Does Dumbledore appear in Hogwarts Legacy?

There is no official confirmation about Dumbledore appearing in Hogwarts Legacy. Unfortunately, any surprise character cameos have not been revealed, and Dumbledore is no exception. Therefore, there is no particular answer as to whether Dumbledore will be in Hogwarts Legacy.

Generally, the gaming community has two opinions about Dumbledore’s appearance. The first group thinks that Dumbledore will be one of the most important characters in Hogwarts Legacy, while the second considers Dumbledore will not appear in the game.


However, it's tough to say which side is correct. At the same time, Dumbledore first appeared at Hogwarts in 1892, while the game is set in the late 1800s. Therefore, one of the most potent headmasters could theoretically appear in Hogwarts Legacy, but only as a student.

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. Either way, the best option is to wait for the official game’s release and discuss Dumbledore’s role in the game after that.

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 Hogwarts student.
