WB Games president gives his opinion on JK Rowling’s comments
Although the creator of the Harry Potter saga was an icon to many years ago, his recent transphobic comments have caused rejection from many of his fans. This has led many to connect the creators of other works taking place in the magical world with the opinion of this writer and that many had to give explanations about it. With the new RPG Hogwarts Legacy
In a recent tweet, reporter Jason Schreier posted the response from Warner Bros. Games President David Haddad to JK Rowling’s comments. He replied that he had received many related questions on the subject and to which you would like to respond clearly.
According to David Haddad “Although JK Rowling is the creator of Harry Potter, and we achieve it with the power of Portkey, in many ways she is also a private citizen. And that means you have the right to express your personal opinions on social media. I may not agree with her, or your position on a variety of issues, but I agree that you are entitled to your own opinions. “
With this response, the president of WB Games makes it clear that he does not want to generate controversy on the subject and prefers to put aside the current situation of the original Harry Potter writer. It should be added that this company works hand in hand with organizations that fight for LGBTQ + rights, something David Haddad himself also mentioned.
JK Rowling will not be participating directly in the game
Despite the fact that JK Rowling is one of the most popular writers today, in recent years she has been involved in all kinds of problems due to some comments that she herself did via social networks. This caused her rejection by many followers of the Harry Potter saga and caused her not to be directly involved in the new license projects, as is the case with Hogwarts Legacy.
The Warner Bros. Games has confirmed that the writer JK Rowling will not participate in the creation of the game even if it supports this project. Hogwarts Legacy will focus on the world of magic created by her, but that’s not a new story from the writer.
Can you choose a home from the Hogwarts Legacy?
One of the most common questions after the release of the first Hogwarts Legacy trailer has to do with one of the biggest issues among Harry Potter fans. As we already know, Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry is made up of the houses Gryffindor, Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw and Slytherin, four very different houses, each of which has its own favorite.
While each person prefers one house over another, it has already been confirmed that in Hogwarts Legacy, players they can choose a house at the start of the game. Compared to that, we don’t know if we can change houses when we get further down the story, but the developer will provide information later.
Platforms confirmed for Hogwarts Legacy
With so many followers of JK Rowling’s work around the world, it is to be expected that the new RPG of Harry Potter and his Wizarding World It will be a hit with the players. That is why it is very important to know which platforms the game will reach as well as whether there will be compatibility between them, although the details are not yet known.
At the moment, we know that Hogwarts Legacy will be released in 2021 and will be available for PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S. This would leave out Nintendo Switch and Google Stadia players, although the reverse may be confirmed in the future.
How does the legacy of Hogwarts relate to the Harry Potter films?
Although Hogwarts Legacy is linked to the Harry Potter sagas, the game is only based on the universe it offers and not on its characters. This game this is not a work of the original writer of the Harry Potter saga so he does not follow the story.
On the other hand, the main plot of Hogwarts Legacy is set in the magical world of the 19th century, a period prior to that which JK Rowling shows in his books. This made that even though it was linked to the original story of the writing, the appearance of such characters as Harry Potter, Hermione Granger or Ron Weasley was impossible.
The game won’t be limited to Hogwarts school
While Hogwarts will be the primary location for the game to take place, the game developer has confirmed that it won’t be the only place players can investigate. It is not known what these new areas or maps will be displayed at Hogwarts but we already know that the forbidden forest and the village of Hogsmeade will be some of them.
While this wizarding world RPG has nothing to do with the story told in the Harry Potter saga, there are quite a few places that could eventually appear in the game. Places like Malfoy Mansion or Weasly House n ‘will certainly not appear, but others like Diagonal path or platform 9 ¾, among many others.
The main story of the Hogwarts legacy
Hogwarts Legacy is an open world game set in the magical universe created by writer JK Rowling in the Harry Potter book series. The players will put there in the shoes of a Hogwarts school student of Magic and Sorcery, where you have to explore different areas and discover all kinds of magical creatures.
As the journey into the wizarding world begins, the player must upgrade their character and all of their abilities to become the wizard or witch they truly want to be. It will have a secret linked to ancient magic which makes it different from the rest of the Hogwarts students, so the player must make the decision to protect it or experience the sinister magic it contains.
