With news about Hogwarts Legacy heating up, fans of the series are wondering how involved the series creator, JK Rowling, will be in this new adventure.

Hogwarts Legacy is getting a brand new State of Play. It will be dedicated to showcasing its gameplay and mechanics. Similar to what PlayStation did with Gran Turismo 7.

But fans wonder what involvement we’ll see from JK Rowling on this project.

JK Rowling is the original author of the Harry Potter series that birthed the world of Hogwarts. It is the foundation that Hogwarts Legacy will be built off.

But how involved is the author in the storytelling and world of Hogwarts Legacy?

Is JK Rowling Involved With Hogwarts Legacy?

In their FAQ, Warner Bros Games has disclosed that although they will use the world JK Rowling built as a foundation, she will not be directly involved with the creation of Hogwarts Legacy.

This is something many fans of the series have been keeping an eye on. Following a recent stream of controversies fan support for JK Rowling has been on a steady decline.

Although based on a world built by her, Hogwarts Legacy will be a completely original story. The story will be written and told by the talented team over at Portkey Games.

Their FAQ explains that JK Rowling will not write these stories, nor will they be adaptations of the books.

Although they state that JK Rowling has entrusted the design and creation of the games to WB Games and Portkey Games. So even though JK Rowling is not involved, she will still receive profits from the game’s sales.

It will be interesting to see what other details Portkey Games reveals at the State of Play tomorrow.

Players worried about Hogwarts Legacy being a PlayStation exclusive can breathe a sigh of relief. Hogwarts Legacy will be available for other platforms.
