    HP Leak.

    Earlier today, a new YouTube video was making some buzz as it showed footage of an unannounced Harry Potter game. While it has since been taken down from YouTube, you can still watch it via this mirror. The video appears to be pretty polished, showing off some of the game's features and could possibly have been prepared as an announcement trailer.

    The leak came from Reddit user VapeThisBro who managed to capture the trailer while he took part in a focus group and further provided the following information regarding the game:

    This really seems like a Crucio information for a leak.
    Nonetheless, I've been waiting for that kind of HP game for over a decade!

    Fuck yes i would love this !!! But seeing it is WB it will probably littered with tons of micro transactions like hogwards mystery. So as much as i would love this, i'm pretty sure it will be a micro transaction mess

    A micro transaction defender, ofcourse. Well you enjoy your microtransaction filled games then. I advise you to play hogwarts mystery then

    I am kinda excited, though I doubt it will be good, as most Harry Potter games aren't.

    Holy shit... That looks amazing. Let's just hope it isn't going to be like the huge cock up Hogwarts Mystery was. From what I saw, that game was terrible.

    Thank you based God, YES. This is what I've wanted since I was a little kid.

    I really can't express how happy I am if this turns out to be true.

    OK, I'm interested. But will it be on switch? And likely this is a prequel to fantastic beasts since we are dealing with Wild west era witches and wizards.

    could be good or not, depends on the actual fighting mechanics and if there are some interesting collectibles/side quests.

    WANT. NOW!

    TL;DR: This could be the game I've been waiting to play since 2002. Or, on the other hand, could be a lootbox-infested microtransaction hellhole, and with Warner Bros' recent treatment of Lord of the Rings with Shadow of War, my feelings are between insane hype and anxious trepidation.

    You mean Harry is a wizard? So Hagrid didn't lie about it.

    It looks cool, but it looks way beyond finished.
    Also, it's taken off-screen, can I add that to the list of all the 238532978534252438597329678 leaks where an image was taken off-screen?

    I want three things from this game
    • Fun gameplay
    • To not be written like a bad fan fiction (I'm looking at you, Voldemort: Origins of the Heir)
    • No “modern bullshittery” (microtransactions, loot boxes, cut content sold as DLC, etc.)
    If this game can accomplish all of these, I'll love it. I really like the Harry Potter universe (it's probably the most realistic and believable magic universe ever) and I despise how it's been treated as of late.

    I always wondered to myself "why don' they do this". Well, now they are finally doing it apparently. With proper direction and a reduced amount of greed, this could really work.
