When Hogwarts Legacy launched on next-gen consoles and PC, it immediately shot to the top of Twitch, shattering viewership records, and here are the top 10 streamers for the month of February.
Despite many streamers boycotting streaming, buying, and playing Hogwarts Legacy, the title quickly shot to the top of Twitch in terms of viewership. It went on to smash the Twitch viewership record for a single-player game, reaching 1.2 million concurrent viewers.
At the top of the list of streamers are the likes of Fextralife, xQc, and even the game’s own developers AvalancheSoftware.
Of course, the game has only been available in early access for a few days and was officially released on Friday, February 10, so the list is bound to fluctuate over the next month. But for now, here are the top 10 Hogwarts Legacy streamers on Twitch.

At the time of writing, just a day after the game’s official launch, Hogwarts Legacy is down to 323k concurrent viewers. This could mean the hype is dying down, as single-player games historically have difficulty retaining viewer and streamer interest.
That said, there could be a resurgence of viewers in April when the releases on Xbox One and PS4 and in July when it releases on Nintendo Switch.
