Avalanche Software has made it clear that upon launch, players won't be able to play Quidditch matches as the popular sport isn't included in Hogwarts Legacy. This decision is seemingly connected to the game's main story as it was banned by the current Hogwarts headmaster, Professor Black.
Despite this, many players still hold out that the sport will be included in a DLC later on, which may have some plausible evidence it could be the case. In particular, you can find the Golden Snitch in Hogwarts Legacy, which has made itself a home in Hogwarts Castle. Here's where you can find it.
REMINDER - Hogwarts Legacy was due to launch on PS4 and Xbox One on April 4, but now won't release until 5 May 2023.
