Hogwarts Legacy isn't a small game, and you should expect the main story to take around 30 hours to complete. That's ignoring any sidequests, puzzles, or treasures that take you away from your main objective.
To add context, Morgan, our reviewer, was 30 hours into the game "with no end in sight" when he published his Hogwarts Legacy review-in-progress (opens in new tab).
