Hogwarts Legacy leak post faces DMCA by publisher


Last night, in a r/HarryPotterGame Reddit thread started by user u/signficant_spot_855, the original poster claimed that he had procured a physical copy of Hogwarts Legacy early. The user also claimed they did not intend to spoil too much but would be answering questions and giving his first impressions as they played. Purported screenshots of the game were posted in that thread, as well. At some point, this morning, that thread and the original poster's profile were deleted.

Hogwarts Legacy Physical copies leaked, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment swiftly issues DMCA

However, Reddit has a long memory, and other posts have appeared discussing the deleted thread. It seems that Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment submitted a copyright claim to have the original post removed, and the user deleted his profile as a precaution. In this subsequent Reddit post discussing the thread, a Moderator wrote that he had been contacted by what appears to be an alternate account for u/signficant_spot_855. That alternate account passed on this message: "I’m alive and well, I’ll be released from Azkaban in 7 days!"

Other Reddit posts have reacted to the situation with humor. This thread begins with a hilarious but terror-inducing meme, one that even Peeves might be proud of. The top comment is a long line of Fs in the chat to pay respect to the potential leaker whose account no longer exists.
