Hogwarts Legacy Lead Designer Quits Avalanche Software Amidst YouTube Channel Backlash

The lead designer of Hogwarts Legacy at developer Avalanche Software has parted ways with the company, after receiving considerable backlash from a YouTube channel they operated.

Troy Leavitt was discovered to have run a “reactionary YouTube channel focused on attacking feminism and social justice,” and while he has now said he felt ‘absolutely secured’ in his position, he’s made the decision to depart the company.

We’ve embedded Leavitt’s tweets below for you to read.

Hogwarts Legacy has been making headlines quite a bit recently, and it was reported earlier this week that the game will feature the ability to create transgender characters in wake of author J.K. Rowling’s perceived transphobic comments last summer.
