Hogwarts Legacy is officially 2023’s best-selling game worldwide

During Nintendo's latest earnings call, the company shared the total sales number for Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, ending the debate for the best-selling game of 2023. With over 22 million copies, Hogwarts Legacy has officially beaten out The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom as 2023's best-selling game worldwide, which sold 20.28 million copies.

Warner Bros. Interactive shared the sales figures for the Harry Potter game almost a month ago, but back then, the total sales numbers for The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom were still unknown. There was speculation that Zelda could have surpassed it in global sales, especially since Nintendo's digital sales figures were not disclosed outside of its financial results, which were only recently shared.

It's worth noting that Hogwarts Legacy was launched in February 2022, three months before The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom's exclusive release on the Nintendo Switch. Despite this, Tears of the Kingdom still managed to sell an impressive 20.28 million copies in 2023.

Throughout the year, Hogwarts Legacy remained a chart-topper globally, with its delayed release on various platforms contributing to its success. Warner Bros plans to continue building on the success of the Harry Potter franchise with upcoming projects like Harry Potter: Quidditch Champions and others.
