Footage and information of a Harry Potter themed open world action RPG has surfaced via Reddit user VapeThisBro, who claims to have been part of a focus test group where he got all of the info.
The footage certainly looks promising, despite clearly being an early build of the game. As you might remember, in late 2017 Warner Bros.
