Back in 2018, screenshots of what appeared to be a Harry Potter-themed RPG emerged online. Some more information has emerged about the yet-to-be-released title. According to Jason Schreier, it is billed to be announced in August 2020 and will hit the shelves in 'late' 2021.

Despite its official storyline ending over ten years ago, Harry Potter continues to be relevant in the current year. The franchise has been kept on life support via a slew of movies and books that are tangentially related to the original plot. It appears that there is a new Harry Potter game in the works too, and this time around, there are some big names involved.

Jason Schreier states that Warner Bros is working on a new Harry Potter game. It is an AAA title which is being developed by Avalanche Studios. The game will reportedly make a debut on the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X. However, we may have to wait until 'late 2021' to get our hands on it. Unlike previous Harry Potter games that followed employed a linear storyline, this one will be set in an open world modeled on Hogwarts and its nearby areas. We're likely looking at a Skyrim/Witcher-styled game set in the Harry Potter universe.

Warner Bros will announce the Harry Potter RPG alongside the new Batman game at a digital event sometime this August. The game's availability on PC remains unknown at this time, and it'll be a while before we know for sure. Meanwhile, you can check out the game's (somewhat) official subreddit for more information.
