It is possible that it is a fake but the footage looks quite good.
I see in the article that it could be Rocksteady developing the game - with that kind of pedigree behind it, it could be quite an awesome game!
YES! I’m not that into RPG games but anything related to the Potter Universe makes me excited.
I keep looking at it and either someone is getting fired or it was intentional to get some hype going
In the article they mention it was obtained through a focus group… so at first glance i’d say someone is getting fired but then again it might be intentional. We’ve had “leaks” before and those where always kind of obviously done to gain hype.
Well, generally how the focus groups run is :
- Sign a NDA
- Leave all electronics and recording devices at the door
- Play game
- Answer questionnaire / conduct interview
- reiterate NDA
- return electronics
So unless someone is getting fired it’s an intentional leak or a very clever hoax
Someone looking to get huge upvotes on reddit who has a wearable spycam?
This would be a strange and crappy way to get hype for a Potter game but anything is possible I guess.
It would be a really weird and unique way of building hype for a game imo
Edit: And the video has been taken down lol
And not uncommon either though. The last God of War had “leaked” footage, Fallout 4 had a massive “leaked” footage thing just before launch. And even more recently Spider-Man and FIFA19 had “leaked” footage prior to release. It’s a cheap trick to generate hype that seems to get used more and more. Wouldn’t surprise me if they announced a beta/pre-release date for Q1 2019 in the next month or two.
damn, video blocked ;-(
Mirrors are still available:
I think 2021 is to going to be a quieter year of releases as we start feeling the impact on development that 2020 caused.
