I'm fighting the urge so hard to not re-read the series for the 40th time again now haha. Thank you for the order!
 
I'm wondering how many universes there are for the wizarding world, knowing how different games (even different ports of the same game) detour from the main book/movie plot.

canonically only one, since nobody sayed that games and movies are other universes, all of this is supported from the fact that magiority of the canon information about the past events in the wizarding world came from the movies and games. That's why with the upcoming TV Series I hope the clear this out.
 
Yeah, now that I think about it, Lord of the Rings must be similar.
The Middle-Earth universe has canonically 2 universes:
  • Novels, made by all the novels plus some tie-in games and the Shadow games. This is called the Legendarium also.
  • Movies, made by the 2 trilgies RoP and the Shadow games. This is called The Middle-Earth Cinematic Universe also.
the shadow games basically are the same thing as the Beast Wars Transformers tv series and media. Basically they have lore informatin that goes well with the novels and not the movies, and has lore information that goes well with movies and not with the novels.

There must be at least another one for the old animated movies (?)

The movies, games and books have to be different universes due to the fact that they differ from one another. This is the case with most adaptations.

I mainly meant with the adaptation games in mind. They have contradicting information about events that transpired, like all the Chamber of Secrets games having entirely different means of Harry getting the ingredients for the polyjuice potion. (like him traveling to Diagon Alley for them in one port for example). The Deathly Hallows Part 2 game also has a scene at the credits where Harry looks into the Pensieve and sees his past adventures starting from the first game (though this could be easily interpreted as a meta scene for the fans).

I agree that the other games can be easily fit into the canon of the books/films, like Hogwarts Legacy.
 
Oh, yes. Those games are part of film canon I take it, though loosely apply to book canon.

TDH2 game makes the other adaptations canon?

I know, that Is the reason why I sayed "I Hope that with the new series WB clear this out" I don't want another raimy Trilogy Like universe.

I would agree that the shadow games could be set in the Movie universe, but there are so much discrepancies concerning the book's lore, from the timeline not matching up, to characters being inserted where they should not be and the whole Shelob thing that was never implied by Tolkien anywhere that I'd say it would be a stretch adding it to a book timeline, but that is for another thread :p

This is what I was referring to. It's obviously a nod to the whole series of games by the devs to the fans, but could be interpreted as Harry reminiscing of the entire adventure he went through since his first year.

You're right about the discrepancies, but there are a lot of things that are possible, Like Shelob.

They are certainly not canon to the books and will never be. Tolkien canon is very exclusive. They also take on the esthetic of the films, so they're meant to be part of that world.
