The game allows players to attend an 1800s version of Hogwarts, the school made famous in the Harry Potter books and films.
The platform reported that Hogwarts Legacy-driven page views surpassed the Eddie Redmayne-starring Fantastic Beasts’ highest spike by 39% in just five days.
As of Tuesday (21 February), Warner Bros Games says Hogwarts Legacy has seen more than 267 million hours played, 393 million magical plants grown, 242 million potions brewed and 1.25 billion Dark Wizards defeated.
“The player engagement is spectacular,” David Haddad, Warner Bros Games president, told Variety.
“We are very pleased with the initial launch and see a bright future for our other platform launches.”
The game’s release was met by some unsuccessful calls for a boycott over Harry Potter creator JK Rowling’s views on transgender issues.
Rowling did not have any involvement in the concept or writing of the game, but she will receive royalties from its sales.
This week, the first two episodes of The Witch Trials of JK Rowling – a podcast series exploring the author’s views – were released.
Hogwarts Legacy is out now.
