Last year, details were leaked of an upcoming Harry Potter title in development and since then, fans have been itching for more news.
This morning, Bloomberg ran an article that provided at least a little more insight into the game that’s being developed by Avalanche Software. Here’s the highlights:
- J.K.Rowling has very little direct involvement in its development.
- Hogwarts will be presented in open-world format as well as “surrounding areas”.
- It is currently scheduled for late 2021.
- It’s expected to be revealed in the coming months after DC FanDome in August.
It goes without saying that the potential for this game is massive given the IP and gameplay opportunities. Given a seemingly long development time and the power of next-gen consoles, our expectations are high. It will be nice when we get a proper look at the game in the coming months.
