The leaked footage from the Harry Potter RPG is being removed worldwide after copyright claims from WB. This not only proves its existence but the leak’s legitimacy as well.
It is rumored that WB is partnering with Rocksteady to develop this new RPG. These two companies have a long-standing partnership. Rocksteady games worked on Batman Arkham games which makes this studio the most likely candidate for developing Harry Potter.
What’s interesting is that this isn’t the first time we are hearing of this game. Back 2017, a rumor first mentioned a Harry Potter RPG. At the time Just Cause creator Avalanche was linked to the project when a job posting came up. And some aspects of the job listing stood out. The in a development project is reportedly called Harry Potter: Magic Awakened.
