Leaked Footage From HARRY POTTER Game may be Real

There might be a new HARRY POTTER role-playing game coming soon!

On Tuesday some (now blocked) footage leaked on Reddit which was supposedly from an upcoming Harry Potter role-playing game. No one knew if this was real or not, but then a BBC journalist confirmed the news, saying that it’s from a game entitled Harry Potter: Magic Awakened. 

This is very exciting news for all us potterheads out there, and though there’s no official confirmation, this is something I think we’d all like to see become a reality! The footage contains shots of fantastic beasts, the Hogwarts Great Hall, and some spell-casting by the characters. The Reddit thread also included a blurb for the game:
