Hogwarts Legacy has topped 15 million copies in sales

What's even more amazing is that Hogwarts Legacy's most recent figures are only from until March 31.

It's almost magical to see a temporarily current-gen exclusive game sell as much as Hogwarts Legacy have in such a short amount of time.

Most games take at least a year if not longer to sell 15 million units. Hogwarts Legacy, despite its controversies, took less than two months to achieve this feat.

As transcribed by VGC, David Zaslav took the lead in the latest Warner Bros. Discovery earnings call where he revealed that Hogwarts Legacy has now joined four other Warner Bros. Discovery video game franchises in the billion-dollar club.

According to Zaslav, Hogwarts Legacy is now in elite company alongside Mortal Kombat, Game of Thrones, LEGO, and DC games.

Hogwarts Legacy came out on the PS5, Xbox Series S/X, and the PC on February 7 and sold 12 million copies in two weeks of hitting the store shelves. This means that the game has moved more than three million units since then.

While few would nominate Hogwarts Legacy for this year's Game of the Year award, it's clear that it's become one lucrative investment for Warner Bros. Discovery. Perhaps due to its success, the company has become emboldened to work with the controversial Wizarding World franchise author, J.K. Rowling, on a live-action TV reboot of the Harry Potter books.

Hogwarts Legacy only recently hit the PS4 and Xbox One, so we're expecting its last-gen launch to move the sales needle by a few million.

It's unclear if the Nintendo Switch port will sell well, especially following the cancelation of Marvel's Midnight Suns on the popular Nintendo platform. We'll have to find out on July 25.

It's interesting that David Zaslav referred to Hogwarts Legacy as a franchise, implying that it's separate from Harry Potter or the Wizarding World.

Speaking of Warner Bros. Discovery, the publisher announced a new multiplayer Quidditch game but it currently doesn't have a release date. Finally, the first teaser of Mortal Kombat 12 was just released ahead of its rumored reveal later this month.
