When we talk about the games that were the most expected of this beginning of 2023, how not to evoke Hogwarts Legacy? Indeed, the game is clearly one of the contenders for the title of Game of the Year. The expectation was very high and it quickly showed with a record on Twitch that was completely blown up on the first night for him!
Hogwarts Legacy, a big expectation of the fans
As we just told you, Hogwarts Legacy is a game that was extremely anticipated by the fans. Indeed, since the movies of the Harry Potter license were released, we have been waiting with impatience for a game of this kind. A game that would allow us to slip into the skin of a wizard in the most famous school of witchcraft in the world.
Well, with the release of the game, this dream becomes a reality. That’s why fans have been flocking to the game. So, a while ago, we told you about Amazon that had received so many orders that the platform was temporarily out of stock. After many months of waiting, we are finally at the goal.
If the official release of Hogwarts Legacy will only take place in 2 days, some players can already test it. These are the players who have fallen for the Deluxe version which includes a 3-day early access. But if this is not your case, you just have to go on Twitch to discover the game at the same time as the streamers.
Cyberpunk 2077 record broken!
It seems that many people have said the same thing. Indeed, last night, Hogwarts Legacy simply broke the platform’s record for the number of viewers for a single-player game. Previously, the record was held by Cyberpunk 2077 which had gathered at best, 1.14 million viewers.
For Hogwarts Legacy, this counter continued to climb until it reached 1.3 million viewers. Some channels like XQC’s have even exceeded a hundred thousand viewers! So we can only hope that the game’s trajectory will be better than Cyberpunk 2077’s. However, such numbers in terms of viewers can be surprising. Indeed, one might have expected the boycott of the game to have a greater impact, even if one suspected that the game would remain a strong commercial success.
