Controversy Hits New Harry Potter Video Game Even Before Release Gaming

Controversy Hits New Harry Potter Video Game Even Before Release

by Donna Amo Posted on 25 Feb, 2021

The upcoming Harry Potter video game titled ‘Hogwarts Legacy’ is hit by another controversy as the political views of the game’s lead designer came under scrutiny. Even before this, publisher Warner Bros. had to make it clear that the author of the Harry Potter franchise, J.K Rowling was not directly involved in the game’s creation. This was due to a series of transphobic tweets shared by the author.

In a thread posted on Twitter by journalist Liam Roberston, it was revealed that the lead designer Troy Leavitt once had a YouTube channel filled with far-right content. The channel had videos on topics ranging from defending men accused of sexual harassment, discussions on if “thought crimes” were a real thing, and also a defense on cultural appropriation. Even though the videos were made several years ago, the content in them was enough to make headlines.

One of the videos also pointed out that Warner Bros were apparently aware of Leavitt’s views. Many people in the gaming community have expressed ethical concerns regarding the decision to support the Harry Potter game. As it would mean indirectly putting money into the pockets of those who continue to mock trans people. Now, the Levitt controversy has just highlighted this concern even more.

Admins of the popular video game forum, ResetEra, chose to ban all promotional content and discussions of the game. Which means that no threads, affiliates, trailers, or anything related to the video game will be allowed. Plagued by controversies, it is difficult to determine if Hogwarts Legacy will ever take off. The game’s release date is set way ahead in 2022, but at this rate, it might not make it to the finish line.
