when something normal they want to pass off as exceptional

Hogwarts Legacy has been, by far, one of the great successes so far this year and It will be very difficult for another title not call of duty, FIFA, etc. be able to overcome it. That’s because only between PC, PS5 and Xbox Series X | S has it managed to overcome the barrier of 12 million units. And it still needs to land on PS4, Xbox One and, finally, Nintendo Switch. So imagine all the distance he has left to walk.

A single player title

Well, the news has been produced in the last hours and many media have begun to replicate it in a way that seems very strange because there are those who see something relevant in an aspect that is not. In the first place, everyone seems to put their hands to their heads because only 25% of those who have bought Hogwarts Legacy they have finished the game, as if those figures were not the usual ones in launches focused on a single player and that they forget about multi and the on-line.

But for more INRI, there are those who have thought that It is newsworthy that a game of these characteristics has a huge peak of users at the beginning, in the first weeks, and then go down progressively. Specifically on Steam, where it has gone from 800,000 in the days immediately after it was put up for sale to less than 100,000 in the last few days. Can anyone really see something relevant that Hogwarts Legacy behave like this?

It is basically something normal in single player titles whose main campaigns can be completed in a few tens of hours. What are you going to do when you finish it? Start over? Logically no, surely with all the pain in our hearts we will have no choice but to wait patiently for a DLC release, an expansion or directly announce the second installment as soon as possible. Something that in this case of Hogwarts Legacy It will not happen, at least, for another three years.

See news where there is none

Skinny favor we do to the gamers If we confuse what is a natural evolution of a title for a player with the alarmism of another online where there is, it is essential that a critical mass of users always connected be maintained over the months. That Fortnite remains in the eighth part as indicated by the figures of Hogwarts Legacy surely worries Epic Games, which I would immediately look up the formula to avoid that indentation but Warner Games, what do you expect me to do?

A game with its history, with its main and secondary missions, which are far from servers and from being connected playing with nobody, has a huge spike in users at the beginning (when it is a success) and later it goes down for a long time until it is practically nothing. But come on, we are not discovering gunpowder. It is the same thing that has happened to all single player developments throughout history. And so it will continue to be.

Another thing is that someone sees in that increasingly reduced number something newsworthy and to give him enough hype to believe that he is discovering gunpowder.
