Is Hogwarts Legacy on Game Pass?

Hogwarts Legacy is not set to release 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 if you’re looking to play it on Xbox or PC when it releases.

However, it’s not impossible for Hogwarts Legacy to come to the Game Pass service in the future since Hogwarts Legacy publisher Warner Bros. have 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. The game is highly anticipated and we’d be surprised if it showed up on day one.

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.
