Update 10:30 a.m. 3.10.2018 : Eurogamer has reported that “sources with knowledge of the project have confirmed to Eurogamer that the project is indeed real and currently in development”. Sources has also confirmed that Rocksteady is not involved with the game's development. Warner Bros. has now also removed the footage on YouTube due to a copyright claim.
Ten points to Gryffindor! A video uploaded in Youtube by RastaPasta was posted in Reddit revealing leaked gameplay footage of an unnamed Harry Potter game. Based on our impressions of the aforementioned video, it looks bloody amazing.
Information on the game was included in the video’s description and states:
Set in the 19th Century (1800’s) Wizarding World, this 3rd person open-world action RPG game centers around your character with unique abilities who has earned a late acceptance to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. You are a newly arrived 5th year student to Hogwarts that demonstrates a latent gift for magic with a unique ability to track and identify remnants of a pottant ancient power.
Upon arrival, strange events begin to materialize in the Forbidden Forest and trouble begins to brew within the castle walls. Together with Professor Elezar Fig, you embark on a journey through both familiar and never before seen locations to bring to light the truth behind these mysterious occurrences.
On your quest you will craft potions, master new spells, and discover fantastical beasts. You will battle Dark Wizards, Goblins, and other supernatural enemies and uncover the truth about your destiny – the Fate of the Wizarding World lies in your hands.
It’s highly likely that WB Games are involved with the game, but the identity of the studio behind its development is still unknown. But as excited as we are, it’s best that we’ll take it with a grain of salt. At least until this project is officially announced.
