Post Harry Potter RPG game 'Hogwarts Legacy' promises to allow trans-inclusive characters

The Harry Potter role-playing game Hogwarts Legacy, set for 2022 release, will allow for customizable characters that will be trans-inclusive, reported Bloomberg from sources close to the game. For more information on what the customization entails, read below.

When players start up the game, they will be able to create a character that has a masculine or feminine voice no matter what their body looks like.

Players will then get to select one of two options -- “witch” or “wizard” -- that will determine the dorm they get placed in at the magical school of Hogwarts and how they are addressed by other characters in the game.
While this level of customization is not new for this type of video game, it is of note given Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling's comments from last year about the transgender community. Reportedly team members working on the Hogwarts Legacy game, as a result of Rowling's views, have fought extra-hard to make sure their game is as inclusive to all fans as possible.

Hogwarts Legacy will be available next year for PS4, PS5, XBOX One, XBOX Series X, and PC consoles.
