J.K. ROWLING 'CONTROVERSY' BOOST
Despite many looking for the latest trailers, gameplay, and info about Hogwarts Legacy, it's no doubt that part of the Google searches for this game stem from the controversial statements made by Harry Potter author, J.K. Rowling, about the trans community.
Warner Bros. Interactive, the game's publisher, stated that Rowling isn't involved in creating Hogwarts Legacy, developed by Avalanche, but considering it's based on her Harry Potter franchise, she surely profits from it.
Nevertheless, it became a hot topic in many top Google searches.
