Hogwarts Legacy is currently available to those who purchased the Deluxe Edition of the game and it looks like there’s already a clear favourite house that most players choose. According to early statistics compiled, out of the four Hogwarts houses, Slytherin is the most popular so far according to current players.
A set of trophies in Hogwarts Legacy tracks players who managed to complete the Map Chamber quest, one of the early quests you encounter in the game. PSN Profiles compiled a list of the most chosen houses and their percentages, giving Slytherin a decent lead above Gryffindor in second place. Ravenclaw comes in at third place while Hufflepuff is the least favoured house for players in last place.

Here’s the full list and percentages compiled by PSN Profiles:
- Slytherin – 5.00% (The Toast of the Town trophy)
- Gryffindor – 3.92% (The Gryffindor in the Graveyard trophy)
- Ravenclaw – 3.11% (The Wise Owl trophy)
- Hufflepuff – 2.03% (The Auror’s Apprentice trophy)
It’s worth mentioning that this list doesn’t take other platforms like Xbox and PC into account, where it’s possible that a majority of players there might’ve favoured another house. It also only reflects the early adopters choices so the scales could be tipped by the time the game launches globally this Friday. When I personally ran my own poll on Twitter, Gryffindor was the most popular house with Slytherin coming in second.
On the other hand, Slytherin makes sense for Hogwarts Legacy. The game offers a pretty deep dive into the Dark Arts and Unforgivable Curses which have become synonymous with the Slytherin house and its history of Dark Wizards. Slytherin is also a house known for its ambition and resourcefulness, which would make it an ideal choice for players creating a particularly ambitious and driven character who might lean into the Dark Arts more naturally.
Hogwarts Legacy launches on 10 February 2023 for PS5, Xbox Series X/S and PC. PS4 and Xbox One versions will release on 4 April 2023, followed by a Nintendo Switch version on 25 July 2023.
