Footage from what might be a gameplay trailer has been leaked
It’s happening! It’s finally happening, a Harry Potter RPG is being developed! There has been a leak of what appears to be a gameplay trailer. Technically, it’s still just a rumor, but it is one that seems to be gaining momentum with each passing hour. Being a massive Harry Potter fan myself, this is some of the best news I have heard in a long time.
Of course there have been other Harry Potter games, but they were really movie tie-ins, which are never that good. These were no exception. The lego games were cute but they were hardly the action packed experience most of us were craving.
This game, which was originally thought to be a Rocksteady project, looks amazing. It seems Rocksteady is currently working on something else, so Harry Potter will be someone else under Warner Bros. with all evidence pointing to Avalanche Software. That being said there are two possible names for the game so far. It will most likely be called Harry Potter: Magic Awakened, but Magic Forever is also possible based on Lizo Mzimba’s tweet.
Sadly I can not show you what was leaked, as it has been taken down everywhere. It was originally shown on Reddit and, thankfully, there is a description of the game.
“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 eared (sic) a late acceptance to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.

Okay, all of that sounds absolutely incredible. However, that is a really in-depth description. Especially considering the video was supposedly taken sneakily on a smartphone. So I have my doubts as to whether this is actually a leak or not.
If this turns out to be true, you can expect me to being talking about this a lot. And I mean a lot. If it turns out to not be true, you can expect to find me curled in the fetal position weeping over what could have been.
