The Bloomberg report mentions PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X, but does not indicate whether there are plans to release the game on PC (although we would cautiously assume a PC launch would be planned as well).

The next-gen Harry Potter RPG that leaked yonks ago has been teased again through reports from Bloomberg. JK Rowling's recent comments about transgender people bothered at least a few of the game's developers.

The game is reportedly in development at Avalanche Software in Salt Lake City, Utah.

-Experience a new magic system that creates countless possibilities to master magic. Things have been quiet since then, but sources are beginning to speak up, confirming that the game is set in an open-world Hogwarts and other details.

-Freely explore the Wizarding World for the first time., Choose your house and friends at Hogwarts, and decide to pursue a path of good or evil.

Yet all is not well, as many developers of the title are reportedly concerned with comments made by Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling, comments that are mostly viewed as transphobic.

'People who menstruate.' I'm sure there used to be a word for those people.

It is said that the game was meant to be revealed at E3 this year, but as that was cancelled due to the Covi-19 pandemic plans were re-arranged. Interactive Entertainment's open-world Harry Potter RPG has stayed out of sight. In the most extreme case, the cost and years-long development of the game could make it a more vulnerable candidate for total cancellation, according to Matthew Kanterman, an analyst at Bloomberg Intelligence.
