New Harry Potter Video Game Will Feature Trans Witches & Wizards

The newest Harry Potter video game titled Hogwarts Legacy will allow players to create trans characters. 

The game will allow players to customize their character’s voice, body type and gender placement for the school dormitories. Characters can have a masculine or feminine voice no matter what body type they choose. They will then select either ‘witch’ or ‘wizard’ to determine the dorm they’re placed in.

Some members of the Hogwarts Legacy development team have pushed for this trans-inclusive character creation following the explosive comments on trans lives and healthcare from Harry Potter author JK Rowling. They also reportedly have pushed for a specific trans character.

The report claims that there was resistance from management at first, but this customization has now been added in the game in an effort to be more inclusive.
Hogwarts Legacy is set to be released some time in 2022.
