You have received a late acceptance to the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry and soon discover that you are no ordinary student: you possess an unusual ability to perceive and master Ancient Magic. Only you can decide if you will protect this secret for the good of all, or yield to the temptation of more sinister magic.

Players will create a character who will attend Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry in the 1800s. They will experience the life of a student as they live the unwritten and embark on a dangerous journey to uncover a hidden truth of the wizarding world.


The game was originally leaked on Reddit in October 2018 alongside an unofficial trailer which showed an extensive character creation, spell-casting, magical creatures, and exploration. No official comment was given by either Warner Bros nor J. K. Rowling, although many reputable sources inside WB Avalanche, including high ranking employees, teased or claimed to know of the game.[3][4][5][6]

The game was announced via a video game showcase stream by Sony on 16 September, 2020.[7] It was set to be available to players in 2021, but the date was later delayed to 2022 to continue developing the game for a better experience for players.[1]
