Rumour: Big Budget Harry Potter Game Is Coming To Xbox Series X Next Year

We've heard multiple rumours over the past couple of years about a supposed Harry Potter game in development by Avalanche Software, and a new report from Bloomberg has suggested the game is very real, and will be released for Xbox Series X (and other platforms) in late 2021.

According to the report, the big-budget game will let players "role-play as wizards and roam a vast, open-world re-creation of Hogwarts and its surrounding areas."

It's said that Warner Bros. had originally planned to unveil the game at E3 2020, but will now showcase its Batman game at the DC FanDome event in August, with Harry Potter set to come later. These plans were reportedly made before J.K. Rowling was heavily criticised for her recent comments on Twitter, although the author apparently has "very little direct involvement" with the game.
