Ah, Reddit, what would we do without you? 1 minute and 20 seconds of an upcoming Harry Potter RPG has been leaked online and covered by Reddit.
Since Warner Bros has the rights to the Harry Potter games and they own Batman studio Rocksteady who are reportedly working on a new game, perhaps this could be it?
The poster also shared the following information:
