Hogwarts Legacy Hits Over 350k Concurrent Players Within a Day

It is the game's all-time high, and considering it is not even a day old, it might be on the way to setting some records.

Hogwarts Legacy early access was released less than a day ago, and despite some early issues with Steam, it seems like players have started grinding in the game straight away. Our team at TopTierList found that the game has hit its first milestone and amassed over 350k concurrent players as of writing this article.

The number is at its current peak, and considering the game has shown all signs of becoming one of the most popular releases, we expect it to go much higher. The concurrent player count is taken from SteamDB, and it continues to go higher as we speak.

Soon enough, the game should hit even bigger milestones and might prove itself to be on the same level, if not higher, than Elden Ring and Cyberpunk 2077. These concurrent players are also exclusive to the early access, so it might get a big boost once the game is available for all on 10th February.

Major Points

  • Hogwarts Legacy has reached over 350k concurrent players on Steam.
  • The number is exclusive to the players in early access, so it can get much higher once the game is available for all.
  • Since the game is a Top Seller on Steam, we expect it to reach or even break records set by Elden Ring and Cyberpunk 2077.

Hogwarts Legacy continued to set records in its pre-order period, becoming the Top Seller, being overtaken only for a short time. It performed so well that the pre-order sales were looking similar to what we saw in Elden Ring and Cyberpunk 2077

Those two games were some of the biggest games we have seen in the past few years, and Hogwarts Legacy is performing on the same level as them, sales-wise. Now that the early access has been released, we can also see how well the game is doing in terms of concurrent players.

The game comfortably sits at over 350k concurrent players, which is the peak count since its release, and it hasn’t even been a day since then. The numbers also show only the early access players, as the game is unavailable for those who purchased Standard Edition. After 10th February, we might see a huge boost in these numbers.

The game shows all signs of life, and we expect it to reach even bigger milestones since it has shown so much potential. So far, players have not witnessed many issues in the game, and more have been convinced to purchase the game themselves.

Hogwarts Legacy Early Access
Top 10 Most Played Games On Steam.

It is not an understatement to say that the game will likely reach or even break the peak player count of other massive releases like Elden Ring and Cyberpunk 2077. Currently, the game is in the top 5 most played games on Steam and will soon come at the top with its fast pace.

It should also be noted that the player count continues to rise, so by the time you are reading this, it can even be twice as much, so be sure to check the SteamDB for the latest update. Once the game reaches an even bigger milestone, we will be back to update you on this massive goal.

The game has emerged victorious amidst the controversy. Even though many people are still trying to take the game’s reputation down, we don’t see any signs of stopping this upcoming sensation.

The only thing that might affect the game on some level is the renowned cracker, Empress, who has promised to make a crack for Hogwarts Legacy within 10 days of release. Even though it is denuvo-protected, Empress is familiar with such games and has cracked some in the past. 

That is all for now! Are you one of the players enjoying this game in early access? If so, how has your experience been so far? And do you think the game will hit the biggest challenge of hitting 1m concurrent players? Share your thoughts with us below, and we will get back to you!
