highly anticipated releases of 2023, especially after several delays. With it being the first time Harry Potter fans can experience the wizarding world of Hogwarts in such detail, one question is of top priority: is Hogwarts Legacy on Game Pass?

Given the game is now here, you are likely more than excited to get your hands on the game and see what is on offer. From Hogwarts Legacy spells to a wide selection of Hogwarts Legacy characters the length of Hogwarts Legacy will have you occupied for dozens of hours. But can you do that without paying full price?

Hogwarts Legacy is not on Game Pass. Therefore, if you’re looking to hop into the world of Harry Potter with Hogwarts Legacy then you will need to buy the game.

However, it’s not impossible for Hogwarts Legacy to come to the Game Pass service in the future since Hogwarts Legacy publisher Warner Bros. has a track record of adding their games to the service, with Mortal Kombat and Lego Star Wars The Skywalker Saga. Although, if this is the case with Hogwarts Legacy, you’ll likely be waiting a long time before it arrives on the service.

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.
