over 1000 people are working on this game. can't wait to see the gameplay in tga

ID: 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 sign

ID: hnv0343

It is a normal thing in the industry, especially with such a big game that you have several support studios

ID: hnvlul2

Yeah but it’s only became a recent trend to announce it, which I still find a bit odd

ID: 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 kitchen

ID: 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.

5 : Anonymous2021/12/09 18:52 ID: hnvvohz

Seems.. a little late to announce that no? I mean the games supposed to be out next year.

6 : Anonymous2021/12/09 16:33 ID: hnva5d4

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 game

ID: 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 Persona

ID: 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 info

ID: hnvzfre

it's not just Hogwarts

the forbidden forest, hogsmeade, azkaban and diagon alley are all part of the world.

7 : Anonymous2021/12/09 18:19 ID: hnvql6a

so this will either be a GTAV level smash or a Cyberpunk level disaster

ID: 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.

8 : Anonymous2021/12/09 18:27 ID: hnvruv0

Excited to play this game in 2025! Let’s go

ID: hnwtq5d


9 : Anonymous2021/12/09 20:34 ID: hnwax2m

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 Wars

ID: hnx1spf


10 : Anonymous2021/12/09 20:07 ID: hnw6v0j

how is this game not nearly done by now?

11 : Anonymous2021/12/09 20:07 ID: hnw6wjm

“Will be”??

ID: hnwdr5f

"Have been working hard"

12 : Anonymous2021/12/09 19:45 ID: hnw3ikq

Battlefield 2042 had 3 studios working on the game and we all see how that went.

13 : Anonymous2021/12/09 16:58 ID: hnve3gx

Odd timing lol

14 : Anonymous2021/12/09 18:40 ID: hnvtr7b

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.

15 : Anonymous2021/12/09 19:21 ID: hnw002d

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

16 : Anonymous2021/12/09 22:55 ID: hnwvp8s

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.

17 : Anonymous2021/12/09 18:14 ID: hnvpuvz

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 news

ID: 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.
