Here is a link to the wiki regarding the developer.

Avalanche_Software

Their most notable recent project I would say was Disney Infinity, though it appears as though WB is really building them up (again according to rumors, they are increasing staff and are being given increased resources).

Deal in licenced games. Hmm, worrying. But that doesn't mean without the right freedom and creativity they can't create something good but if it's a WB game I'd worry.

Reading the from the Youtube video it seems pretty ambitious. There's so much potential in a concept like this, if it could have the depth of Dragon Age but set in Hogwarts. Really want to see more.

If it allows freedom of play style it could be a great thing, specialise in destructive magic or potions to help you instead or whatever to get past the enemy in your way, not just the way the game says to.

Need to wait and get more information before I decide how I feel about it.

Were the old Harry Potter games based on the films on Xbox/Playstation 2 any good?

They were 'mixed'. I mean they are licenced games based on the movies, how many games like that are really any good? they have to follow film/book story and have little freedom. They were made by EA Bright Light who EA closed after they finished the last game of the film.



Hmm, pie.

Interesting. Looks impressive. Developer any good?

In my experience they are bad. They have good ideas but the execution is always lacking. They did just cause, mad Max, and now working on rage 2

 

Its not the same dev you are confusing Avalanche Soft (former Disney studio and current WB studio; who are making this Harry Potter game) with Avalanche Studios (the people who made Just Cause and Mad Max).

Sounds like the kind of game I might enjoy.



If you demand respect or gratitude for your volunteer work, you're doing volunteering wrong.

Not sure how many people even remember this game now, but this was a legit great game. The only licensed game that stands out for me anyway.



Sounds really promising. Hopefully we'll get a proper reveal soon then.

There seems to be some footage leaked from a AAA Harry Potter game. This could be the Avalanche (studio owned by WB as of 2017) Harry Potter game that was previously rumoured. The game is apparently an open world action RPG taking place in the 19th century, and you can apparently create your own character.

Benji, who is one of the insiders on Resetera, is hinting that the game will not be coming until at least 2020 and that it is likely a cross-gen game at this point.

EDIT: I can't seem to embed the Youtube video so I have provided a link below to it instead.

Leaked video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=1&v=2-HER1xKQl4

considering the graphics and the environmental destruction it look like a PC/PS5/XB2



gameplay looks insane :) thats gonna be amasing when it releases.



Looks awesome! This is definitely on my radar now.



Looks good, but probably too good for Switch unfortunately.



Hope it turns out well. I would love to play this game.
