Upon arrival, strange events begin to materialise In the Forbidden Forrest and trouble begins to brew within the castle walls. Together with Professor Elezar Fig, you embark on a journey through both familiar and never before seen locations to bring to light the truth behind these mysterious occurrences.

Warner looked for senior writers in April 2017 „with a deep understanding of British culture and grammatical presentation” for Avalanche Studios, and Eurogamer also reports that the game could be called Harry Potter Magic Awakened or Harry Potter Magic Forever.
Something big is in development… although it’s not announced yet.
