  • Verify your version of Hogwarts Legacy is up-to-date.
  • Update your drivers (PC).

There are two main reasons why Hogwarts Legacy is often crashing on startup. The first would be that there is an internal error that the developer must fix with a patch or update. If this is the case, the developer will likely communicate with players and update them on the patch's progress. They will also note if there are specific problems and solutions, like the Hogwarts Legacy Tweet informing players about a GeForce update.

The other reason is for PC players, specifically that your PC does not meet the required minimum settings to run and play Hogwarts Legacy. If this is the case, there is not much you can do besides upgrading your PC. Even if your PC meets the required minimum, you may need to play around with the settings to get better performance.
