This came as a shock for Xbox users as the game is quite appealing to a considerable community section. It is not only going to have a tale of its own but also would answer several questions left behind by the books. 

While this intrigues players, it should be noted that a good knowledge about the wizarding world is necessary.

Players would be required to perform innovative feats of magic based entirely on their knowledge. This can only come true if they have a basic understanding of how magic works in the Harry Potter Universe.

Since it is a tale long before Lord Voldemort or Gellert Grindelwald, the story might revolve around an ancient magic source. 

Perhaps, the evil shown in the game would have a great significance over future developments, as seen in the movies and books. 

Fans all across the world are eagerly waiting for the release of Hogwarts Legacy.

WB has also officially announced that J.K. Rowling will not be associated with the franchise in any way. This is a rather controversial move, although numerous feel that it was necessary.

Especially after the recent fiasco. This also gives the game creative freedom to take a direction opposite to Rowling’s vision.
