Is Hogwarts Legacy multiplayer?
With just a month to go until the game's launch, it is officially confirmed that Hogwarts Legacy will not support multiplayer and co-op features. If you head to the official web page of Hogwarts Legacy, you will find out there is a Frequently Asked Questions section that goes over it. You need to scroll down a little, and you will see the answer that the multiplayer will not be a feature at launch.
Even though many Harry Potter players hoped to enjoy the new game with friends, the only option is to enjoy the exciting PvE content created by the developers.
Could multiplayer be added to Hogwarts Legacy?
However, considering Hogwarts Legacy is set to be one of the most popular games of 2023, there's always a small chance that multiplayer of some form is added in the future.
In August 2022, the developers released an Instagram post in which they promised to make exciting announcements on September 1. It led to fans speculating about multiplayer being added to the game in the form of co-op.
Of course, multiplayer would drastically alter the structure of Hogwarts Legacy and it wouldn't be a small undertaking for the developers. Therefore, we don't have high hopes for it becoming a reality, and especially not any time soon.
If you head to the Hogwarts Legacy subreddit, Twitter, and other forums, you will see that the multiplayer mod is still among the most frequently requested things for the game. If we hear anything on the possibility of it being added, we'll be sure to update you.
That’s it for what we know about Hogwarts Legacy multiplayer and whether co-op will be coming to the game. As we get closer to release, make sure to check our list of things fans want in Hogwarts Legacy.
