Hogwarts Legacy Breaks Twitch Peak Viewership Record

Hogwarts Legacy has broken the record for the highest peak concurrent viewership for a single-player game on Twitch with 1.3 million viewers watching on Tuesday. 

This number beats the previous record set by Cyberpunk 2077 in 2020 with 1.14M concurrent viewers. Hogwarts also beat out Elden Ring which hit a peak viewership on Twitch with just over 900K viewers last year. 

Hogwarts Legacy beat out Cyberpunk 2077 for peak viewers on Twitch on its first day of release.

Resident Evil: Village and Dying Light 2: Stay Human currently sit in 4th and 5th place for peak viewership on Twitch with 657K and 640K viewers, respectively.

Hogwarts Legacy hasn’t even been released to the general public and has already become one of the most popular single-player games in live streaming ever through the influencer marketing and drops programs Warner Brothers has set up on Twitch. 

The game generated 13.7M hours watched in its first day on live streaming, and had an average minute audience of 540K.
