Hogwarts Legacy DLC

Many games end up receiving DLC, but Hogwarts Legacy apparently won’t be one of them. At least for now, the game won’t be getting any extra content.

Hogwarts Legacy game director Alan Tew told IGN: “We’ve been really heads down bringing [Hogwarts Legacy] to life, so at the moment there are no current plans for DLC.” Plans could always change in the future, though at least for now, fans shouldn’t expect anything beyond what’s included in the game currently.
