A whole month before its release and its already making waves in sales. For last week, Hogwarts Legacy was Steam’s eighth biggest revenue generator worldwide.
Originally scheduled to release back in 2021 it is now set to release on PS5, Xbox Series X/S and PC on February 10th 2023. Followed by PS4 and Xbox One platforms on April 4th, and the Nintendo Switch on July 25th.
Alongside this news it has also broken a Twitch record with the most live viewers for any single-player game ever on the platform, despite a streamer boycott. At the time of writing this it peaked at 1.27 million concurrent viewers.
UE4 does require some optimisation but I have been running it on the SteamDeck and with a few tweaks it runs pretty well. Hoping for another optimisation patch soon because the game is actually pretty good.
