Will Albus Dumbledore appear in Hogwarts Legacy?

We all have witnessed him being a crucial and essential aspect of Harry Potter movies in the past, let alone the books. But surprisingly, the developing team of Hogwarts Legacy has been silent on his involvement in the upcoming multi-platform game.

Does the lack of an official word on Dumbledore mean he will not appear in Hogwarts Legacy?

Here’s an interesting thing to note. All the Harry Potter lovers are well-versed with the book series and the timelines regarding the characters. It’s already known that Professor Dumbledore was born in 1881 while Hogwarts Legacy takes place in the 1800s, before the events of J.K. Rowling’s original stories.

Simply put, the game won’t involve Dumbledore in case its entire story takes place before J.K. Rowling’s series of characters. However, only if Hogwarts Legacy gets a sequel in the future, with a time leap, we may get surprised eventually.

For now, there is no mention of the Professor even on the official website. Because it won’t make any sense for him to be in the game. Since it takes place in the 1800s while Dumbledore was born later, in 1881, it will be highly improbable for the popular Harry Potter character to make an appearance at all.

Portkey Games, however, will try to bring him in future installments if the upcoming open world title is going to be the first in a possible franchise.
