Fans of Harry Potter that got to play Hogwarts Legacy recently were disappointed to find out that the franchise’s magical sport Quidditch was absent. Many were hoping that a piece of downloadable content would finally add the fabled sport that Harry and his Hogwarts classmates played during his time at the School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Though we won’t see any Quidditch DLC for Hogwarts Legacy any time soon, Harry Potter fans looking to get their fix on Quidditch will have an entirely different game to check out. It might be time to get those flying broom skills ready.
Warner Bros. Games announced a standalone game called Harry Potter: Quidditch Champions. The game will allow players to participate in the iconic Wizarding World sport in a competitive multiplayer setting. Very few details about the game are currently available outside of the initial announcement, but WB Games did state that signups for a playtest of Quidditch Champions are open. Fans of Harry Potter can visit the Warner Bros. Games website for Quidditch Champions and sign up to join the playtest, which will allow you to create a custom character and play with others online.

While no specific platforms were given for the game, multiple outlets are reporting that it will be for both consoles and PC. Playing Quidditch Champions will also require a constant internet connection. The game has been in development for several years by Unbroken Studios, whose previous work includes the battle royale game Fractured Lands and assisting Rocksteady Studios on the recently delayed Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League. Warner Bros. Games will also publish Harry Potter: Quidditch Champions under the Portkey Games label.
In addition to everything announced with the playtest and reveal, no official release date for the game was given. Quidditch is a major part of the Wizarding World of Harry Potter franchise. Previous video games based on the Harry Potter films and books have included Quidditch in some form, either as mini-games or as a full game, such as in Harry Potter: Quidditch World Cup back in 2003. With the announcement of Harry Potter: Quidditch Champions, this will mark the first next-gen version of the sport we’ve seen in a long time. Whether we’ll still see something like Hogwarts Legacy get its own version of Quidditch is anyone’s guess, but anybody that was in the mood for this magical sport will get their fix soon enough.
