Ever since Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone hit bookshelves over in the U.K., audiences have been eager to experience the Wizarding World of Harry Potter themselves. While we’ve had plenty of video games hit in the two decades since, nothing has really fully measured up to the mammoth experience we’d all hoped it would be.
But is it possible they’re working on a game that could give us exactly what we want? Some folks over on Reddit leaked some footage that was quickly taken down by Warner Bros., which pretty much tells us there is indeed a game in the works. Sadly, the footage was removed before I had a chance to see it, but there was also a leaked description of the game, which is pretty great.
Check it out below:
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 a late acceptance to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.

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.

While I haven’t seen any footage myself, this does seem promising, and I can only hope that this measures up to a fraction of my expectations, because the games they’ve released so far haven’t bee up to snuff.
