An off screen video has surfaced on YouTube which shows an unidentified Harry Potter game. If this is a hoax it’s a mighty impressive one as there’s a lot of detail in the footage and some big set pieces.
Some are suggesting this is Rocksteady’s new game – they are part of Warner Bros who own Harry Potter and they have been working on something secret for years, so it makes sense. The other possibility is the game is being created by Avalanche – no, not that one, but Avalanche Software, a former Disney studio that WB snapped up in January 2017.
The description on the video on YouTube reads:
