As expected, “Hogwarts Legacy” has already been classified as transphobic due to JK Rowling’s views

We have some sympathy for the developers at Avalanche Studios. In the mid-2010s, it achieved license for Harry Potterone of the hottest properties in entertainment history, and set out to create the game of dreams for fans. Hogwarts legacy gives players their very own invitation to the magic school and the opportunity to carve their own path through the wizarding world.

Unfortunately, the reputation of Harry Potter and its creator JK Rowling are no longer what they were when development began. Rowling is now notorious for antagonizing the trans community Fantastic Beasts Film franchise is in tatters and there is a very public boycott against it Hogwarts legacy because – quite understandably – the purchase puts money in the pocket of a woman with deeply questionable views.

A taste of what’s to come when the game finally releases can already be seen on the game’s Steam Store page, labeled with the labels “Transphobia” and “Transphobia”:

It’s worth noting that users can add these tags themselves, so this isn’t Steam or Valve’s verdict. In any case, the labels have now been removed from the shop, although this seems inevitable Hogwarts legacy‘s release will provoke an inordinate amount of drama.

Many gamers who see themselves as allies of the trans community are weighing whether playing the game is the right thing to do. Some put their money where their mouth is and play something else in February, no matter how well Hogwarts legacy will be checked. Some swear to pirate the game to deprive Rowling of any income from it. Others believe they’ve threaded the moral needle and say they only want to support hard-working developers.

All that means Hogwarts legacy will be an interesting litmus test of who actually supports trans people and who does it just to score. As always, the proof will be in the pudding. As expected, “Hogwarts Legacy” has already been classified as transphobic due to JK Rowling’s views
