It’s been a while since we last have seen Harry Potter in action when it comes to videogames. For those who missed him, there’s apparently a Harry Potter videogame that has been leaked and it’s looking to be pretty cool if true.
The alleged leak that was posted on Reddit details that the upcoming Harry Potter game is an action RPG. It’s said to be set in the 19th century and will focus on your “own” character with unique abilities who has earned a late acceptance to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.
From the video alone, it’s looking to be a promising game. Here’s what the fact sheet that was provided:
Set in the 19th Century (1800s) Wizarding World, this third-person open-world action RPG game centers around your character with unique abilities who has eared a late acceptance to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. You are a newly arrived fifth 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 Forrest 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.
- Journey to Hogwarts to become one of 8 different Wizard types.

- Experience a new magic system that creates countless possibilities to master magic.
- Freely explore the Wizarding World for the first time.

Could this be a title from Warner Bros. Interactive? Back in April 2017, the company have been seeking senior writers “with a deep understanding of British culture and grammatical presentation” for its Avalanche Software studio, suggesting that the Disney Infinity developer could be responsible for this upcoming title.
In my opinion, this upcoming Harry Potter game will not be titled as Harry Potter but could get a different title instead since Harry Potter isn’t the main protagonist on this one. It sure is set in the Harry Potter universe but we’ll have to see where it goes.
Another theory is that this Harry Potter title is currently developed by RockSteady. If real, this will turn out really good. It’s been a while since we last heard from the company and I wouldn’t be surprised if they’re the one involved in this title. So far, we’re excited.
