Almost every major fandom or media franchise has spawned some impressive mobile games in the past few years, be it Pokémon, Star Wars, or even Game of Thrones. Once a franchise becomes popular, releasing a mobile game is the logical next step for any company. Surprisingly, Harry Potter, one of the most successful media franchises of all time, hasn’t had much luck in the gaming department.
Although Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery, the mobile game, had some moderate success when it was released back in 2018, the fans were left waiting for a better game from the developers. Coincidentally the very same years, fans were treated with a glimpse from the Warner Brothers’ Harry Potter RPG (Harry Potter Magic Awakened), whose footage was seemingly leaked on the internet.
Harry Potter Magic Awakened was seemingly confirmed when a Character Vault Guide was photographed underneath one of the employer’s desk at the Avalanche Studio Group’s office. Now, one Reddit user has claimed that the game might not be as far away as the fans may think.
According to u/CorGrahven, who claims to be a voice-over artist, Warner Bros. is in talks with a distributing company to have subtitles ready, for a certain language, for a Harry Potter game to be released in 2021. The user didn’t name the language, country, or the distribution company involved, but he did believe that the information relates to the Harry Potter RPG game.
While Warner Bros. has remained silent about this news, fans will have to find solace in the fact that the leaked gameplay content indeed seems to be genuine enough to be true. Hopefully, Warner Bros. will listen to the fans and provide some actual details about the game they’ve been eagerly waiting for for the past 2 years.
