  • A: Quidditch is not playable in Hogwarts Legacy. However, broom flight for traversal and broom race challenges is part of the game. Players can also fly brooms to explore new and familiar locations surrounding Hogwarts Castle.

For now at least, then, Quidditch will not be playable in Hogwarts Legacy. Why that is, though, the developers have not said.

Could Quidditch be added to Hogwarts Legacy?

If you head to the Hogwarts Legacy subreddit and other forums, you will find many Harry Potter fans hoping Quidditch would be a feature in Hogwarts Legacy.

Even though developers still have not commented on it, there is always a possibility they could add Quidditch to Hogwarts Legacy in future updates. It would be great as a separate multiplayer mode in a DLC add-on.

If it's something that fans keep asking for, maybe it's something that'll be added. After all, flying on broomsticks is already in the game, so we're part of the way there already.

That’s it for whether you can play Quidditch in Hogwarts Legacy. In short, it's not a feature at launch, but keep your fingers crossed it'll come at a later date. While you are still here, check out our guide on whether there are Hogwarts Legacy multiplayer options.
