The controversy surrounding the game continues.
From the moment of its announcement we have been able to see how Hogwarts Legacy has been embroiled in controversysince, despite the fact that the development has been carried out in the best possible way, the fact that this title is based on the Harry Potter universe and, therefore, on the work of JK Rowling, has not sat well with a part of the community, since it is well known that the author of these books has been characterized more in recent years by her hateful comments towards the trans community than by her work.
All this has led to the fact that although the title is being a resounding sales success, there is part of the community that I don’t want to know anything about himleading to even some streamers having to give statements confirming that they will not broadcast the game on their channels, especially since we have been able to see reactions to this as an application that indicated who was broadcasting it in order to harass them in the chat.
Hogwarts Legacy ban also extends to all Harry Potter games
Given this premise, it must be said that the last to speak out have been those responsible for a charity event known as Games Done Quick in which they perform speedrunning of various games to raise funds. And it is that they themselves have indicated that have banned Hogwarts Legacy from appearing during any future events that they carry out, placing it within the category of games not allowed.
In fact, if we access the Games Done Quick website, we see that the justification that has been given for this title, as well as for all the others that make up the list, is that its content, views or origin are inappropriate for their transmission at the event. And the funny thing about this is that even the rest of the Harry Potter games have been bannedalthough the latter is subject to revision in the future.
It should be noted that this list is not limited solely to games like Hogwarts Legacy, since in it we can see that the Games Donde Quick team has vetoed titles with an ESRB rating of Adults Onlyfinding here names as well known as Five Nights at Freddy’s Series and the God of War launched in 2005. For all this, it is to be expected that in the next Games Don Quick event, which will be the Frost Fatales and will be held from the 26th of February to March 4 of this year, let’s not see anything from Hogwarts Legacy.
A game involved in a controversy by the author of the original work
It should be noted that the Games Done Quick case with Hogwarts Legacy It is not an isolated casesince we have been able to see that even Resetera has prohibited any type of discussion that involves Hogwarts Legacy, which adds to a large number of measures seen in other media that are directed either not to support JK Rowling under any circumstances or well to avoid any type of controversy around those who have promoted the boycott of the game and all those who are involved with it.
For the rest, and knowing that the title continues to grow after its recent update, it must be said that it will not be the last time we see something from Hogwarts Legacy, since after a launch on PS5, Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S and PC , we will soon see how the Warner Bros and Avalanche title based on the Harry Potter universe will reach PS4 and Xbox One on April 4 while it will be available on Nintendo Switch from July 25 of this year.
