- Sumo Nottingham and Red Kite Games will be assisting in the development of Hogwarts Legacy
over 1000 people are working on this game. can't wait to see the gameplay in tgaID: hnv39kn
Has it been confirmed that they're showing gameplay footage?ID: hnv4tj8
There are speculations that some kind of asset may be shown in tga. Nothing is confirmed yet however.ID: hnwstr6
I'm excited to see how it goes but I wouldn't be surprised if it's not out til 2023. It's become a trend to delay game releases and this one sounds like it's still early in development.ID: hnwtigi
no it's not. companies always brings contractors in mid cycle of the development. I think 2022 is a safe bet.ID: hnvy50m
Where are you guys getting that 1k figure?ID: hnvylym
a YouTube guy had in interview with someone from development team. he said over 1k people are working on this game, 150 in the office
Idk if this is a good sign or bad signID: hnv0343
It is a normal thing in the industry, especially with such a big game that you have several support studiosID: hnvlul2
Yeah but it’s only became a recent trend to announce it, which I still find a bit oddID: hnveue1
Naughty Dog routinely has studios helping them.
This is normal.
Same with movies having reshoots.ID: hnvc1u3
It’s hard to say by the wording. If they had said they’ve joined to help, that would maybe be a bad sign.
But how long have they been working with them?ID: hnv4rv1
Lot of cooks in the kitchenID: hnvbszs
Not really. It's only an issue if you're bringing in a bunch of studios and trying to give all of them creative control.ID: hnv88c7
I doubt they are the cooks.
This means either the teams have already been working on the project or they just signed on to support. I really hope it’s the former. I hope this game comes out next year.
Seems.. a little late to announce that no? I mean the games supposed to be out next year.
Damnnnn 1k people , safe to assume they have some super lofty goals for the scope of the game. I was assuming it would all take place in the school grounds / hogwarts dungeons like a persona type of gameID: hnvwvl7
I was assuming it would all take place in the school grounds
The first trailer says "There is a larger world beyond these walls" as it shows Hogsmeade, so make of that what you will. I suppose Hogsmeade is arguably close enough to basically be considered "school grounds" though.ID: hnvy0pq
Tell that to Harry who couldn’t get his permission slip signed to leave school grounds and go to Hogsmead with the homies.ID: hnvbhtv
Tbh I read how many people are working on it and I’m sort of intrigued. Not into Harry Potter but it makes me wonder wtf they’re making. I had assumed it was just some cash in.ID: hnvci8b
I mean, it’s a AAA open world, action adventure title with probably some RPG-lite elements. This is very likely WB Games biggest project to date & it has the potential to be their biggest hit ever.ID: hnvby46
I doubt it'll be like PersonaID: hnvc92t
Lol yeah I meant More like , an adventure where you are a part time dungeon crawler and then take part in life simulator type activities like class or hanging out with students
Not so much similar like it’ll be a turn based rpg. I mean honestly I have no idea I don’t think anyone does based off the little infoID: hnvzfre
it's not just Hogwarts
the forbidden forest, hogsmeade, azkaban and diagon alley are all part of the world.
so this will either be a GTAV level smash or a Cyberpunk level disasterID: hnwhdql
The chances of this being a Rockstar-tier game are basically zero. Not just for this game, but for nearly ANY game. Don’t set your expectations there.ID: hnwhxi2
I wouldn’t even expect a Rockstar-tier game from Rockstar anymore.
Excited to play this game in 2025! Let’s goID: hnwtq5d
Not even a big Harry Potter fan, but I’m excited for this game. The world outshines the plot from the books IMO
Kinda like Star WarsID: hnx1spf
how is this game not nearly done by now?
“Will be”??ID: hnwdr5f
"Have been working hard"
Battlefield 2042 had 3 studios working on the game and we all see how that went.
Odd timing lol
Not a good sign. They should be finishing development for a long time now and they bring help at this moment? 2023, guess the info about development hell was true.
This game could be absolutely massive for gaming as a whole and be super innovative or it could be a massive disappointment based solely on expectations like cyberpunk.ID: hnw0ujw
Or neither of those, because it's not a dichotomy
Hopefully they assist with making this game better than the multiple studios assisted with the development of Battlefield 2042.
Shouldn't be too difficult considering how terrible of a job they did with Battlefield 2042 and this game isn't being published by EA.
So is this still a 2020s game, or are we never seeing this thing until the 2030s?
This sounds like starting up or starting over or at best just starting to hit stride and need manpower…ID: hnvz9am
I have no idea how you came to that conclusion from this newsID: hnw9nud
Question, not a conclusion 🙂ID: hnw7512
You really think it's going to take at LEAST 8 more years in development before it comes out? You've lost your mind.ID: hnw959u
No I don’t, but it seems like a weird announcement.
