Because of the millions of Harry Potter fans around the world, Hogwarts Legacy was one of the most popular open-world games, and now, just days before the worldwide release on February 10, people are more excited than ever.
Because of the controversy surrounding J.K. Rowling, the author of the Harry Potter series, there are lots of Harry Potter lovers who are against paying to play Hogwarts Legacy on June 6, 2020, after tweeting an op-ed piece by Devex that referred to women as "men who menstruate" rather than simply using women.
Rowling has changed her mind about the fact that trans women and trans men are different than women and men, and that's why people from all over the world have pledged to boycott Harry Potter official goods in order not to give any royalties to Rowling.
Why is everyone boycotting Hogwarts Legacy? The JK Rowling controversy can be explained.
Some people are still not interested in buying the game rather than pirate it, even though Avalanche Games, the developer of Hogwarts Legacy, hasn't involved Rowling in the development and set the game almost 200 years before the events described in the original Harry Potter novel. This has left people wondering whether or not Hogwarts Legacy has Denuvo, the famous anti-cheating technology.
Is there a Denuvo anti-cheat in Hogwarts Legacy?
Yes, Hogwarts Legacy has Denuvo, the most powerful anti-cheating software, and its primary purpose is to prevent hackers from distributing the game for free right after the release, which hinders initial game sales.
Game piracy has declined since Denuvo was first created in 2014. More games are coming with Denuvo protection, but it depends on several things, including whether or not hackers are willing to take the plunge into breaking the game's anti-tampering measures.
It's unknown whether or not Hogwarts Legacy will ever be cracked, but crackers will take at least a few days or weeks before they can distribute the game on pirate websites across the internet. There were games like Devil May Cry 5 that were cracked on the first day, but that's all we can say.
