Interactive Entertainment purchased and revived in 2017 after its closure in 2016. According to the report, the game is planned for release on PS5 and Xbox Series X late next year.

Bloomberg have now confirmed that the footage (now deleted) was real and was from an early build of a massive open world game that is currently in production at Avalanche Software.

A new report based on inside sources confirms the game is now in development, and that it's an open-world RPG set in a massive recreation of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, and that Warner Bros. plans to officially reveal it later this year. "Based on what I've seen from fans, I do believe that Rowling's comments have had some effect on the level of excitement they have for the Harry Potter RPG or other upcoming content", Grady wrote in an email. 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.

This game was reportedly due to be revealed at E3 2020 before the event was canceled due to the ongoing pandemic. The report also states that players will be able to "role-play as wizards and roam a vast, open-world re-creation of Hogwarts and its surrounding areas". Now the official announcement will reportedly take place sometime after DC FanDome in August.

Footage from a very early version of the now untitled game began circulating back in 2018.

The crux of Bloomberg's report also highlights that J.K. Rowling has very little involvement with the project, but some employees are uncomfortable with her recent comments against Transgender Women.
