Are there Hogwarts Legacy DLC plans? Latest expansion rumours
We share all we know (at the moment).
Warner Bros and Avalanche Games only launched Hogwarts Legacy into the world very recently, but already fans are starting to wonder about potential DLC plans.
The base game offers plenty to do — from taming beasts to learning spells, collecting Demiguise statues and brewing potions, as well as working through the main chapters, of course — but players always have a tendency to look toward the future.
So, will there be Hogwarts Legacy DLC at some point in the future? Read on and we'll tell you everything we know about the game's expansion potential.
Are there Hogwarts Legacy DLC plans?
At the time of writing, Warner Bros has not announced any major Hogwarts Legacy DLC plans. But with the base game still being very new (it hasn't even come out on PS4, Xbox One and Switch yet), that isn't exactly surprising.
In fact, Hogwarts Legacy director Alan Tew told IGN recently, "We’ve been really heads down bringing [Hogwarts Legacy] to life, so at the moment there are no current plans for DLC.”
That being said, the words "current" and "at the moment" do leave some wiggle room in that statement! Tew has downplayed our hopes for now, but we still wouldn't be surprised if DLC was announced at some point way down the line.
If we're talking purely about cosmetics, there already are additional DLC packs out there (like the Dark Arts DLC pack). However, as far as the type we're talking about here - more quests, new areas - nothing has been officially announced.
However, there are rumours afoot, and there might even be a few hints in the game...
What are the Hogwarts Legacy DLC rumours?
To start, let's talk about that Quidditch pitch. The in-game lore is that the sport has been banned due to an injury, but the fact that the pitch is on the map gives us hope. Will Quidditch in Hogwarts Legacy become available in a DLC? We hope so.
Another possible DLC is a continuation of the story. With this, we could find out what happens after the game's "true" ending, and carry on with our character's progress beyond the fifth year.
There are lots of potential new places in the Wizarding World for a map extension, too. Although players do visit Azkaban in a certain quest, we'd love to explore the wizard prison in a fleshed out new map... perhaps tying into the evil version of the game's ending.
Rumours on Twitter have already suggested that Quidditch was explored at one stage during development, as well as claiming that the game's map was scaled back during the process of making the game. With that in mind, it doesn't seem out of the question for these elements to be woven back in later as DLC. We can hope, at least!
Of course, if and when Warner Bros announces plans to follow on from Hogwarts Legacy's launch day experience, we'll be sure to update this page.
