With the game only available for those who pre-ordered the Deluxe Edition, interest in Hogwarts Legacy is at an all-time high. Hogwarts Legacy has officially broken an all-time Twitch record for being the most-watched single-player game with 1.3 million concurrent viewers.
As of publishing, it’s the only single-player game sitting within the top 50 in Twitch viewership.
The record blows past Cyberpunk 2077’s record of 1.14 million in 2020. As peak hours approach for the site, Hogwarts Legacy’s numbers are expected to increase further.
The amount of viewers is likely due to Twitch drops being abled for partnered streamers, with five individual in-game items up for grabs.
As far as Twitch viewership goes across the board, the game isn’t near the top of the all-time concurrent views record for games. That record belongs to League of Legends with a record of 3.11 million concurrent viewers. Fortnite is the closest at 2.28 million viewers.
Hogwarts Legacy officially releases on February 10 for PC, Xbox Series X|S, and PlayStation 5. The last-gen version of the game will be released in April while the Nintendo Switch version comes in July. Until then, it’s likely that the Hogwarts Legacy Twitch record will continue to grow. At that point, it’ll be time to wait and see what the official sales numbers are for the first weeks and months of the game. If the early interest is any indication, then those numbers should be near record-breaking as well.
