Hogwarts Legacy developer Avalanche Software says it currently has no plans for post-launch DLC. The game launched to critical and commercial success earlier this month, offering a ton of content in its expansive open-world RPG adventure set in the Wizarding World. However, the studio says that the focus was always on the initial release and DLC was not considered during that process.
Speaking at IGN Fan Fest, Hogwarts Legacy game director Alan Tew claimed that the team wanted to make sure the base game’s launch was good so it didn’t focus on DLC plans. “We’ve been really heads down bringing [Hogwarts Legacy] to life,” said Tew. “So at the moment, there are no current plans for DLC.”

However, this isn’t to say that Hogwarts Legacy will never receive DLC. It seems like Avalanche Software could begin working on post-launch content at any time and given the game’s enormous success commercially, it makes sense that future updates and expansions will be on the table.
Fans unanimously agree that Hogwarts Legacy could potentially get DLC or an update that adds Quidditch into the game, which is sadly missing from the experience. The gameplay already allows for players to fly on broomsticks, though the controls could be refined a bit more. The Quidditch pitch is also in the game, so it’s just a matter of putting the pieces together and creating content that will hopefully culminate in the fantastic sport mini-game.
Apart from that, little else is known about how Hogwarts Legacy could flesh out its story, but there are plenty of characters that could be introduced to add new quests and adventures into the massive open-world. We’ll just have to wait and see what Avalanche Software plans next, but we’re certain that DLC might happen at some point in the future.
Hogwarts Legacy is currently available for PS5, Xbox Series X/S and PC. PS4 and Xbox One versions are expected to launch on 4 April 2023, with a Nintendo Switch version arriving on 25 July 2023.
