So May 2022 then

For a game that could theoretically come out as soon as mid-late April, I find it a little odd that we haven't heard a thing about it since it was announced last September. I mean this game has been in development for over four, likely more, years at this point.

Just odd, not complaining. I'm stoked for it (or at least what it appears to be).

I agree. If we don't hear much by Decembe

timeframe, it's definitely going to be delayed.

Harry Potter game will have built in hype and sales. They probably don’t want to create a Cyberpunk situation and overhype them selves.

I said the same thing a few weeks ago and some genius said it was a terrible take, like what? Lol. Literally the last thing we heard about the game was that it was going to be delayed and that was back in January of this year. Here it is almost a full year later and we still know nothing. It’s just strange to not hear anything at all and the game is supposed to release next year.

Gotham Knights is rumoured for April 2022, wonder if WB would release two AAA games so close to each other. Feel like Gotham Knights is more likely though, just because it's closer to The Batman, and has more footage.

Lego Star Wars is also supposed to release in spring 2022 also published by Warner

Please don't suck please don't suck. There is so so much potential but I'm trying to keep my expectations low

ID: hjthxz2

Wb usually puts out decent games as a whole, I trust it'll be a good atleast 6/10 game

Can’t believe there’s a third FB film even coming out. I’m a massive Harry Potter nerd and I see zero hype for this film and no one actually wanting it.

I’m excited for Hogwart’s Legacy though, feels like a game I’ve wanted to play for 20 years.

ID: hjtknco

I loved the first one. The second one, I remember watching and thinking "that wasn't as bad as everyone said, I actually enjoyed it." But now I'm thinking back and I remember almost nothing about it, which kind of says a lot.

ID: hjtl9vf

I wish they had just let the Fantastic Beasts series continue as fun, whimsical, beast-filled adventures to flesh out the Harry Potter world outside of our usual stories and characters. 1 was great for that but 2 pivoted into a full Dumbledore prequel story. Which could have been fine on its own but the Newt/ fantastic beasts stuff felt so forced in.

ID: hjtlc9j

It wasn't a terrible movie. But exactly, it was completely forgettable. The first one was so disconnected storyline-wise that all I remember is chasing a few magical creatures around, and then the kid turns out to be so depressed its creating an emo monster or something? And then the guy gets a bakery.

ID: hjtec8u

fb 2 killed every interest i had in the future of the franchise, i hope the game is good thoug

ID: hjthmmq

Rumor is some director wants to make a movie of the Cursed Child with the same cast

ID: hjtiyxz

Honestly, as soon as the first one stopped being a buddy cop movie about tracking down rare and exotic magical animals, my interest disappeared. Still haven't seen the second one. Don't really plan to.

ID: hjtvv1d

FB 1 killed any interest I had in the franchise when it became clear that the FB part of it was always going to be a side to the actual story they’re telling.

ID: hjteyad

Yea man. I used to be such a fucking Potter head that it was unreal. And I couldn't be bothered with it. I've heard it was supposed to be 5 films. Just make it a trilogy and let it be.

But I do hope the game is awesome. Dreamt of this back in middle school days.

ID: hjtm9du

Fantastic beasts (I think the second one) is the only movie I actively decided to walk out of because I was bored out of my mind in the theatres.

ID: hjtvts4

The second movie had a budget of $200 million and grossed $650 million. That’s why they are making another one.

I’m so hyped for this game, potential is huge. The main thing that I hope is they nail a formula that keeps us engaged (addicted) for a long time with things that will really make us feel like a student, and not a loop that gets old/repetitive quickly.

ID: hjtnjvg

Whereas I just want to be let loose in the castle and the surrounding grounds lol. I will spend a shameful number of hours wandering the place and just taking it all in.

ID: hjuhenq

Yea encountering wild shit in the forbidden forest could be amazing. Or finding the chamber of secrets or something? Hope this lives up to the hype.

It certainly will be release before or after the next FB movie.

7 : Anonymous2021/11/08 15:41 ID: hjtbr3v

There's no way this won't disappoint people. There's such an absurd amount of untapped potential and ideas for a Harry Potter game and practically no way to pull all of it off from a game dev standpoint.

Maybe if they stick with this and make it a series, they'll be able to eventually do all the stuff people are hoping for, but Hogwarts: Life Simulator is not going to happen here.

ID: hju3xkw

For me, as long as it has good gameplay/mechanics and an okay story I'll probably love it. I just hope they don't try and do too much to the point of other aspects of the game suffering.

8 : Anonymous2021/11/08 15:45 ID: hjtccyj

Really hope this game doesn’t suck

Slytherin house for the win!

10 : Anonymous2021/11/08 15:19 ID: hjt8njg

I think alot of people are going to be disappointed when they can't really dive deep into the dark arts because of the targeted audience. How evil will they let you be?

11 : Anonymous2021/11/08 13:19 ID: hjstgq1

There’s another fantastic beasts movie? Dammit..

ID: hjstx1g

There’s gonna be 5 in total isn’t there?

ID: hjt2uxc

I’ll be shocked if they actually do that at this point. The first one was very mediocre (this is the point they announced they were making 5), the second one was universally panned, and now we’ll see how the new one is. They better have started to plan to wrap it up in 4 because if this one is as bad as the last, it’s going to fizzle out fast, and they’re not going to want to leave HP fans like Divergent fans got left, with 1 movie left in the story.

12 : Anonymous2021/11/08 16:27 ID: hjtif5k

From a massive Harry Potter fan I don’t know if I’ve been more excited for a game. I know I shouldn’t get my hopes up, but there is just unlimited potential

13 : Anonymous2021/11/08 14:15 ID: hjt02jn

Really just want the game to have a sorta Persona-like feel to it. Go to school/develop relationships during the day, do wizard shit after class. I think that would be hella tight

ID: hjt47v1

I’d rather avoid all the constant micromanaging of Persona myself. It works for Persona but I don’t wanna see that formula here.

ID: hjt5xym

Yeah, it could go the way of Fire Emblem: Three Houses where it's just a tedious list of tasks and people to talk to.

ID: hjufs7k

Oh there's no way they go full Persona here, they're not that kind of studio and it's not that kind of audience. There's just no way.

But taking the general skeleton of Persona and trimming it down to fit modern, Western expectations of open-world-with-hub RPG style games? They could do really really well.

ID: hjt61aw

Would much rather Bully

And when tah fuck issat!?

ID: hjtlyvf

Like April 2022. So not even far away.

They’ll need something to recover from the loss they’ll take on fantastic beasts. Removing Johnny Depp is a terrible decision.

ID: hjtr3vo

Removing Johnny Depp is a terrible decision.

Approving the script for FB2 was a worse one.

ID: hjtcves

Yeah, it's too bad. I am curious to see how Mads Mikkelsen does as a replacement though, he's awesome.

ID: hjthjdc

I think Mikkelson is a better choice for the character anyway. He does sinister way better than Depp.

But FB2 was so dumb that I’m not expecting much out of the third movie.

ID: hjtm7ey

Mikkelsen should've been him in the first place imho.

Can't wait to play as wizard.

ID: hjt486e

Maybe you play as the janitor or the train driver

ID: hjt4w1a

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban's cellmate

ID: hjtddwl

Maybe you can focus on healing, potions, herbs, dark arts, auror, snatcher, changeling, etc

ID: hjtc1pk

You will be a muggle.
