Hogwarts has its hands full.

The recently released Hogwarts Legacy from Avalanche Studios has captured the gaming community’s attention this week, reaching a remarkable milestone by surpassing over 500,000 concurrent players on Steam. The crazy part is that it’s only available via the Deluxe version so far, meaning those numbers are bound to inflate tonight when the basic version comes out.

The tremendous success of Hogwarts Legacy is a testament to the widespread popularity of Harry Potter and the level of excitement the team behind the release, Warner Bros.
