You play Mortal Kombat 11, maybe you want to buy Hogwarts Legacy right now? Don’t you want to buy it? We’ll make you believe in buying it! In other words, we will bother you until you buy it.
Mortal Kombat 11 players are starting to complain about Hogwarts Legacy ads popping up all the time. on site RedditThe community of players began sharing images revealing how the game’s advertisements filled the interface of Mortal Kombat 11, and many of them began to be disturbed by the intensity of the appearance and frequency of these advertisements.
When clicking on the advertisement link, which is sometimes done by mistake by the players, the player is taken to the device store, whether it is the PlayStation Store or the Xbox Store. This is another annoying thing that players can experience sometimes.
Perhaps Warner Bros can promote its new game through its previous games, especially Mortal Kombat 11, which has a large audience. But is it legal for the company to place ads inside a game that was purchased at the full price of $60?
This matter remains a matter of controversy, but what is known and always in effect is that when the user purchases a game at its full price, the publisher does not have the right to place any advertisements inside the game in any way. But it seems that Warner Bros. sees the matter in another way, especially since the two titles are owned by it.
Why the hell is there an Ad in a whole fighting game I paid for?? This aint cool. I dont wanna see ads of other products in something I paid full price for…

We do not know whether these criticisms and complaints that began to circulate on the Internet will affect the publisher’s decision to remove these advertisements or not.
Hogwarts Legacy sold 256% more than expected at launch. It exceeded 12 million copies in the first two weeks of release. While it made more than 850 million dollars during the same period. It also broke a new Twitch record, becoming the most-watched AAA single-player game on the platform.
On the other hand, Warner Bros. is preparing to release Mortal Kombat 12, so it may be sensitive at this time to disturb players and give a negative impression that the series in the future becomes an open advertising space for other company’s games.
Do you think that Warner Bros has the right to display ads for its new games in its other games even if players buy this game at full price?
