Despite the controversy surrounding Hogwarts Legacy, it has been wildly popular since it launched on February 10 (or February 7 for those with early access). Millions of fans across the globe are dropping in to the Harry Potter world, including the top streamers on the internet showcasing their gameplay to their fans.

Since early access started, countless hours of Hogwarts Legacy have been streamed, from some of the top creators around, such as Asmongold, Summit1g, Amouranth, and more.

In fact, from February 8 to February 22, Hogwarts Legacy was the third most-watched category on Twitch, beaten out only by regular chart-topper Just Chatting and only just pipped to second by League of Legends. It hit a huge 55,051,622 hours watched in those two weeks, according to SullyGnome.
