Hogwarts Legacy looks like a dream game for fans of “Harry Potter”, but there has been one disturbing detail: the developers avoid mentioning Quidditch, as if in “Hogwarts Legacy” there is no way to play it.

After the presentation at the State of Play, the authors Hogwarts Legacy Updated the FAQ on the official website. There is the following question:

– Is there in Hogwarts Legacy broom flying?
— Flying on broomsticks is one of the ways to travel in Hogwarts Legacy. There’s also broom racing, and players can take flying classes to improve their broom skills.

Here, the developers come as close as possible to the topic of Quidditch, but for some reason do not even leave a hint of its existence in Hogwarts Legacy and they only talk about broom racing. Of course, it is possible that some separate trailer will be dedicated to Quidditch – at least in the last video, the Hogwarts sports stadium flashed in the background.

The last time that Quidditch was seriously transferred to a game format happened in 2003 – then SHE released Harry Potter: Quidditch World Cup. Quidditch appeared in other Harry Potter games, but only as side entertainment, often greatly truncated – for example, the user could only be a catcher and chase the Snitch, and the extras in the background did everything else.

Quidditch rules are not very conducive to a full-fledged adaptation in the format of a video game: either a strong rethinking is needed (say, in Quidditch World Cup chasing the snitch is enabled only in the final stage of the match, and does not take place throughout it), or multiplayer (and he Hogwarts Legacy not planned). However, in early 2020, a third-party studio tried to release the Broomstick League, an unofficial mix of Quidditch and Rocket League. But the game shut down just a few weeks after its release – judging by the statistics on Steam, it was just that almost no one played it.
