No characters from the novels or movies are present in Hogwarts Legacy because it takes place far earlier than the events depicted in those works. Ron Weasley, for instance, isn’t present in the game. He still has a long way to go before birth. There is a Weasley in the game, though. In addition to confirming this, a new video also gave us our first glimpse of the figure, who as you might assume had red hair. Unfortunately, there isn’t a lot of information about the character, and it’s not made clear what part they play.
The character Hector Weasley seems to be identical to Hector Jenkins, which is when things start to become strange. Hector Jenkins is depicted in prior and official marketing materials for the game, as Twitter user Eugune the Magical notes on Twitter. However, the same figure appears to go by the name of Hector Weasley in a recent behind-the-scenes film.
Although it’s currently unclear what’s happening, this seems to be our first encounter with a Weasley character. You might recall that Avalanche Software previously hinted that “a Weasley or two” would appear in the game, but up until this point, the characters hadn’t been revealed.
Hogwarts Legacy is scheduled to release worldwide on February 10, 2023, via Nintendo Switch, PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series S, and Xbox Series X.
