That had everybody hoping Quidditch would naturally be included, but... nah.

If Hogwarts Legacy does well enough, adding Quidditch as DLC might be well worth their time, and it might just come hand in hand with some multiplayer... who knows? Then again, let's wait until the game releases, before talking about DLC...
