The wizarding world of Hogwarts Legacy has been a massive hit with fans since its release in February, breaking sales and streaming records, but a surprising statistic has left fans spellbound. According to completion statistics, most players are dropping the game before reaching the end, causing a major debate among fans about the game's popularity.

While some fans argue that this is to be expected since Hogwarts Legacy is a single-player game that most people will only play once, others have pointed out that the game's completion rate on Steam is a mere 25%. This number has shocked fans and raised questions about the game's overall success.
Some fans are comparing the completion rate of Hogwarts Legacy to other open-world RPGs, such as Skyrim, The Witcher 3, and Elden Ring, which have completion rates in the 20-35% range. However, others argue that Hogwarts Legacy is easier and meant for more casual players, and therefore, it can't be compared to notoriously difficult games like those mentioned above.
Despite the controversy surrounding the Harry Potter series and Hogwarts Legacy, including claims of transphobia, antisemitism, and racial stereotyping, the game still managed to break sales records. However, fans are now questioning whether the game's popularity is decreasing, and whether it's too little too late, as the game has already made hundreds of millions.
As the debate over the game's popularity and social impact continues, fans will have to decide for themselves whether or not the game is worth playing. Hogwarts Legacy is available now for PC, PS5, and Xbox Series X/S, with versions for PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch to be released later this year.
