Hogwarts Legacy surpassed Cyberpunk 2077 on Twitch
In the age of multimedia franchises, the amount of time it has taken for a high-budget Harry Potter game to come out has been a surprise for everyone. However, the gaming community has been awarded smartly for its patience.
The recently released Hogwarts Legacy, an open-world action RPG developed by Avalanche Software and published by Warner Bros Games, has been released to high praise from reviewers and fans alike.
According to the numbers available on TwitchTracker, Hogwarts Legacy registered 1.25 million concurrent viewers on Twitch. By accomplishing these numbers, Hogwarts Legacy surpassed Cyberpunk 77 to become the single-player game with the most concurrent viewers on the streaming platform.
Before Hogwarts Legacy, Cyberpunk 2077 was the most popular single-player game on Twitch, with 1.14m peak concurrent viewers. Cyberpunk 2077 was an ambitious project from popular Polish developers CD Projekt Red, and it was released to much anticipation in 2020. However, the broken state of the open-world game upon release attracted a lot of negative reviews.
The next stop on our list is occupied by 2022 hit Elden Ring, with 910,000 peak concurrent viewers. The action RPG from FromSoftware also has a multiplayer element, but we have decided to include it because it mainly attracted popularity because of its single-player campaign. The same holds true for Dying Light 2: Stay Human, in the fifth spot with 620,000 peak viewers. The 2022 action RPG was developed and published by Techland. Sandwiched between these two sits Resident Evil Village, with 655,000 peak viewers. The survival horror game from Capcom was released in 2021.
The last two spots on our list are occupied by PlayStation exclusives The Last of Us 2 and God of War: Ragnarok. The Last of Us 2, developed by Naughty Dog, registered 508,000 peak viewers on Twitch. God of War: Ragnarok, the latest iteration in the popular series, was released to rave reviews in November last year. The action-adventure game, developed by Santa Monica Studio, registered 478,000 peak viewers on Twitch.
