Harry Potter Third-Person Open-World Action RPG? Yes, Please!

Hold on tight to your pointy wizarding hats, because footage from an upcoming open-world Harry Potter RPG has apparently been leaked online and it looks every bit as awesome as your mind can conjure up.

The video isn’t very long (about a minute and thirteen seconds) but it looks pretty damn convincing. While leaks like this should always be taken with a grain of wizarding salt, we’re hoping that this short clip is the real deal.

The video shows off a number of locations, characters, spells, and creatures that should be recognizable to anyone that has read the Harry Potter books or seen the films. There also appears to be a character creator of sorts which means we might be able to finally live out our Hogwarts fantasy.

There is a lot of speculation that this could be developed by Rocksteady (who has been teasing their new project on social media for quite some time) or possibly from Avalanche Studios or Monolith Productions. This makes sense since each of these companies is under the Warner Bros. video game production arm.

A detailed description of the game has also been leaked which you can read below:
