Harry Potter is an extremely popular novel and film franchise that has generated unprecedented success for Warner Bros. However, the Harry Potter games have been lackluster to say the least. Right now, the best interactive experiences are with Lego branding. It looks like the company is aware of this issue and wants to turn it around.
Today, footage leaked of what appears to be a Harry Potter open-world role-playing game (RPG). The title features amazing visuals, stunning locales, and a lot of wand-based combat. According to Eurogamer, the game might be called Harry Potter: Magic Awakened or something very similar.
From what we know, it seems that Avalanche Software — not to be confused with Avalanche Studios — is working on the game. However, as with any such leak, treat it with a grain of salt until we have official confirmation. We've reached out to Warner Bros. for comment and shall let you know as soon as we receive a response. However, given the fact that the company is taking down the trailer from YouTube and other such websites, it seems like the game is real.
What do you want to see from the Harry Potter PRG? Let us know. Avalanche Software has previously worked on games like Cars 3: Driven to Win, Disney Infinity, and Prince of Persia: Arabian Nights. Hopefully the developer has accumulated enough experience to tackle the challenge of a "AAA" Harry Potter game.
