Leaked Footage of Harry Potter RPG

UPDATED: Apparently, the game is real and is being developed by Utah-based Avalanche Software (of Disney Infinity fame).

Take this leaked footage with a mountain of salt, but it appears that Rocksteady Studios (developer of the Batman: Arkham Trilogy) has been working on a new game set in the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. According to the description of this video, the game takes place in the 19th century and allows players to take control of a 5th-year student in this 3rd-person RPG. I’ve been vocal about wanting a good Harry Potter RPG in the past, so this trailer is exactly what the doctor ordered. Setting the game outside the events of the main Harry Potter series is a good move in my opinion as it will allow players to experience new events and locales (if the description is to be believed). While we wait for official confirmation, I’m going to be packing my bags and checking my mailbox frequently for a letter from Hogwart’s.
