Does Dumbledore appear in Hogwarts Legacy?

Sadly, Dumbledore doesn't appear in Hogwarts Legacy. There's no official meeting with him, no cameo: nothing. The simple reason is that he isn't at the school at the time of the game's story, and no flash-forwards reveal him as a pupil, either.

According to Harry Potter lore, Dumbledore first appeared at Hogwarts in 1892, but only as a student. With Hogwarts Legacy set in 1890-91, it's a year or two out from having Albus join the school.

Also, you should consider that Dumbledore joined Hogwarts with a dark legacy. His father was imprisoned, which might significantly affect Dumbledore’s role in the upcoming release. He'll likely feature in whatever game comes after Hogwarts Legacy, but whether that's as a story character or the main protagonist is up for debate.

Will other Harry Potter characters appear in Hogwarts Legacy?

Since the game is set in the late 1800s, only a small number of Harry Potter characters can appear in Hogwarts Legacy. Dumbledore is certainly one, as well as other characters who have appeared in the Fantastic Beasts franchise, like Grindelwald and Newt Scamander.

That’s it for our look at Dumbledore in Hogwarts Legacy. Even though adding the future headmaster is not confirmed by any officials from Avalanche Software, Dumbledore could well appear in the game as a secret or easter egg.
